Forrest Yoga is founded on Four Pillars of Forrest Yoga: Breath, to connect in feeling with one’s body and ignite passion for living; Strength through intense core sequences and long holds of poses that generate heat and heighten the senses; Integrity in working with the edges of one’s practice, particularly around physical and emotional injuries, developing tools to deal with fear and struggle; Spirit to create a sense of freedom and “courage to walk as your Spirit dictates."
Classes include highly creative sequencing and generally take on a sort of theme, often building toward a variety of peak poses. This means no two teachers or classes are ever alike and every week as a teacher and a student there is an opportunity to try something new.
Forrest yoga includes pranayama, meditation, chakras, sun salutations, standing and balancing poses, arm balances and inversions, twists and backbends and forward folds, and vinyasa. It also relies on a variety of props, wall postures, as well as partner poses and hands on assisting.
