@horse_yoga_girl Took Her Practice from the Mat to the Saddle

According to Angela Nuñez (@horse_yoga_girl), Snowy, her 9-year-old Appaloosa, is “a pretty chill guy” — an essential trait for a horse, if you plan on practicing yoga on its back. Angela, a barn manager and registered yoga teacher in Middleburg, Virginia, decided to combine the two main passions of her life: “I thought it would be cool to transfer my practice from the mat onto my horse and see how it went.” Fortunately, she and Snowy already had a strong bond, which started on the day that he was born. “Horses have such a peaceful energy about them,” Angela explains. “Practicing yoga with them just kind of takes your mind and body and soul to a whole other place that it’s hard to describe in words.”
