Horses, Yoga and Sunfood
coaching, meditation, retreat with horses
With the hectic pace and demands of modern life, many people feel stressed and over-worked. Through the groundwork that we do with the horses and during the yoga, meditation and pranayama sessions (breathing technique), you will discover lots of new things.
We will also explore inner attitude, inner silence, relaxation, centring, grounding, balance, breathing, body-posture, building up of confidence, non-verbal communication, tenderness and clarity.
The underlying principle of yoga is ‘meditation in motion’. Working with horses is the embodiment of 'meditation in motion' . The emphasis is on working within your own body to de-stress and regulate the internal systems. Ultimately coming into a state of conscious bliss.
It is not important that you have previous experience with horses, yoga and/or meditation because we give a lot of individual attention to every individual person. So you can go at your own pace and will be able to return home feeling more grounded, refreshed and balanced.
The nourishing healthy whole food diet will heal from the inside out. We will eat only delicious homemade meals, using the freshest and organically grown ingredients. We search for local seasonal ingredients. Exotic fruits, like mangoes, papayas, figs etc are also on the menu!
Breakfast can be anything from almond milk with granola, banana pancakes to crackers with avocado and cashew cheese with a smoothie prepared with Super-foods.
We’ll create lots of delicious meals together including soup, sushi, lasagna and desserts and we’ll then get to eat what we’ve created (detailed recipes will be provided for you to take home).
Whenever the weather allows (which is most of the time in this gloriously warm part of southern Spain) dining takes place outdoors.

"Wisdom of Horses Yoga Retreat with Tara and Kim, who are such generous and authentic people, was one of the most life-changing experiences for me. Located in a beautiful Spanish village surrounded by mountains, astonishing views and pleasant climate made the perfect place for yoga retreat. Creative, delicious daily meals full of healthy local ingredients and 'live food' was the great opportunity to heal my body. On the other hand, yoga classes were just on the right level for everyone from beginners to more advanced, and combined with meditation gave a wonderful start to a new day leaving you feeling relaxed and energised at the same time. But the real highlight of this retreat were sessions with Kim and her horses. The beautiful bond between Kim and horses was easily seen and for me she brought the human – horse relationship to a different level. I was able to learn a lot about myself through interaction with horses and see many thing from a different perspective. Being surrounded by like-minded people gave me new strength on my life journey. I would recommend this retreat to anyone with all my heart!" Klaudia
"It's been a month since I did the yoga and wisdom of horses retreat and I must say that the effects of the week are still working on me...
First of all the location is stunning but it was Tara, and Kim with her three beautiful horses that made my week unforgettable. As soon as I met them I felt a sense of ease and relaxation. They are people that know their own hearts and with whom you can just be yourself, Tara is inspiring with her yoga and her knowledge of rawfood and nutrition, and very generous with everything she offered us. All the food was so fresh and gorgious! Our day out into the mountains was a lot of fun and so peaceful.. Tara's radiance and zest for life are a joy to be around.To get to know Kim and her horses was a real gift and she helped me to meet the horses in a way that I have longed for but never quite managed by myself. I know I am not done there yet and that I will be back. I am grateful for the connections that were made during the week and feel deeply nourished by the whole experience."
