Pasture Meets Posture

Think cowgirl and the expansive array of images conjured up most likely doesn’t include a yogi stretched in downward-dog pose—at least not yet. Now there’s the biannual Equestrian Yoga Retreat for women, a seven-day yin-meets-y’all phenomenon hosted by the Home Ranch near Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Mornings are spent alternating between hatha-based yoga and horseback outings, but the connection doesn’t end there: The poses specifically address saddle-stressed bodies, while rid- ing sessions focus on yogic tenets like balance and breathing.
