Dance of Equus is about relationships, movement, nature and energy. This is learning how to be in relationship with horse, which assists us in being in relationship with our self and others. Learning to tune in to our energy assists us in shifting this energy to create more balance in life, moving block energy to create more flow, tuning in to our energy centres to create more harmony and being aware of our energy for self-regulation. Spending time in nature has numerous benefits to us physically and psychological, such as lowering blood pressure, improving sleep, boosting serotonin levels (our feel good neurotransmitter), improving attention span, among many more. Movement benefits our mind and body. Young children require movement to help in the development of healthy brains, but people of all ages benefit from movement. It increases blood flow throughout the body and brain improving our cognitive function and helps reduce stress, which are just two of the many benefits movement has on our psychological wellbeing. By engaging our muscles we maintain our strength and ability to move.
