Online Yoga for Riders Course
Heidi partnered with HorseClass to bring you this 30-day online yoga course designed for equestrians. This course will create more mindfulness of your physical and mental state and help you to strengthen and find more balance in your mind, body and ultimately your riding position. The course material covers the major movement and alignment principles of yoga and is a very comprehensive program for riders and non-riders alike.
Hola! Mucho Gusto!
Heidi Blackman (Studio Owner & Instructor) I started practicing yoga in 2003 while attending university at UC San Diego. I dabbled in many different types of yoga but eventually found my silver slipper with SmartFlow yoga and Annie Carpenter. I am a 500-ERYT yoga instructor and a certified SmartFlow yoga instructor. I completed my initial 200 hr training with YogaWorks and Kia Miller in 2012 and my 300+ hr advanced training with Annie Carpenter in 2014. I am also an avid equestrian and co-founder of Equisol Retreats, a horseback riding and yoga retreat business in Nosara, Costa Rica and founder of NellyBelle Apparel, a sustainable athletic wear company.
I partnered with Callie Rae King and Horse Class in 2020 to offer a 30-day online Yoga for Riders course that has received amazing feedback. The course is geared for beginner and intermediate yogis who are looking to improve their balance, flexibility, strength, self-awareness and confidence on the yoga mat and in the saddle!

Ramdom tidbits: I am a mother of two young kiddos, three dogs, one cat, a growing flock of chickens and two horses. My husband, Graham, is a very patient man ;-) I am a Divemaster and I dabble in surfing. I love veggies and cooking and baking. I love nature and hiking. I love spiritual studies and mindfulness practice. I have a Master's degree in International Environmental Policy and do consulting as a fishery policy analyst. Hablo español.
This has been the absolute best [Yoga for Riders] program for me, thank you so much!! It is the perfect blend of variety of poses, the breath, the meditation addressing the mind and soul, the length (30 minutes is the sweet spot). It was nicely edited. I loved the variety of locations where you filmed. Heidi is an amazing teacher with excellent reminders for modification and adjustments. The verbal instruction was so good most often I didn't have to view the screen to see what was happening. Heidi's voice is very warm and supportive. My body is feeling more limber and strong. I look forward to yoga practice and always feel better afterwards. I've tried other yoga videos and online courses, but nothing comes close to this perfect blend. Thank you so much for putting this together!
