Bhakti Yoga: The Path of Devotion

Bhakti Yoga is the yoga of heart. Bhakti is whatever ignites love and devotion in you. It enables you to see the Divine in all things, including yourself. It humbles you in the gratitude of all your teachers, including yourself. We'll stoke this devotional fire through a system of physical and energetic movements to align our outward postures with our internal stance. In this practice, we’ll observe the dialogue that arises in the heat of devotion. Physical movement becomes a portal into emotional, mental, and spiritual movement. All movement devoted to and coming from that which we love. This is a practice of self inquiry and investigation, rooted in love. Sit. Breathe. Move. Chant. Become alive.

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.

Be prepared to sweat and work in a whole new way.
