Forrest Yoga is a powerful and life changing practice created by Ana Forrest.
We learn how to relieve tension by relaxing our neck in most poses to soften upper back and shoulder tightness.
We emphasize connecting to earth with active feet to help strengthen and support knee health.
Classes are either un-cooled or heated to 80-degrees to help warm the muscles for a safe stretch.
Each class is fresh and different. We might choose to design a sequence for backbends, twists, inversion, etc., or work towards a specific pose such as Crow or Lotus, or some other theme that inspires.
We spend more time is our poses (5-8 breaths) to allow enough time for safe alignment and for fully experiencing the pose.
Most classes are All Levels. We always offer modifications for newer students or those working with injuries, as well as up-levels for more experienced students.
We offer hands-on assists (optional) in poses that will help you open and go deeper into the heart of the pose.
Class Packages may be purchased online or at the studio. Check for special offers, or contact us if you need help choosing the best deal for your needs.
Please reserve your space for all classes by email or text message (members will be given a number for the texting option).
Arrive at least 5 minutes early to sign in, gather your props, and settle in (and chat with your new yogi friends!).
Wear comfortable clothing that stretch, such as leggings or sweats, and t-shirts or tank tops. Leave shoes in the lobby.
Bring your own mat (we do have a few loaner mats if you don’t have one yet), and a water bottle.
Avoid eating 3-4 hours before a class. Pregnant students may have a small fruit or snack.
Please avoid using scented toiletries as these odors will be intensified by the heat of the practice. Some students are very sensitive to chemicals.
Tell the instructor about any ongoing injuries, pregnancy, or medical conditions before class.
There are no refunds (no exceptions) unless we cancel the class or workshop.
