Yoga on Horseback
OmHorse yoga is the only mounted yoga studio in the Midwest and is located right here at Strides to Success offering both mounted and mat yoga classes. Facilitated by one of the pioneers of mounted yoga, it’s a unique and life changing practice. Mounted yoga is not just for horse people, no horse experience is required. Even if you have never ridden or practice yoga before, you can benefit from this unique practice. It brings you into your body in the present moment and allows you to connect to the horse and to your heart on a deeper level. No horse experience necessary.
Because of the nature of the work at Strides to Success, we are only able to open limited slots for sessions and offer only private or duet classes. We also are only able to accommodate students 180lbs or under due to the nature of the practice and limited mounted work at Strides. Mat classes are open to the public and are are offered for selected sessions. New sessions will start this fall.
Private classes are $75 for one hour. Duet classes (you and a friend) are $50 per hour each. Lessons are also sold in a packages of 5: $350 for 5 privates or $225 for 5 duets. If you are interested in mounted yoga, please call the barn at 317-838-7002.
