MY STORY

After 10 years of teaching Therapeutic Riding, PATH Intl. Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructor, Calle Poindexter decided to combine her two passions and completed her 200 hours of Yoga Teacher Training through YogaZo in Albuquerque, NM. While promoting independence through Therapeutic Riding and empowerment through Yoga, her program curriculum, Ashva Yoga (“Ashva” meaning “horse” in Sanskrit), is focused on the client as an individual, their ability levels and personal goals both on and off the mat. Using the foundational principles of yoga in combination with equine-assisted activities, Ashva Yoga helps to calm and strengthen the mind, body, and soul. Each individually tailored lesson begins with a yoga practice and transitions into working with the horse, implementing the yoga principles from the mat, to the arena, and into daily life.
