Soulful Horse, Yoga, Meditation & Gong

Our beginner yoga class with meditation and gong is a safe place to come and try out yoga whether you're an experienced yogi or it's your first time. No experience needed.

This year We will be hosting guest yoga instructors for each class. Read their individual bio below.

All classes will take place in the arena or an outdoor pasture with three to five horses. You'll be inside a fenced pen to keep the horses at a safe distance yet close enough for you to enjoy their peaceful energy.

Horses move through the world with a beautiful balanced vibration. Spending time in their presence opens us to the space of experiencing the impact energy has on our well being.

Your Yoga Instructors

Katie O'ShaughnessyKatie O'Shaughnessy
After being diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder, Katie turned to yoga for healing. This ignited her interest in yoga and set her on a path to teaching. Katie completed a 200-hour yoga certification in May 2016. Katie now teaches Hatha yoga and stand up paddle board yoga, and she loves helping people find joy in moving their bodies.

Ash has been a yoga practitioner for three years and has her Yoga Alliance 200-hr certification. Ash believes in living a life filled with joy and gratitude. These feelings inform and guide her teaching and practice, which is focused on helping her students better connect to themselves and their surroundings. Join Ash for her class at Soulful Prairies and start leading a healthier lifestyle!

In the spring of 2017 Carina celebrated the completion of her first 200hrs of yogic studies at Perennial Yoga Wisdom School in Madison, WI. Carina's tenacious curiosity brought her to yoga and is what allows her to continuously unearth new ways to perceive the world. She wants to share her curiosities with others by cultivating an ever-present field for questions regarding the movement of the body, the intricacies of the mind, and the mystery of the spirit that lives in all beings. Her enthusiasm for the use of props to enhance asanas allows her slow flow Vinyasa style to be accessible to all students. She is enchanted by the way each of the elements manifests throughout the practice of yoga and honors these phenomena by encouraging a playful yet reverent space to experiment. Currently, you can attend a class of Carina’s upstairs at the Woodstock Yoga Lounge right on the Woodstock Square Historic District!
