Sunrise Meditation with Horses

Meditation at Sunrise

St. Vincent, Saturday the 5th of April.

I enjoy sunrise, in fact, I am in love with sunrise. Right before the break of dawn, I awake with a clear mind. I take my thick western saddle blanket and find a beautiful spot in the horse field for an early morning meditation and yoga session.

My horses live in a big paddock with Grugru trees, they have a small shelter, hills and attached grass fields. Here they roam freely in their family herd.

The Grugru trees are in nut season. The horses wander peacefully around the paddock to chew on the fresh nuts. The views are stunning.

Almond Trees. Trumpet Bush. Sweet Grass. Palms. Sky. Clouds. Ocean. Flowers.

The music of nature is soothing. Birds. Insects. Waves. Wind. Grazing horses.

Meditation with Horses


Sitting down in easy pose in this magical place helps you arrive to a peaceful state of mind.

A peaceful state of mind attracts horses. Horses can feel what you feel.

I enjoy teaching this lesson of quieting the mind before working working with horses.

Here is what my student, Alessia, wrote about her experimental horse lesson this morning:



The early yoga session with curious animals

Today, at 6 AM, which is quite early for me, I took part to a yoga session with Stina. I knew about yoga before, that was not my first time, but today was definitively a NEW EXPERIENCE for me!

First of all let speak about the view: the flora in St Vincent is a rare spectacle that my imagination was not expecting to enjoy, so doing yoga in such a place, with nothing else but nature, where I, as a human being, was not anymore in a dominant position, was extraordinary.

Curious horses come to join. Nevertheless the best part was to make this uncommon experience with
the horses living right there on the field.

Their names
Jack the Curious,
Helena the Player and
Darling the Compassionate.

Jack the Curious

Elena the Player

Darling the Compassionate

Darling the Compassionate

I never saw horses so curious in my life, wild ones, but really friendly.

While Stina was explaining me how to do the exercises they were constantly around us; looking sometimes like protecting us, “disturbing” us asking for attention or only standing there thinking about “their own life”.

The point is that they were part of the landscape, and I too was part of this moment running out of the time. It was simply magic, and I use this word simply on purpose. It was just perfect to be part of
this equilibrium between animals, nature and human being.

Part of this world, which is my new reality.

Thank you Alessia.

  1. Lovely Stina! It is so nice to think about: here you sit in your caribean paradise doing yoga and meditation with your 8 horses – and here I sit in my norwegian dreamvalley in the morning sun meditating, listening to the river, to the birds, to the peaceful atmosphere, surrounded by snow and by my own 8 horses…

    • Dear Tina,
      Thank you so much for your kind words. Your herd is amazing, and i guess even more now as you have developed your whole setting. I look forward to teach with you again in the magical mountains of dreamvalley
      Much sunshine and rainbows from St. Vincent

  2. Reading this post just makes me want to be there with you so much more! I can only imagine the peace there must be in such a setting…

    Although here also, I have the chance to feel this deep connection with nature when I take time to meditate in my own paddock with my horses. We are blessed to be able to have those moments!
