Forrest Yoga is a powerful and life changing practice created by Ana Forrest.
We learn how to relieve tension by relaxing our neck in most poses to soften upper back and shoulder tightness.
We emphasize connecting to earth with active feet to help strengthen and support knee health.
Classes are either un-cooled or heated to 80-degrees to help warm the muscles for a safe stretch.
Each class is fresh and different. We might choose to design a sequence for backbends, twists, inversion, etc., or work towards a specific pose such as Crow or Lotus, or some other theme that inspires.
We spend more time is our poses (5-8 breaths) to allow enough time for safe alignment and for fully experiencing the pose.
Most classes are All Levels. We always offer modifications for newer students or those working with injuries, as well as up-levels for more experienced students.
We offer hands-on assists (optional) in poses that will help you open and go deeper into the heart of the pose.
