Forrest Yoga

Forrest Yoga is written with double “R” and doesn’t have to do anything with trees or woods. Forrest Yoga is more than just plain Yoga poses. It encourages you to let go off everything that holds you back and walk through life in beauty. Forrest Yoga celebrates the Yoga practice with appreciation and is targeted to strengthen your spirit. It does not require strength or flexibility.

Forrest Yoga is a form of practice that uses effective and powerful physical poses which have been created to address today’s lifestyle physical ailments and lead away from poor postural habits. It is characterised by intense core work, precise instruction and hands on assists and is practiced in a heated room (around 27°C).

The creatrix of Forrest Yoga, Ana T. Forrest, developed this style of Yoga as she was working through her own healing. Therefore she steadily adapted traditional Yoga teachings which she combined with the wisdom of Native American Shamanism. After 40 years of existence, Forrest Yoga is still an intelligent and lively style of Yoga, open to new findings, knowledge, critique and impulses from outside.

Ana challenges her students to access their whole being and to use Forrest Yoga as a path to finding and then cleansing the emotional and mental blocks that dictate and limit their lives. Students cultivate an acute awareness of their own practice and life process, creating a unique and powerful opportunity for them to make practical life decisions based on their own experiences.
