About Forrest Yoga
FY is based on 5 pillars
You will be coached and encouraged to breathe in a very specific and deliberate way. This intelligent way of breathing brings in more aliveness to the poses, sequence and life.
There will be moments when you feel that you are holding poses for some time, with the correct coaching this will feel as though you are turning your muscles on & firing up your nervous system. This form of sequencing will make you feel 'switched on'.
Some of the intents will create a safe environment for you to explore the things that you may usually avoid or don't know how to explore. This meditative or reflective experience can often call upon the wisdom of your physical body to enable you to tap into a strength that you never knew existed.
With each session there is an intent. The practise encourages us all to practise with integrity...
'When we first come to yoga it's because we are concerned about how we feel, when we get into yoga we get concerned with how we look' Jambo
Your connection with the intent and the pose is more important than looking good enough to appear on the front cover of a yoga magazine!
It is far more important to move in a healing way and live in a growing way than it is to achieve a fancy pose. That actually comes, or it may not, but you will refine your relationship with yourself, your spirit and your world.
Medicine people believe that we are all luminous beings and that our work is to become more luminous. As we work on the areas of ourselves where we recognise... our pain, the areas we least love, respect or accept, we let go of the hooks to the breeding ground of certain behaviours and become lighter in weight and brighter in our expressions.
The practise Forrest Yoga encourages us to work in a way that entices our spirit to live inside this body.
Deeper The willingness to go deeper, whether that is in a pose or with a feeling, are steps that take us beyond our familiar expectations of ourselves. Those expectations are actually limitations, by working in a deeper way we dive further in to the Mystery of who we are, our potential and we maintain the fresh approach of an innocent spirt to all of our relationships and all areas of our lives.
