One-of-a-kind private sessions and workshops combining meditation, yoga, and mindfulness while working with horses to strengthen our connection with nature and our intuitive self.
“The horse is a mirror to your soul.” ~ Buck Brannaman
Horse & Yoga Integration is a unique yoga experience practiced with horses to help clear the mind, ease anxiety and reconnect with your innate power.
Interacting with horses gives us a rare opportunity to bond with another being in our own practice, without judgment or expectations.
Yoga is truly about slowing down, becoming more in tune with the body & mind and being completely present – the baseline to connecting with horses. We work with horses who are completely at ease and relish the contact and attention. No equipment is used, besides halter and leadrope, to magnify the power of trust and connection.
We begin this unique experience by meeting and learning about your equine partner. After connecting through touch and grooming, enjoy a grounding practice on the earth before mindfully moving through postures on your selected horse.
You will be guided through a blissful sequence designed not only for you, but to intensify the yogic connection with the horse. We end this bareback practice in a powerful, deeply relaxing savasana and close with a mindfulness meditation to soothe the soul. A one-of-a-kind afternoon filled with trust, connection and self-care.
Horse & Yoga Integration is a deep way to feel embodiment, give meaning to your yoga practice and reconnect to nature: especially if city life is leaving you feeling stressed and out of touch with the natural world.
Maelani has lifelong experience with horses and has worked with guests who have had previous fears and those who have never touched a horse; allowing them to feel comfortable, safe and grounded. This ultimate mindfulness experience is suitable for ALL levels (beginner-advanced) in either yoga or horsemanship.
Due to the changeable nature of working with horses, our private sessions range from 45-60 mins. 2 person sessions normally run for 75 mins.
All of this happens at Highfield Equestrian, an idyllic spot only 25 mins away from the Melbourne CBD.

“The most amazing experience of my life! The connection was surreal and enabled me to be so aware of myself and this beautiful creature. One of a kind, thank you Mae!”
“The connection is incredible. It felt exhilarating, the trust I had to put into both Maelani and Christy (horse) terrified me and got me out of my comfort zone. I had to use so many of the tools we use in yoga including breathing, mindfulness, focus and balance. There was a moment when I finally had the courage to lie back on Christy. As someone who previously had a fear of horses, I cried from pure joy and also out of pride.”
