In Our Horses, OurselvesPaula Josa-Jones helps to open unexplored doors to forging new partnerships with our horses through developing our nonverbal communication - an engaging, poetic and insightful book.



In this fascinating book, dancer, choreographer Paula Josa-Jones combines her two greatest passions — movement and horses. By helping us develop greater somatic awareness —consciousness of breath, integrated and coherent movement, and the understanding of movements and touch as potent channels of communication — she opens all-new doors to the true partnership with horses we seek. Through stories, strategies, and over 65 meditations and gentle exercises, Josa-Jones shows us how to develop this awareness away from the horse, as well as how being with the horse can help this consciousness continue to evolve. This book will help bring us a closer, more intuitive connection with our horses, it helps us become more comfortable in our own skin, and better prepared to  act with balance, sensitivity, and kindness.


Paula Josa-Jones is a dancer, choreographer, and movement educator known for her visually rich, emotionally charged dance theatre, including inter-species work with horses, dancers, and riders. She has been called ‘one of the country’s leading choreographic conceptualists,’ and her dances have been produced in Russia, Europe, Mexico and the US.
