Open Your Heart: Yoga Benefit Class with Forrest Yoga Guardian Teacher Colleen Millen & Forrest Yoga Certified teacher (and FYMP grad) Kristin "Kiki" Goldsmith

March 20, 2011, 1:00-3:30pm


Suggested Donation: $50 to Kelley Rush's breast cancer healing fund (make check out to Kelley Rush or cash accepted the day of the event)

Free up your chest, upper back and shoulders in this exhilarating Forrest Yoga backbending sequence! In this 2.5 hour workshop, you will learn how to breathe in fresh aliveness to the parts of you that have hardened or shut down from past pain. Kiki and Colleen will help you to access and open your heart with their warmth, humor and compassion.

The healing work you do in class and the donation you give will lend energetic and financial support to a vital member of the Forrest Yoga Hoop of the Teachers and dear friend of Kiki and Colleen's, Kelley Rush. Kelley is a Forrest Yoga Guardian teacher, Assistant Program Manager and Mentorship Program liaison, and is currently walking her healing road from breast cancer.

A few weeks ago, Kelley faced a double mastectomy and now looks ahead at 3 months of chemo treatments in which she will not be able to teach at her yoga studio Two River's Yoga, in Carnation, WA. And Kelley is not alone in her journey: About 207,090 new cases of invasive breast cancer will occur among women in the United States during 2010. And an estimated 39,840 women will die from breast cancer this year (Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation). Join us in support of Kelley and in honor of all the women in our lives who have faced this disease with strength, courage and heart!

"Kelley has touched many people within and outside our community, she has unconditionally given and supported many people on their healing journeys; it is now time for Kelley to receive support for her own healing and time for us to give back to her. Let us support Kelley to walk this journey with grace and as such, to create a luminous full circle of healing the hoop." -Ana Forrest

Learn to safely unlock your habitual holding patterns, strengthen and lengthen the muscles in these areas to create more space, stability and freedom. When we create space in the body, we create space for our spirit. We can then walk the path of our spirit with much more grace and ease. The physical yoga practice will be followed by some Truth speaking from Michelle and Sara about their own healing journeys, and work helping others on the path.

We’ll discover what limits us and move beyond our limitations to create new possibilities in our practice. This is mixed-level class.

Each Forrest Yoga Intensive class is designed and sequenced with a specific focus area in order to help move your practice to the next level. You will leave feeling cleansed, awake, and refreshed.

Shamanic Reiki Level 1 Certification with Erica Mather and Stacey Gibbons
Featuring Erica Mather, Forrest Yoga Guardian
Schedule for both days:

9-11am Forrest Yoga Practice (with Erica)

Saturday: Open Your Heart: Often in yoga “opening your heart” is described in terms of Divinity and surrender.  In Forrest Yoga, we consider the process as steeped in a history that necessitated the heart to close itself off, to build protective walls and armor.  In this backbending class, we will explore the process of taking off those shields, experience the original pain, and to breathe it out.

Sunday: Unraveling the Mysteries of the Hips, Neck and Shoulders: description coming.

12-5pm Shamanic Reiki Level One Certification  (with Stacey)
With modules in:  History of Reiki, Attunement Process/Theory of Healing Crisis, The Mechanisms of Energy, Attunements, Power Animal Guided Journey, The Chakras, Yogis, Healers, and Shamans, Reiki Practice.

As part of nature we are a changing system within other changing systems. Deeply interconnected, we — and the world around us — are never static. We are in constant transition.

At The Big Web we'll explore those ever-changing connections: How we relate to ourselves, to others and our surroundings. We'll also investigate the dance of interdependence between each of these — the interplay between the environment and us. Through Forrest Yoga workshops and a range of exceptional seminars, at The Big Web, we'll explore our own power. We will deepen our understanding of our responsibility to, and limitations within, a world in constant flux. 

•    Learn how to simply be and connect to your own truth.
•    Get curious about around what holds you back, physically and emotionally.
•    Explore your own balance by attuning to the natural synthesis of life.
•    Be inspired to weave your own contribution into the global web.

Get excited by change!

Our Forrest Yoga practice incorporates many healing ceremonies and traditions of Native Amercian culture.

By working with the Four Directions and their associated elements, we are able to more readably focus, comprehend, and connect with specific areas in our lives.

Over the weekend we will enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, canoeing, and relaxing! We will tap into our artistic expression and create talking sticks from elements we find in nature. Drumming is another powerful way to connect with nature, and on this retreat everyone will be provided a hand drum with which to play. Each of these drums are handmade from an animal hide and when you play them, you feel the energy of those animals come back to life with the beat of the drum matching the beat of your heart opening the doors for an inspiring journey within.
This retreat is limited to a small intimate gathering which provides you a chance to go deeper within yourself, fine tune your yoga practice, and grow friendships with our other members. Join us as we celebrate our yoga practice, connect with nature, and invigorate our minds and bodies!

North: Element of Air, Dealing with Overview, Looking at Your World from a Higher Perspective Yoga Poses: Arm Balances

The Body Beautiful: A Celebration of Strength, Breath, and Beauty
Featuring , Forrest Yoga
Body Kneads Yoga
1145 Reservoir Avenue
Cranston, Rhode Island 02920 United States
(401) 632-0878
Greg Jamiel returns to Body Kneads Yoga for an All Levels workshop focused on connecting deeply to the strength, breath, and beauty that lives within each of us! From the natural beauty of Block Island, Narragansett Bay, Cape Cod and up to the Adirondacks, New England is home to some of the most beautiful places in the country. It is very easy to see the beauty that surrounds us, but it may take us a bit longer to feel that beauty within.

In this workshop we will explore some areas of our body that are often overlooked for their beauty and power. Stomach, hips, arms, and heart are just a few places we will celebrate by playing with hip and heart openers, arm balances, abs, and standing poses. By acknowledging and reframing certain perceptions, we will begin to develop a new sense of appreciation of our bodies just the way they are! 

What to Expect in this Workshop:
•Feel the strength of our body in ways you may not have felt before
•Powerful hands-on assists from Greg and his team to help you feel the depths of each pose in a safe and supported way
•Flirt with your edge! You will feel your muscles working, and you will be able to explore where your edge is
•Use your breath to stretch, lengthen, and access different groups of muscles
•Learn tools to help you reframe and strengthen your body image

From Pain to Pleasure: Healing Poses that Will Delight your Back
Featuring , Forrest Yoga
Ella & Fleur Hot Yoga
23a Pittville Street
Cheltenham
+ 01.2422.26800
A wise one once said “the greatest gift you can give this world is your health”… yet so many of us suffer with aches, pains, tightness and physical unease that we feel this gift is outside of our reach.

Focusing on the spine and the myriad of ways we encounter back pain — from the neck, through shoulders and right down to the tailbone — we’ll explore why and how certain pain occurs.

Use this session to start to recognise your pain and begin to move it out. You’ll leave with tools that will help strengthen, lubricate and lengthen your spine.

Practitioners of all levels are welcome, especially beginners and those suffering with back injuries — you’ll be well looked after! If you don't suffer from back pain this is still a fantastic workshop to learn to work with your spine in a whole new way. This is a practical class, so come ready to move, bring your questions and your curiosity.

Charlie suffered from lower back and shoulder pain for years. It wasn’t until she took her injuries to her teacher training with Ana Forrest that she began to understand how to unravel the pain and heal it. Charlie’s lower back is now strong and pain-free and her shoulders are almost there too. She’ll share many of the techniques she has used to heal herself in her own unique and compassionate way.

The Hero\'s Journey - A Guided Quest with Sandra Heider in Peterborough
Featuring , Forrest Yoga
Equilibrium Yoga and Well-Being Centre - Peterborough
31-32 Aston Business Park
Peterborough
+44 1733 370002

As growing, curious and thoughtful human beings, how do we make sense of the life we have been given? How do we find our unique place in the world and our contribution to it?

“The Hero's Journey” is a weekend quest for deeper commitment and purpose, built around the timeless story of Parzival and the Quest for the Holy Grail. 

Together we will walk the story, working creatively with your own story and encourage you to be the author of your own life. What is your Grail – that which your heart most desires? We link your journey to that of Parzival and the archetypal characters he meets who may have challenges, wisdom and insight for you too.

The day includes a 90 minute Forrest Yoga class, story telling, creative, emotional and intellectual exploration of who you are and where you are going, including visualisations and group exploration.

The aim is to help you explore the choices that lie ahead of you; for you to be successful, happy and inspired to make your own unique contribution in the world. We work closely with you through a series of carefully planned and facilitated experiences.

Sandra will be joined by coach therapist and leadership development consultant Jon Chapman.

Workshops in Sweden with Sandra Heider
Featuring , Forrest Yoga
Sandra Heider will be teaching workshops at Yoga Malmo in Sweden!

 Get strong and centred through Standing Poses May 17 10am-1pm
This Forrest Yoga workshop focuses on becoming more embodied and alive through standing postures. The emphasis is on using Forrest Yoga sequencing and poses in order to connect more to your legs and a feeling of being grounded, vital and strong. Students are encouraged to be who they are and to connect directly to what they are honestly experiencing in order to bring about change. Authenticity, integrity and breath are the underlying pillars of this unique style. Get strong and centred through Standing Poses.


The emotional side of yoga May 17 2:30pm-5pm
The afternoon session consisting of a light asana practice, partner work and guided writing exercises to provide a verbal holding for the experience. The afternoon helps to deepen into what has been emerging in the morning. It is recommended to attend the morning session when attending the afternoon one.


Create Space through Backbends May 18 10am-1pm
This Forrest Yoga workshop focuses on creating space in the spine by using therapeutic backbends. The emphasis is on back bending safely in order to decompress the spine and create more space in between the vertebrae. A compressed spine is very much a sign of our times – both as a physical manifestation as well as an emotional occurrence. Most of us spend a lot of time sitting and in front of computers and we often have very little emotional space to simply be and reconnect to ourselves. The resulting disconnect from ourselves can leave us feeling isolated, unfulfilled and prone to addictive behaviour. Create space in your body in order to create space in your life, so that you can be more connected to who you are and simply be.

All levels are welcome for all workshops, but it is essential to bring an open mind!

Hip Hope: Forrest Yoga Intensive Class

How we walk through this world depends on what we are doing with those hips! Shakira once said "hips don't lie." There's truth to this. Our tightness, pain, hypermobility or imbalance in the pelvis often reflects how we support ourselves and live our lives. Let's delve into the hips, choose when to support and when to open as a metaphor for the rest of our lives!

Each Forrest Yoga Intensive class is designed and sequenced with a specific focus area in order to help move your practice to the next level. You will leave feeling cleansed, awake, and refreshed.

Believe it or not, feeling good (or awful) is intrinsically connected to your gut. This workshop is designed to get you connected to a place that’s often ignored — your belly! Focusing on the core — from the pelvis to the top of the head — we’ll pay special attention to the abdominals. You’ll learn techniques for strengthening and stretching out your core, massaging your internal organs and shifting the physical or metaphorical gunk that may be holding you back.

You’ll feel these benefits:
  • Feel strong from the inside out
  • Boost your self-esteem
  • Improve digestion
  • Detoxify your whole body
  • Strengthen your core

There’ll be time for a short Q&A during the session, where we can cover nutrition and best-practices for eating, as well as any questions about the physical practice.

Practitioners of all levels are welcome. The workshop isn’t suitable for pregnant ladies, but those who are 6 weeks+ post-natal are very welcome.

Price: £25 per person

As part of nature we are a changing system within other changing systems. Deeply interconnected, we — and the world around us — are never static. We are in constant transition.

At The Big Web Yoga Weekend Conference, we'll explore those ever-changing connections: How we relate to ourselves, to others and our surroundings. We'll also investigate the dance of interdependence between each of these — the interplay between the environment and us. Through Forrest Yoga workshops and a range of exceptional seminars, at The Big Web, we'll explore our own power. We will deepen our understanding of our responsibility to, and limitations within, a world in constant flux.

•    Learn how to simply be and connect to your own truth.
•    Get curious about around what holds you back, physically and emotionally.
•    Explore your own balance by attuning to the natural synthesis of life.
•    Be inspired to weave your own contribution into the global web.

Get excited by change!

Tickets for The Big Web Yoga Weekend Conference are available here!

Forrest Yoga Symposium Hamptons Edition in New York
Featuring , Forrest Yoga
 
This will be a very special weekend with the Forrest Yoga Symposium team. Join Erica, Leslie Pearlman, Denise Hopkins, and Kirsten Collins for some summer fun near the ocean. The intent for the weekend will be about bringing more pleasure, delight and fun into your life.  What better time and place for this?

Friday August 1: 6:00-8:30pm  
"Digging for Pleasure"

Friday night will begin with calling in the 4 Directions to help set the intention.  After that, we will take to our mats to explore pleasure in lots of forms.  Feeling pleasure takes a willingness to let go of old guilt, comparisons and self criticisms - the stuff that keeps us stuck.  Through deep twists and hip opening poses, we will work through the initial layers of tension and emotions that block us from feeling more liberated. The result? Your legs will feel stronger, your feet more grounded, making pleasure in your body easier to access. This special class will be taught by Erica, Denise, Kirsten & Leslie.

Saturday August 2:  9:00-11:30am
"Tapping into Delight"

What do you do when you're excited to see someone?  Throw your arms out!  What do you do when you're running through a field for an embrace (at least in the movies!)? Throw your arms out!  When you're enthused about something, your chest lifts - that's the language of the body.  Tap into your capacity for delight by teaching your back to bend and your chest to lift.  Kirsten and Erica will charm you into learning to do this.  It will be - what else? - a complete delight.

Sunday August 3: 9:00-11:30am
"Fun with Flight"

Inversions and arm balancing poses are challenging and exciting. They rejuvenate the mind and body. They increase circulation of blood, oxygen, and energy, stimulating the endocrine and immune systems. More importantly, they offer an opportunity to defy all the things that weigh us down.  Denise & Leslie will help you learn the essential elements of these powerful poses in a way that will dissolve fear and create hopeful and playful space! Learn the skills of balance and then have fun applying them to your life.

The event will be at Good Ground Yoga. For more information click here

Illovo, Johannesburg

Workshop: Join Alana for a dynamic hip opening and back bending all-levels Forrest Yoga class. In “Long Live the King!” we will breakdown King Pigeon pose in a way that you will be able to begin to feel the pose more fully in your body. We will work into poses such as sleeping pigeon, twisting pigeon, flying pigeon and tangled pigeon. In this workshop Alana will get you deeply warmed up with a hip opening sequence and safely work you up to feeling King Pigeon in your own body.

About Alana: In 2006 Alana started practicing Forrest Yoga intensely and eventually went on to complete the Forrest Yoga Foundation Teacher Training Course in 2007. She later completed the Advanced Forrest Teacher Training in 2010 and is currently enrolled in a yearlong Forrest Yoga Mentorship with Heidi Sormaz, owner of Fresh Yoga in New Haven, CT. Forrest Yoga's strong focus on the connection between body, breath and consciousness has not only allowed Alana to work deeply in her own body, but has provided her with a solid foundation as a teacher to help guide her students in their own practice. Students have described her Forrest classes as challenging and fun! She does her best to create an environment that plays by the yogic rules of mindful breathing, alignment and non-harming to the body that allows her students to shift not only physically but mentally at their own pace.

Weekend of Workshops with Sinhee McCabe in Indonesia
Featuring , Forrest Yoga
Looking for ways to heal your mind and body through yoga?

In these workshop, Sinhee will guide you to learn about yourself, what are your strong parts and what are your areas for improvement when it comes to mind and body.

August 23

9:00am-12:00pm Morning Intensive Class: Revitalizing the Spine (Back Bend)
This class is focused on the Forrest Yoga method of creating space in the spine and decompress the lower back in back bend poses. We will also learn how to engage back muscles to open up the chest, diaphragm and abdominal muscles easily in deep back bend poses. Learning to practice this way will deliver fresh blood and oxygen to the spine and realign the whole back muscles to vitalize the spine.

1:30pm - 4:00pm: Afternoon Session
The afternoon session will be on collaborating Forrest Yoga poses into the current Fitness First yoga sequences to include fun, energetic elements and how to introduce progression for everyone in your class. We will breakdown two 60-munute classes and one 90-minute class. We will teach you how to get to the targeted poses like hip opening and inversions, back bend, twists and arm balances by sequencing poses to warm up and cool down to release.

August 24

9:00am-12:00pm Morning Intensive: Connecting the Inner Line of Energy (Neck, Shoulders, and Hips)

This fun class is designed to let you experience inspiring Forrest Yoa poses like inversions, arm balances, and deep hip openings. You will learn how to use your core muscles efficiently and how to sustain the joints and muscles of your inner lines energetically with deep breathing.

1:30pm - 4:00pm: Afternoon Session
This is a tutorial session of learning Forrest Yoga hands on. You will learn basic skills of touching people with clear energy. This is about guiding each practitioner to learn their own rate of release instead of pushing or forcing a pose. We will also learn to use the connecting line of inner body energy to guide practitioners to deepen a pose. 

There is also a Master Class on August 22 (exclusive for Fitness First members)
Balancing the Core: This class will focus on how to use core muscles to support the whole body in poses. Forrest Yoga's therapeutic approach is to create space in the spine, release habitual internal tensions to connect your core muscles to function in an optimal way. There will be fun arm balances and twists for a strong and flexible core!

Workshops are hosted by Fitness First Indonesia. For more information click here.

Heels Over Head: Forrest Yoga Inversion Intensive in Brooklyn, NY
Featuring , Forrest Yoga
In this 2.5 hour practice, we will build strength and intelligence in the key muscles used in inversions. Inversions often bring up fear.  The possibility of falling or failing is scary.

Suddenly what seemed risky becomes exhilarating!

This class is open to students of all levels.  Beginners will be given poses to help build strength in order to one day go into handstand and forearm balance.  Advanced students will have the opportunity to work away from the wall.

The training includes chanting, pranayama, intensive yoga practice, working with injuries, addressing the needs and challenges of students, mentoring your own practice and needs, and learning the principles of class sequencing for advanced poses. You will also be taught how to work with students at different levels and abilities and with different body types.

Workshops with Sandra Heider in Hamburg Germany
Featuring , Forrest Yoga
Bikram Yoga Studio Hamburg Your Yoga
Eppendorfer Landstraße 104 (rear courtyard)
Hamburg
+49 (0)40 46774618
Sandra Heidier - the only Forrest Yoga Mentor Guardian in Europe - will be doing a series of workshops in Hamburg September 26 - September 28


Hands and Feet Connection with the Earth:
Friday September 26 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

This workshop invites you to slow down, to breathe deeper and to feel the body.

Physically, this workshop concentrates primarly on standing positions and secondly on inversions with the aim to feel the hands and feet and to keep in the contact with the earth. Mentally and emotionally, you will learn to be present and to be in the moment. That will help you to find inner peace and to be more grounded.

Hips: joy, passion and emotions
Saturday September 27. Part 1 1:00pm - 3:30 pm  Part 2 4:30 - 7:00pm

The first part of this workshop is focused on hip openers - to set free the energy in the hips. The intention is to let go, let flow the emotions and to rediscover joy and passion. With the help of intentional Forrest Yoga sequencing, the energy blocks in the hips will be released.

The second part of this workshop will focus on exploring sensuality, joy and passion. You will have the chance to ask questions in order to understand Forrest Yoga from the cognitive side. There will be a simple asana practice to help get emotionally deeper into it.

These two workshop build on each other. We recommend you to take both parts. This is an excellent workshop for couples.

The Jawbone: Express your personal truth
Sunday September 28 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

This workshop will focus on relaxation of the neck and jawbone, which is a "basic move“ in Forrest Yoga. Both the neck and jawbone are related to the expression of our personal truth, which is sometimes challenging for us. Backward bends are used to open the chest, throat, and jawbone. This evolves the courage to express what is important to us and what our heart says. We will also use sounds, to loosen enegy blocks.


All of these workshops are physically intensive, but beginners with some yoga experience, and a willingness to work, are welcome.

Workshops with Sandra Heider in Vienna
Featuring , Forrest Yoga
bYOGA
Beatrixgasse 28
Vienna
+43 66 4837 2209

Sandra will be teaching three Forrest Yoga workshops in Vienna.

The themes for these workshops are:

Making The Unconscious Conscious - part 1
This workshop focuses on hip openers and inversions in order to explore ourselves further and to deepen into who we are. The emphasis is on what is happening in the moment, what is moving to the foreground and what is opening up. The workshop invites you to develop curiosity, so that you can feel what is happening physically and emotionally in every moment. 

Making The Unconscious Conscious - part 2
In the afternoon we’ll explore the theme of “Making the Unconscious Conscious” through partner and movement exercises, a light asana practice and guided writing. Please bring pen and paper and wear yoga clothing. To get the most out of the workshop and to have a more meaningful experience, we recommend to attend the morning in order to participate in the afternoon. 

Metamorphosis Through Forrest Yoga. 
This workshop stresses the transformational power of Forrest Yoga. We can only transform ourselves if we wholeheartedly accept who we are. The paradox of change states that we can’t become somebody else, but we can become more fully who we are and be more fully invested in our current situation instead of wishing for things to be different continuously. Transformation and change naturally come out of this state of acceptance. The physical focus lies on standing poses and inversion.

The Yoga Diaries Book Launch Party in San Francisco
Featuring , Forrest Yoga
Yoga Tree San Francisco - Potrero
1500 16th St.
San Francisco, California 94103 United States
(415) 655-3936
Come to the book signing and launch of The Yoga Diaries; Stories of Transformation Through Yoga

Edited by Jeannie Page, The Yoga Diaries features stories from a few Forrest Yogis, including Guardian Teacher Colleen Millen.

"Yoga is a practice of the mind, body, and spirit. It is a practice that has the power to change, heal, and transform us. Many of us who have chosen to walk the yogic path already know this. We know this because we have not only experienced our own powerful transformations, but we have also seen dramatic, and at times even miraculous, metamorphoses of the souls that walk beside us on this path. The Yoga Diaries is a powerful collection of these stories of transformation through yoga: stories of physical and emotional healing; stories of overcoming great adversity and often finding one’s true purpose; stories of breath-taking, alchemical soul transformations and spiritual healing; stories from beautiful hearts and souls from all over the globe. The inspiring stories of the brave yogis within these pages will convince you that yoga is a practice for anyone ... for everyone."

As part of the event, Colleen will be reading a portion of her story called "Enter the Lion" about her first experience meeting Ana Forrest.

Other Forrest Yoga teachers whose stories are included in this book are Bridget Boland, Rebecca Butler, and Amber Shumake. Ana Forrest herself has given a quote for the book too.

The evening will start with a yoga class and move to book readings, a Q&A, and signings.

Donations are appreciated.

This event will be at Yoga Tree Protrero in San Francisco

Feel your Power, part 1
Sat March 7 13:30-16:30
This 3-hour Forrest Yoga workshop invites you to embrace all parts of yourself and be empowered by inhabiting every cell in your body. The focus is on connecting to your body's wisdom without judgment and exploring your own strength. You will be guided through a strong and intense asana practice centering on hip openers and inversions to connect to your core – your true power source.

Feel your Power, part 2
Sat March 7 17:00-19:00
In this 2-hour session, we’ll start with Q&A where you have the opportunity to ask questions regarding Forrest Yoga and your own yoga practice. We’ll then move into an asana practice and partner work with the aim to feel your own physical power. You’ll learn some basic assists in order to explore what it is like to feel yourself not just on your own, but also in relation to others.

Breath and Embody
Sun March 8 13:30-15:00
The intent of this 90-minute asana practice is to breathe deeply and explore the sensation of the breath. We’ll use the focus on the breath as a vehicle to be more in our own skin – in other words to be more embodied. Healing can only come out of a state of embodiment and presence. Without it no real change and transformation can occur. Physically, we’ll dive deeper into the pelvis with some strong hip openers. Expect to travel into the mystery of the body!

Erica Mather will be in the Chicago area offering a weekend of beautiful workshops.

Soothe Your Heart Friday March 27 6:30 - 9pm
One of the greatest pieces of Forrest Yoga is the way that we learn to heal ourselves.
Our hearts take a lot of wear and tear, and keeping it healthy is crucial to our ability to grow and thrive. As it says in the Alchemist, "if you stop listening to your heart, it will stop talking to you."

In this back bending workshop, we will explore accessible, all-levels, wrist-and-shoulder-friendly, soothing ways of opening your heart. It will change the way you feel about backbending. And, when you soothe your heart, it’s more likely to speak up.


Forrest Core Galore! Saturday March 28 11am - 1:30pm
It's what Forrest Yoga has gained its fame--oh, those abs!
But, there's so much more to Forrest core work.

Here in this backbending class we will cover all the ways that Forrest Yoga tackles building core strength and health continuously throughout a class: in addition to the abdominals, kriyas, bandhas, and "the roll." You will leave feeling connected and clear in a new and refreshing way!


Hip Service Saturday March 28 2:30pm - 5pm
Sometimes your hips need a tune-up, like your car. In this "restorative" Forrest Yoga class we'll take your hip joint through a vast range of motion to get them mobile, limber, and lubricated.


Gravity Surfing: An Advanced Forrest Yoga Workshop Sunday March 29 11am - 1:30pm
Gravity--we experience it every day without really realizing it. It pulls on our bodies, and anchors us to the ground. In this inversions and arm balance workshop, we'll explore playing with gravity as a force to ride and play within, surfing with breath.

Workshop Series in Berlin with Sandra Heider
Featuring , Forrest Yoga
Yoga Voice Berlin
Herbergerweg 14
Berlin
01578-678942
Weaving the Web Part 1 April 25 9:30am - 12:30 pm
This workshop includes calling the four directions to set the intent and chanting as a form of breathing exercise. The asana practice that follows focuses on backbends to open up the front of the body to become less armoured and more able to connect authentically. Weaving the web to create community is one of the central themes in Forrest Yoga, because only through community can we truly heal. Even though a lot of pain and trauma is created through relationship, it's also the source for our healing.

Weaving the Web Part 2 April 25  2:00 - 4:00pm
Continuing with the morning theme, the intent is to create community in order to create a support system in which we can let go. Only if we feel supported and experience trust, can we let go into the unknown and into the uncertainty of life. Yoga does not help us to remove the uncertainty, but it teaches us to be at peace with it. The session includes pranayama, Q&A, asana practice, partner exercises where we have the opportunity to feel supported, which might be an experience we rarely had when we grew up. The session is closed with a talking circle where everyone is invited to share experiences and connect authentically.

Let Go into the Unknown April 26  9:30am - 12:30 pm
This workshop explores the support we get from the Earth and includes calling the four directions, chanting, asana practice and meditation. When we ground down and experience the stability that is underneath our feet, we have a much better chance to relax and be at ease with the uncertainty of life. we can control life only to a certain extent and holding on to the belief that we can control everything will cause us a lot of anxiety and fear. Standing Poses and Inversions are used to explore the connection to the ground aiding the process of rooting down in order to live life more fully.

Healing Yoga Circle: A Weekend Forrest Yoga Series
Featuring , Forrest Yoga
Each practice begins with what we call in Forrest Yoga “calling in the four directions,” a short ceremony/meditation based on the Four Directions of Native American spirituality, a concept that is ancient and reflected in practices such as Feng Shui, tarot, shamanism, astrology, Traditional Chinese Medicine, I Ching, paganism, etc. By calling in the four directions and sitting in circle, we align with ancient and powerful archetypes and connect our own story to the larger story of humanity and the global shift we are  experiencing and co-creating at this time.

We then move through pranayama and a series of warm ups designed to prepare the body for the deeper postures. We slowly and mindfully open the major joints (spine, hips, shoulders), warm up the core, and perform heating flowing yoga series like Sun Salutations or Surya Namaskar “B” series. Then we dive in through a well-sequenced series of poses that will bring you to your edge and take you deep inside. The series culminates in an apex pose followed by a sweet savasana. Each Healing Yoga Circle is limited to 10 participants to ensure individual attention and appropriate modifications for all.

Location: Reflections Center for Conscious Living & Yoga
Address: 227 E. 24th St. (between 2nd & 3rd Aves.), New York City, NY

Curious about Forrest Yoga? Join Abby for a 2-Hour practice to delve deeper into this fiery style of yoga. This workshop will focus on the Forrest Yoga methodology behind hip opening- how to utilize the foundational principles of Forrest Yoga to deliberately, safely, and joyously move into the hips.

Expect to explore familiar shapes like figure four and pigeon, and some deeper openers like lotus, foot-behind-the-head (eka pada sirsasana), and some playful arm balances. Also, Abby will utilize her background as a massage therapist to share some knowledge of anatomy - what major muscles & muscle groups we'll be working on opening & strengthening.

Bring yourself and a willingness to dive into deep opening in the physical and energetic body. This class is for practitioners familiar with yoga - experience in Forrest is recommended but not necessary!

It's giving and getting all at once without all the grasping and straining.  The circle continues and support is everywhere. Over time, the practice of gratitude turns effort into grace. Learn to bring the very feeling of of living well into your cell tissues to manifest the essence of positivity in all facets of your life. This is not just some new-agey speech. You will hone the very skill of using feelings to develop intelligence so as to create opportunities and space in both practice and life. More than just enjoying a sumptuous week in the South of France with amazing cuisine and personalized luxury, this retreat is about planting the seeds of a beautiful life, ripping out the weeds at their roots, and growing from the good essence of your Spirit. Grace, above all, is connection to Spirit, to the best and most creative and strongest and softest part of you. You will explore how the acts of asana and gratitude may create a state of grace, and how that state of grace is truly a reservoir into which you can dip your cup long after your retreat has ended.

This retreat represents the second annual collaboration between Forrest Yoga Guardian Erica Mather, and Benjamin Sears, founder of LUXYOGA. Join them for a special blend of therapeutically crafted Vinyasa classes, deeply healing Forrest Yoga, Pranayama, and intention setting practices. Expect to be challenged in a safe space by teachers who care more about you than the poses but also love to get sweaty and deep. Kindred Spirits, unite in the South of France!

Turn your mind into an ally in a week of workshops that blends Forrest Yoga, Yin Yoga, and mindfulness meditation. Heidi Sormaz encourages you to work with your mind as specifically as you work with your body, helping you break the habits that keep you stuck in your body and your life.

    Mindfulness techniques for getting clear
    Accepting what is
    Cultivating compassion.

Heidi teaches you to take those practice principles into three different environments: sitting meditation, Yin Yoga, and yang yoga (Forrest Yoga). These yogi-mind principles build on each other throughout the week, resulting in optimal progress, contentment, and aliveness.

This will be for all levels.

Our bodies, relationships, societies, and politics: Everything is constantly undergoing transformational change. That’s why the concept of transformation is so important to us. We want to raise awareness for transformation processes. We want to become active and take action; we want to shape transformation. We want to connect the individual with the collective, the macro with the micro, responsible actions with a good feeling. Partial solutions are not enough. Forever Now stands for a holistic approach – because the new is brought forth exactly where parts of the whole meet.

Forever Now sees this festival as a type of a laboratory. For a few days, we will stage a gathering of curious, inspired people, offering visitors yoga classes, meditation, keynote presentations, workshops, and concerts.

Guardian Erica Mather will be at Kali Yoga for a weekend of Workshops in Washington DC. 

Forrest Yoga is inspiring yoga method that encourages you to dive into the magic and truth of your existence. Come Explore and Play at these following workshops: 

Mine Your Depths: A Hip Opening Workshop 
Friday, September 18th | 6-8:30pm

Your hips connect your legs to your core, and your legs stand on the ground, keeping you “grounded.” When the hips are locked or clogged, it inhibits your ability to connect with the depths of your first and second chakras, cuts you off from the deep wisdom and creative energy that lies there, and also disconnects you from the earth.  In this workshop we will unlock the hips and mine their depths. 

Amp up your Energy; A FY Backbend Workshop 
Saturday, September 19th | 10:00am-12:30pm

In backbends you are deliberately exploring the unknown, arching back into the mysteries of your own experience. Backbends are exhilarating, uplifting, and absolutely different than our normal way of being. They run a different amperage through the nervous system, begin to resonate you at higher frequency, and rev-up your energy! In this workshop, you will learn Forrest methods of heating the body, opening it, and backbending deeply with ease and safety. 


Delight Your Spirit; A FY Inversions and Arm Balances Workshop
Sunday, September 20th | 10:00am-12:30pm

Your spirit thrives on beauty, challenge, and truth. Forrest Yoga is an inspiring method that teaches us how to access our spirits and to feed it these things and more. Inversions and arm balances are challenging and exciting, rejuvenating the mind and body while increasing circulation of blood, oxygen, and energy, and, stimulating the endocrine and immune systems. Additionally, both arm balancing poses and inversions develop mental and physical strength, balance and flexibility. In this workshop, you will learn essential Forrest elements of these powerful poses.


All workshops are  open to  all levels of practitioners

For most of us, our energy gets caught up or stuck on things that move us further away from what we really want. For example; worrying about things you have no power to change, fighting a battle that isn’t worth your effort, spreading your energy too thinly across too many things.

It’s so easy to get distracted from your dreams, ambitions, passions, healing, transformation…So, how do you stay on track? How do you use your energy each day in a way that helps you to buildthe life you most desire?

In this day-long workshop Sandra Robinson and Charlotte Speller will take you on a ourney of discovery with intent. You’ll use Forrest Yoga and other therapeutic techniques for feeling your own energy, understanding it, and then freeing it up for it’s most positively charged use.

    The afternoon sessions encompass 5-hour sessions of training and instruction. Using skill-building exercises, trainees will work with the essential elements of teaching, such as: class sequencing, explore optimal personal nutrition, work with sadhanas (spiritual exercises), learn about personal and professional ethics, effective pose sequencing, the use of safe and effective hands-on adjustments, and effective clear, concise and powerful communication, eliminating habitual phrases, and tone of voice as well as the continued development of a more charismatic presence and honesty in your class.

   Eligible Participants:

    Teachers aspiring to improve their teaching and personal practice and those that are ready to move deeper within themselves and increase the mental acuity needed to explore the rich tapestry of Forrest Yoga. A minimum number of years of teaching experience is not required. We expect you to have the willingness, health and strength to commit to 100% of this teacher training.

In trauma recovery, it's important to engage in practices that keep us in present time and help us develop an ability to feel and deal with our sensoral and emotional experiences. When we learn how to use mindfulness to relate to our trauma wiring, we can learn how to be more present and embodied.

This is a four class series - October 8, 15, 22, 29 7:30-9pm - no drop-ins available.

Each class will start with somatic psychology practices and psycho education about the experience of trauma. Then, we'll move onto a Forrest Yoga inspired asana practice geared toward building the ability, at the pace you can tolerate, to feel and deal with your experience on the mat.

Prerequisites: Previous yoga experience required. Relationship with mental health professional strongly recommended.

Join the Forrest Yoga Symposium team for a weekend focusing on the Formula for Change!

Forrest Yoga Formula for Change provides clear and effective tools for embracing healthy and effective shifts in your life—such as working through the end of a relationship, or contemplating a new job.

Created by Ana Forrest, Forrest Yoga uses deep breathing and vigorous sequencing to connect feelings to the body, engage the core, and build strength. It’s designed to help you build a deeper connection to gut instinct, to reset rather than run away, and to open the heart with courage and grace.

Guided by experienced Forrest Yoga instructors, you experience the four-step transformational process of a Formula for Change through a blend of asana practice and pranayama exercises, Native American ceremony, chanting, meditation, and journal writing. You learn to:

    Notice when you are repeating unwanted behavior
    Pause and stop negative behavior
    Give yourself positive reinforcement for catching the behavior
    Move forward with different actions

Forrest Yoga Formula for Change helps you discover what needs to change in your life, and how to bring that change to fruition.

Ecstatic Re-birth - A Forrest Yoga Workshop in Two parts
Featuring , Forrest Yoga
The Phoenix was the most loved and cherished bird by the Sun Gods because of her loyal and sweet harmonies that would echo through the skies. They represent their loyalties to each other, as the Phoenix continues to build her nest that lights up into flames she rises from the ashes to repeat the same loyal activities again. The beauty of the Phoenix is that whatever she chooses to do, she is loved for as long as there is sunlight.


The first part of this workshop is an exhilarating Backbending Sequence

The back bending part of the workshop aims to educate and help you understand back bending / opening the front of the body and often stirring/releasing emotions. Anatomically you will learn how to do back bends in a new and improved way based on functional anatomy of thoracic extension, tucking the sit bones, core stability and shoulder mobility. Find out what makes these areas feel congested, why they remain or return to congestion and how to free yourself from that state of mind.
---   If backbends worry you then this is the workshop for you. Forrest Yoga is mindful and aware of injury- Jambo will guide you with his excellent awareness and knowledge of anatomy and teaching skill.



The second part of this workshop is the Ceremony

After revealing our layers through yoga practice and in a state of awareness and mindfulness we will step into yoga ceremony and bury those parts of you that no longer serve you. If you have not had the opportunity to be part of a Forrest Yoga ceremony it is a very moving and powerful experience. Be ready to be part of this intensely earthy and grounded experience.

This particular sequence offers the opportunity for practitioners to practise self-enquiry and track where good information (medicine) comes from to re-educate re-birth the self.

A great way to spend Halloween

Dont Slay Your Dragon: A Weekend of Forrest Yoga Workshops

Lords Cricket Ground
London
02077249994
Saturday, November 28th, 1.30-4.30pm
DON’T SLAY YOUR DRAGON PART 1: THE ART OF NOT STRIVING SO MUCH

The dragon is a symbol of ancient knowledge, wisdom and connection to the elements. It is important that we are able to connect with our own dragon energy, our deeper knowing and understanding of the interconnectedness of being. But often this energy is severed because we strive so much and spend so much of our time living in our heads.
Through a strong and mindful Forrest Yoga sequence of pranayama, core work, standing poses and back bends, Sandra and Kristi will help you explore the feeling of working, fighting and struggling less. You will open your heart to the possibility of spending more time simply being rather than having to achieve in order to prove your self-worth, in your practice and ultimately in your life.

Sunday, November 29th, 1.30-4.30pm
DON’T SLAY YOUR DRAGON PART 2: THE ART OF EMBRACING YOUR MAGIC

The dragon is also a symbol of a magic we all carry inside of us. We rationalize our lives instead of tolerating the mystery that resides inside of us. To embrace our magic we need to stay in the space of “I don’t know” and develop the patience to wait.
Through a deep Forrest Yoga hip opening sequence, Sandra and Kristi will take you on a journey though the murkiness and into the mystery, where you will learn to create the space for things to unfold organically.

Join Guardian Sandra Robinson for a weekend of thought provoking and healing workshops in Hamburg, Germany.


Friday, 22.01.2016 - 20.15-22.00 (29 €)

Breathing deeply and turning off the mental cinema. - Focus: Standing poses

Learn to breathe deeply with Ujjayi, an extremely fine and flowing respiratory form which allows us to come to rest and turn off our mental cinema for a moment.

The Forrest Yoga sequences and positions will support you to find your center, and listen less to the outside. You experience the unfolding of your inner senses.

Saturday, 23.01.2015 - 19.00-21.00 (34 €)

Perfectionism and control. - Focus: neck and hips

Never being good enough and trying to make everything even better. Do you know that feeling? The feeling of having to constantly hold everything together often leads to not being truly yourself. You lose the feeling for yourself and strive for an ideal that does not really exist. Why do we limit ourselves so much, and what would happen if we were nicer and dealt more lovingly with ourselves? Saturday night gives space to this topic without hoping for a perfect answer. Focus is on the neck, hips and inversions.

Sunday, 24.01.2015 from 10.00-12.30 (39 €)

The curtain has fallen. - Focus: backbends and arm balances

We wear masks, we hide and we feel most vulnerable when we show ourselves the way we really are. This workshop will address the issue with backbends and arm balances to see how our bodies feel when we wear a mask and how it would feel if we take off the mask? What would that do for our relationships?

Monday, 25.01. 2015 20.15-22.00 (29 €)

Integration & digestion. - Focus: backbends and standing positions

We are looking for an experience after another, our life is very fast paced and we often don't pay attention to an ending because we are already focussing on the next thing. For the integration of an experience, it is important to take time to digest the situation and to integrate it into the body. This workshop gives room for integration and digestion for the body and spirit with the help of therapeutic backbends and standing positions.

All 4 FORREST YOGA WORKSHOPS total only 114 € instead of € 131.

Each workshop can be booked separately.

Cultivating Seeds of compassion
Saturday January 30,  11:00 - 15:00

There is a link between cultivating compassion and personal development and reducing inflammation in your blood stream. Inflammation is known as the cause of many modern day complaints. This workshop breaks down WHY a yoga practice helps you feel better!

Authenticity Breeds Gravitation 
Sunday January 31, 11:00-15:00

The hips don't lie! There is a lot of stored tension in the hips and pelvic area. These tensions are easily associated with expectations from society and our personal history. This workshop unlocks the psychological tensions stored in the anatomy of our hips. Expect to feel more space in your life.

When there is more space in the hips, stubbornness is relieved and there is room for growth. Expect to experiment with head to ankle and pigeon variations that will enable you to track deep hip opening that brings a new layer of joy into your life.


Both Classes area suitable for all Levels

Forrest Yoga sequences are created to serve the needs of modern day lifestyles including postural issues relating to sitting for long periods or the different ways that we move and the needs of our spirits. Explore the possibilities of the mysteries that you are!

"The Healing Power of Pleasure" in Washington D.C.
Featuring , Forrest Yoga
Pleasure is a responsibility and a choice. Practicing pleasure, from the Forrest Yoga perspective, is one of the most effective ways to create an internal environment that is resilient – one that helps you transform trauma and move forward on a spiritual path. In order to change our habits and our choices we need to be standing on a solid ground of full embodiment – this requires pleasure as a practice. In this workshop we spend the first 30 minutes explaining the way in which Forrest Yoga specifically teaches the embodiment and practice of pleasure followed by a full asana class (with a focus on backbending) designed to give students the opportunity to embody these principles.

Join Forrest Yoga Guardian Heidi Sormaz for these weekend workshops! Forrest Yoga Guardians are the highest level of Forrest Teachers in the world - hand picked and specially trained by Ana Forrest, the Guardians are charged with carrying on the legacy of Forrest Yoga, & training future Forrest Yoga Teachers. Heidi is one of only two Forrest Guardians currently teaching the Forrest Yoga Foundational 200-Hour Teacher Training! Heidi owns Fresh Yoga in New Haven, CT.

Yoga Voice Berlin
Herbergerweg 14
Berlin
+49 1578 6798942
April 23, Sat:10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Perfectionism and Control - Part I - Neck, Shoulders and Hips : 40 €

Perfectionism creates the feeling of never being good enough and of having to work harder and harder to become flawless. Ultimately the underlying belief is that we are not worthy and don’t deserve to be loved if we are not faultless. The true and authentic self is rejected, because it is “imperfect”. An ideal is created that we strive after, even though it does not exist. This creates a constant frustration and a relentless need to achieve. What would happen if we could truly accept ourselves the way we are instead of needing to be perfect? How would it feel in our bodies, if we treat ourselves in a more loving way? The workshop creates space for this question without hoping for perfect and absolute solutions or answers. The workshop explores the theme by using the four directions, chanting and a deep hip and shoulder/neck releasing class.

April 23 - Sat: 2:30 - 4:30 pm
Perfectionism and Control - Part II : 30 €

The afternoon includes some light asana and process work to feel deeper into the authentic self and create room where self acceptance might happen. We will delve deeper into the questions of what kinds of ideals we set ourselves, where did our ideas of these ideals originate from and what might we need to do to let go of these ideals and be able to accept who we are, where we are right now. This includes partner work, talking circle, and journaling.
This workshop is only open to those that also register for the morning workshop.

April 24 - Sun : 10:00 - 1:00 pm
Learning to Be with WHAT IS : 40 €

How would life be different if we can learn to be with WHAT IS - using our felt experience in our bodies and our breath to surf through WHAT IS with radical acceptance? This workshop will provide a very grounding practice with therapeutic backbends and a standing pose series, to integrate and digest the experiences from Saturday. This workshop will work with building moment-to-moment awareness within the body and using the breath to skillfully stay grounded in the experience, not seeking to change or alter the experience, but opening up and welcoming whatever comes up. This workshop will include setting the intent using the four directions, chanting and a grounding asana practice.

Workshop 1: Cultivating the Seeds for Compassion
April 23, 11h30 - 16h

There is a link between cultivating compassion and reducing inflammation in your blood stream, relationships and personal development. Inflammation is known as the cause of many modern day complaints. This workshop breaks down WHY a yoga practise helps you feel better.

There is a special Buddhist meditation, coupled with shamanic chanting and a sweaty yoga practise working on therapeutic back bends and elongating tension in the shoulders and neck.

Workshop 2: Authenticity Breeds Gravitation
April 24, 11h30 - 16h

The hips don’t lie! There is a lot of stored tension in the hips and pelvic area. These tensions are easily associated with expectations from society and our personal history. This workshop unlocks the psychological tensions stored in the anatomy of our hips.

Expect to feel more space in your life. When there is more space in the hips, stubbornness is relieved and there is room for growth. Expect to experiment with « head to ankle » and pigeon variations that will enable you to track deep hip opening that brings a new layer of joy into your life.

Workshop 1: Nourish Your Heart
Date: 27th May 2016 (Friday)
Time: 6:00pm - 8:30pm
Level: All Levels

With Forrest Yoga’s heart-opening asanas, you learn to breathe in a way that opens your core and gives the heart the support and counsel of the rest of the primary chakras. Learn to remove the emotional shielding from your heart so it can truly and honestly feel each new experience afresh. This helps your heart and Spirit be more resilient, flexible and adept at surfing emotional waves. Begin building skill in accessing, cleansing and resolving emotional issues and move them out of the cell tissue, thus freeing your heart. This makes room for seeing and absorbing the beauty and sweetness in our world, which nourishes the heart.

Workshop 2: Fascinate on the Mysteries of your Internal Wildness
Date: 28th May 2016 (Saturday)
Time: 9:00am - 11:30am
Level: All Levels

Forrest Yoga teaches you how to deepen your poses by relating in a fresh, intelligent way to your challenging edges. Learn how to relax your core and safely change fear into excitement by riding the power of breath. In this session you will learn a different way to relate to your ‘edges’ besides struggling and panicking. 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.

Workshop 3: Free Your Spine
Date: 28 May 2016 (Saturday)
Time: 2:00pm - 4:30pm
Level: All Levels

Experience the therapeutic benefits of a Forrest Yoga backbend class. Create profound and freeing changes through intelligent hand-on adjustments. Feel the sequencing of a safe class - including how to warm up and cool down for backbends to stay injury-free.

Workshop 4: Rewire your Brain to Live the Life You Deserve
Date: 29 May 2016 (Sunday)
Time: 9:00am - 11:30am
Level: All Levels

Does your practice brighten or dim your soul? Make the choice to brighten up and fascinate in process! Forrest Yoga teaches you to focus your intent on connecting to and romancing your soul. How? By choosing, in the moment, to breathe in a way that brightens you, and to do your poses in a way that invites your Spirit to permeate into all of your body. This welcomes your Spirit home.

Workshop 5: Inversions and Arm Balances
Date 29 May 2016 (Sunday)
Time: 2:00pm - 4:30pm
Level: All Levels

Inversions and arm balancing poses are challenging and exciting. They rejuvenate the mind and body. They increase circulation of blood, oxygen, and energy, stimulating the endocrine and immune systems. Both arm balancing poses and inversions develop mental and physical strength, balance and flexibility. In this session, learn the essential elements of these powerful poses. Learn the skills of balance and then have fun applying them to your life.

Workshop 6: Stalking Your Fear
Date: 30 May 2016 (Monday)
Time: 9:00am - 11:30am
Level: Advanced

How does fear affect you? Interested in learning how to change your relationship to fear? Fear is a powerful emotion that dictates our decisions and hinders us from making good choices. Fear can lead to anxiety, despair and depression. Forrest Yoga teaches you a different way to relate and work with fear. It teaches you to use fear as a warning call, to listen, be alert and proceed cautiously. Fear does not have to be something that paralyzes you. 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 immediately. 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. The bands that constrict your life force and contort your body begin to loosen. You will have room to breathe! When you treat your fearful parts with attention and compassion, you allow the ‘wonderful’ back into your life.

powerful emotion that dictates our decisions and hinders us from making good choices. Fear can lead to

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. The bands that constrict your life force and contort your body begin to loosen. You will have room to breathe!

Free Your Spine, Tame Your Back
Featuring , Forrest Yoga
In2Training
Unit 3
Farnham
Freeing your spine creates the feeling of a longer and more flexible back. The muscles that make up your back are often under or over used. This can cause incorrect use of these muscles in many of our movements in daily life and activities. As a result we move inefficiently which isn’t the best use of our energy.

Many back related symptoms are not due to the activity that created the issue rather daily habits of our movement. This workshop offers many techniques that you can use anywhere to correct your structure and free yourself from pain or congestion in life as well as in back bends.

This workshop focuses on the basic moves of Forrest Yoga that create more space in the upper, mid and lower back. We will explore how freeing up more space in these areas also promotes more energy and a stronger immune system.

Marvel in a nutshell! A yummy taster weekend of Forrest Yoga, Applied Anatomy, and Myo-Fascial Bodywork by Forrest Yoga Senior Guardian Brian Campbell.

Workshop Location
Dock 11
Kastanien Allee 79
10435 Berlin
Germany

Anatomy Wizzard Brian Campbell offers this weekend to all you inquisitive yoga practicioners and teachers, bodyworkers and healers out there who desire to attain the next level of marvel in your personal and professional practice.

The weekend's educational focus is on pelvic tilts & rotations

Everybody has a different type of pelvic tilt and rotation unique to their structure and personality. Becoming aware of the many complex variables that create each person's posture sensibilizes our skills in adressing a person's postural uniqueness.

These two days of comprehensive practicing and learning offer an advanced understanding of pelvic tilts and rotations, how to visually “see” postural specifics and differences, and how to address them through Forrest Yoga and Myo-Fascial Release Bodywork.

Atelier 1 – Etablir les fondements de la confiance en soi
Cet atelier vise à maîtriser la deuxième étape du cheminement entamé lors des ateliers précédents: pratiquer avec motivation, enthousiasme et durabilité. Attendez-vous à revoir les postures de base apprises pendant les 20 premières heures de pratique ainsi qu’à découvrir certaines méthodes inédites proposées par Jambo pour les réaliser. Nous explorerons ensuite les inversions et équilibres sur les bras du niveau suivant, qui viendront s’ajouter à votre répertoire de postures et d’enchaînements efficaces.

Atelier 2 – Créer de l’espace pour respirer plus librement et guérir naturellement
Lorsque nous pratiquons les équilibres sur les bras et les inversions avec une intensité accrue, nous appliquons sur nos épaules une charge semblable à celle que soutiennent nos articulations des hanches dans la position debout. Ajoutez à cela l’effet de la gravité et cette sensation peut devenir une d’écrasement.

How our Emotional Blockage expresses itself as posture and postural deviation.
How our Scar Tissue affects flexibility, even at a distance from an injury.

Visual: There will be richly illustrated lectures and physical demonstrations. 
Aural: We will have lively and intense question and answer interactions.

Forrest Yoga and Emotions - A Workshop with Sandra Robinson
Featuring , Forrest Yoga
Happy Ohm Yoga
Studio 1, 2nd floor Capitol House
Norwich
Forrest Yoga teaches us to track feelings and sensations through our bodies to live a more full and embodied life. Forrest Yoga Guradian and Body Psychotherapist Sandra Robinson is returning to Norwich (yay!) to teach us how to connect to our emotions and allow to be with what is.

10 -13:00 Forrest Yoga and Emotions: Explore your upper back, chest and shoulders

In Yoga the importance is placed on being present and with what is arising. In other words, the intention is to come to a place of peace where one can deeply accept the current situation. True healing and change can only come out of this state of being in the here and now. Often one tends to look for solutions, interpretations and advice too quickly instead of fully exploring and being with what is, thereby forgoing layers of understanding and healing.

This workshop uses a Forrest Yoga backbend sequence to dive into the mysteries of the upper back, chest and shoulders enabling the practitioner to feel more fully into those areas – letting images, sensations, feelings, memories and colours simply be there. Through deep sensing of those areas change naturally occurs.

13.00-14.00 Lunch

14.00 Forrest Yoga and Emotions: Learning to “be with”

This 2-hour afternoon workshop will start with some light asana and moves into exercises, including partner exercises, to experience what it means to be with oneself and others. Instead of fixing one’s own issues and somebody else’s, emphasis is placed on holding space for oneself and others in a non-judgemental and compassionate way. Feelings are regarded neither as negative or positive, but simply as energies that can move into different forms and that can bring vitality into the body.

Adventure to the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, at stunning Luna Lodge in the Osa Peninsula, for an illuminating week of ceremony, yoga, and nature immersion. Each day will begin with a traditional ceremony of drumming, chanting and journey –work, led by Jerusha Rone. She will then guide you through a 2 hour, (intent driven), Forrest yoga practice, all while receiving hands on assists and adjustments from Lana Smithner and Brittany Bares. Afternoon sessions will be led by Brittany or Lana and include a second asana practice, as well as talking circles, book talks, yoga nidra and nature immersions into the surrounding park and local beach.

After you have explored the rainforest, take a short walk to the beach to witness a breath-taking sunset set against the Pacific Ocean. We hope that the time you spend nurturing yourself in this sacred space will not only leave you feeling creative and connected, but will also give you the confidence and support to use these tools when you go back home!

- Internal flights from San Jose to the Osa Peninsula and transfer to Luna Lodge

"Embracing the Elements" Yoga Retreat in Mexico
Featuring , Forrest Yoga
Ready to step out of your daily grind and into a space where everything is taken care of for you?  Begin your new year with a uniquely grounding week on the beach in Mexico with Michelle Cordero, Forrest Yoga Guardian In Training.

On this retreat you will have ample opportunity to rest into the four elements (air, fire, water, earth): listen to the waves crashing on the shore; witness infinite beautiful beach horizon as far as the eye can see, experience two Forrest yoga practices a day to strengthen your body and delight your spirit; eat amazing fresh farm to table Mexican inspired cuisine three times daily; indulge in doing nothing; lounge in a hammock; swim in the ocean; soak up the sun or adventure in an offsite excursion. Michelle will weave the theme of healing with and embodying the elements into the yoga practice, as well as using yoga and intention to restore general health and wellbeing.

On Wednesday, the group will have the opportunity to partake in a private Temazcal (Mexican sweat lodge). This will be an optional opportunity to cleanse, create a vision and set goals for your life.

Our Retreat Center is located on the Pacific Coast of Mexico, nestled between the drama and beauty of the Sierra Madres and the sparkling waters of the Pacific Ocean, this unique location’s proximity to natural wonders provides easy access to a host of activities – from swimming to hiking to scuba diving to whale and bird watching, to horseback riding and so much more!

Enjoy the luxury of an environmentally-conscious resort, with EcoLuxury accommodations each with a beachfront view and just steps away from the breath-taking blue ocean! Fall asleep and awaken to the sound of the waves, here you will truly be one with The Elements!

In addition to twice daily Forrest Yoga with Michelle, we will also enjoy exquisite farm to table meals, and the opportunity to become immersed in nature. Optional activities also include volunteering in the turtle sanctuary and giving back to the local community if that is something that calls to you! Whales and Dolphins are known to frequent this private beach in February, we will also have the opportunity to partake in baby turtle releases!

Forrest Yoga Masterclass: The Healing Powers Of Pleasure
As we evolve with our yoga practice and yoga industry, there is a large emphasis on showing your emotions, particularly vulnerability. What has happened in that evolution of our practice is that we may feel that we have to be vulnerable in order to be accepted. When working with pleasure we bring joy back into our personal growth, with regular injections of pleasure, working with emotions such as vulnerability or anxiety become more manageable. The focus of this workshop will address hip openers and inversions. This dynamic combination of movement patterns brings exhilaration into our cell tissue, thereby fueling is with the goodness that we need to deal with many things in life.

Saturday, 11.2.2016: 10:00 - 12:30
The Hips Don't Lie
Our hips are the closest anatomical connection to the health of our nervous system when it comes to body language and our response to stress. This hip opening class is designed to support your work in managing stress, anxiety and other tensions that you store in your hips. Expect poses that will educate the practitioner in the many different directions that the hips open in and how we can breathe in a way that enables us to easier change our reactions and turn them into responses.

Saturday, 11.2.2016: 14:00 - 16:30
Anatomy of Hips *
(* this workshop should be booked as a set with the morning practice because the afternoon isn't that great without the morning practice)

This overview of hip opening poses discusses the functional anatomy of hip opening poses through muscles testing, hands on assists, bodywork and re-assessing the difference that these  manipulations make. We will be working with the anatomy of pigeon, head to ankle and splits.

Sunday, 12.2.2016: 10:00 - 12:30
Kindness is the New Black: Therapeutic Back Bends

Did you know that the one of the secrets to health, wealth & happiness is kindness? Did you know that most spiritual teachers eventually end up saying that it was kindness that was needed after all? This workshop is a space for us to be kind to ourselves & to each other. This method of practicing informs our personal growth in our poses and personal development as well as propagates our growth as a community. We will be exploring new ways of practicing poses that open the chest and shoulders in a seminar format and then putting that information experientially into our sequence.

Winter Renewal: Unraveling the Mysteries of the Neck, Shoulders & Hips with Forrest Yoga
Featuring , Forrest Yoga
Yoga Nanda
55 Hilton Avenue
New York
Yoga Nanda in Garden City

Neck, shoulder and back pain is epidemic in our society.  No wonder- we spend countless hours typing on a computer, texting, sitting behind a desk, cooking, carrying children, lifting heavy objects and hunched over.  In this workshop we will dive into the mysteries of the neck shoulders and hips- chronic dumping grounds for stress, tension and pain - and learn how to counteract the damage we do every day.  You will learn to use your breath to intelligently let go of holding patterns.  You will learn to strengthen the stabilizing muscles in your neck, shoulders, upper back and hips to reduce pain and tightness.  You will learn to make new neurological connections to help change patterns and habits that contribute to tension and stress.  And more importantly, you will learn that we have the capacity to change and feel great!

Compassion – the concern for the misfortune and suffering of others – is a word with deep meaning that has intense power when we put into practice. But how do we practice self-compassion?

In this Forrest Yoga workshop, join Forrest Yoga Guardian-in-Training Darin and Cindee as they help you connect breath to heart to spirit. Work with integrity to learn how to offer true kindness to yourself and to give yourself space to just be present.

Functional Anatomy for Yoga Teachers with Jambo Truong
Featuring , Forrest Yoga
Hot Power Yoga
London
07 872 122 842
As a yoga teacher an understanding of functional anatomy is critical to being able to identify weak and under-functioning muscles and which yoga poses to use to engage them, build strength and flexibility.

This 2 day experiential learning course focuses on the 12 structural muscles that protect the spine and hold the skeleton in place.

These structural muscles are underused in our modern day living and under-worked in most of our physical activity, yet have a huge relationship to the nervous system and functional movement.

By gaining a full understanding of anatomy you will be better placed to support your students and grow their practice.

Understand what these key muscles do, how they interact, and how pain and injury can result when they’re not functioning properly

In yourself and with partners, identify, examine and test these key muscles for function or weakness

Experience using these muscles in poses - Learn how to activate them and improve their flexibility through yoga

Experience how to integrate cues to activate the muscles in to your yoga teaching

Deepen Your Teaching Practice
Featuring , Forrest Yoga
North Devon Yoga
Tarka Clinic, Paiges Lane
Barnstaple
This weekend program will equip you with the necessary skills and understanding to go deeper. At this stage of your teaching journey you will lead a class and then together we will explore further, with feedback that will break through the very personal conditioning that we all hold on to, but which would otherwise obstruct your growth as a teacher. Therapeutic and informative, this shared and safe space will enable all participants to see your students and your role as a facilitator of yoga in an entirely new light.
Become more than a yoga teacher; be the yogi that enables you to live and teach authentically; to know that you are enough as you are and able to recognise your own brilliance.
As part of the session we will record the class, play it back and show how this way of presenting feedback can help us to see our own blind spots. You will learn further, progressive hands on techniques as the session unfolds, based on your individual questions and needs.
