Every Mother Counts

All proceeds from this class will be donated to Every Mother Counts.
303,000 women die every year as a result of complications during pregnancy and childbirth. That's one woman every two minutes. For each of these deaths, an average of four orphans are left behind. And most of these women are not only the caretakers, but they are the teachers, the healthcare providers or the community leaders - the ones who ensure that children get food, education and clean water. AND 98% of these deaths are preventable. Please help us spread this message and address the barriers to maternal health around the globe and at home!

Stalking Your Fear

How does fear affect you? Interested in learning how to change your relationship to fear? Forrest Yoga teaches you to use fear as a warning call, to listen, be alert and proceed cautiously. In this session you will use breath and asana to access, comfort and support the parts of your body that are constricted by fear. This new approach to our fearful places brings about change quickly. Your body responds and relief can be felt immediately. You learn to move breath into these areas, stay steady, and remain present as difficult emotions surface, shift and transform. When you treat your fearful parts with attention and compassion, you allow the ‘wonderful’ back into your life.
