Forrest Yoga is renowned as a powerfully physical, internally-focused practice that emphasizes how to carry a transformative experience off the mat and into daily life.
For more than four decades, Ana Forrest has been bringing her particular brand of Fierce Medicine to the Yoga world. An internationally-recognized pioneer in Yoga and emotional healing, Ana created Forrest Yoga while working through healing from her own life’s trauma and experience.
Ana weaves Native American Ceremony into her classes and workshops, calling on the forces that helped her heal from an abusive and challenging childhood.
Jose Calarco, her co-director of Forrest Yoga, also comes from a long history with Shamanism and healing – just in a different sphere – that of music and the performing arts. Jose brings his decades of experience in musical direction to the Forrest Yoga workshops and classes.
Each workshop begins with a short, yet very special Ceremony of song, invocation and smoke blessing. Ana and Medicine Man, Jose Calarco set the intent for the practice and honor the ancestors and custodians of our sacred land.
1. Ancestral Voices
The Ancestral Voices Yoga Workshop includes a musical blessing and a juicy Forrest Yoga sequence taught by Ana and Jose. These session will connect you to the Beauty and ancient traditions of the First Peoples of this planet. From there, you access a deeper understanding of yourself, a connection to your own Spirit and to the Great Mystery.
Yelli Yelli: The Cosmic Serpent
The meaning of the Cosmic Serpent song and the theme for this class is: Shedding of the old skin and uncovering the star sparkle underneath.
2. Luminous Core
Forrest Yoga takes you on a physical and mental journey deep into the core of your own being. You will create a heightened sense of awareness through breath and asanas, and open to the amazing quality of feeling that lives inside of you. Use Forrest Yoga to connect to your core, shed what is no longer useful, keep what is of value and ‘with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.” Challenge and move your core energy into those areas where it has yet to be. Come sweat, breathe deeply and enter the incrediblee mystery of your core. You will feel cleansed, refreshed and alive.
