Forrest Yoga Associate


About Madeline :
Madeline Hogan discovered yoga and its powerful impact when she began practising Iyengar yoga in Dublin in the 90’s. Her first impression was how she felt so calm and relaxed after class and used to sleep soundly those nights. This kept her motivated to keep on practising her twice weekly classes as she could feel the benefits in her body mind.

She took the decision to train as a Forrest Yoga teacher because what she read about Ana Forrest resonated with her. In September 2017 she completed her 200 hour Forrest Yoga Foundation Teacher Training in Berlin with Ana Forrest. She is currently continuing her training as a Forrest Yoga teacher by doing her year long mentorship program in 2018 with Sita Menon, one of the Forrest Yoga Guardians based in Berlin.

In Forrest Yoga she discovered a new depth to the healing power of yoga as well as the ability to connect to the Spirit through music and song. She found the classes to be challenging, transforming and magical and learned just how strong she is, physically and mentally. In class Ana asked them to ask themselves “What part of this can I do?” and she used this and her breathe to deal with the feeling of this was too much for her.

She enjoys challenging students in class but also provides a fun and laughter filled class. She focuses on breathing and the expansion of the breath to first of all ground the students, to get them into their bodies instead of being in their heads. Her passion for yoga comes through in her teaching and she encourages students to continue past their own limits and fears to discover their own limitlessness, both on and off the mat.
