Tranquil Transitions

The physical practice of yoga helps us attain greater mobility, which leads us to feel better in our daily lives and thus be happier and more awesome people!

Off the Wall!

Using the wall for inversions is a wonderful way to increase strength and learn techniques for your inversions, but sometimes we get stuck there! In this workshop, we will look specifically at how to become independent in our inversions and not rely on the wall. By delving into the reasons we become dependent on the wall -- physics and fear! -- we will establish a foundation of physical balance and inner trust in ourselves to take our inversions to the middle of the room!

This workshop can be taken individually or as a series.

One. Free. Love.

A guided meditation followed by vinyasa flow that explores the three mantras "I am one", "I am free," and "I am love." These three concepts taken separately are beautiful mantras to consider different ways of looking at how we live our lives. Together they create an uplifting meditation. In this class, we will use our physical practice to explore these concepts as we move through postures to unlock their meaning, so we can take them from the mat and into our lives.

This workshop can be taken individually or as a series.

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.

By listening to the intelligence of your body you can create a deep, rewarding struggle-free practice. These principles of working through your struggles and fear apply to all aspects of your life. Be prepared to sweat and work in a whole new way.
