Rider Yoga Elective Offered
We’re thrilled to host talented trainer and yoga teacher, David Stickler, as he offers a free Rider Yoga elective at the Best Horse Practices Summit. Stickler taught the BHPS Rider Fitness elective at our 2017 conference. Watch it via On Demand here.
His session will begin at 7 am, Tuesday, October 9, in the Strater Hotel’s Pullman Room. Come prepared to move and wear comfortable clothes. Let us know at Sunday’s registration if you would like to attend. Class size is limited.
Stickler majored in exercise science at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado, where he played defensive line before playing professional football overseas as a middle linebacker.
The Coloradan teaches popular yoga classes, including acrobatic yoga, and strength classes, in Durango. In his spare time, the 33-year old performs as a circus aerial acrobat. Recently, he completed a six-month visit to Nepal and India.
Stickler says improving rider fitness with yoga can be a lifestyle change. It’s a matter of continued awareness and not just daily exercises. “What follows are not just one-time exercises. They are sustained movements,” he said.
