A little about Tammy and Janice

For over 12 years, Tammy Pate and Janice Baxter have had an incredible time developing their Yoga and Horsemanship retreats.  They have designed this clinic for equestrians and yoga practitioners of all levels. Tammy's clinics and demonstrations are designed to bring awareness of mental and physical balance and above all, improve your horsemanship. Everything you will do at the clinic is designed to gently bring about the inner balance that improves your ability to bond with and communicate with horses. Janice began teaching yoga and meditation in 1972. She believes that "yoga is a way of life that develops heightened sensitivity to horses, as horses are a way of life that brings deeper intention to Yoga." For Janice, yoga and horses are a natural integration of awareness, inspiration, balance, and joy.

“Yoga is the Vedic science of self-actualization, and horses are already self-actualized. I am honored to share my yoga life perspective to inspire and support your own self-realization. I believe that practicing inner peace contributes toward world peace. It is my intention to inspire equestrians to practice yoga and yogis to ride horses for life!”
