(Cliquez ici pour la version française)

This training is for people who want to learn how to heal themselves so they can learn how to help heal others. We will be exploring your own asymmetries, injuries and anatomical characteristics through 4 days of yoga, bodywork, & ceremony. It is also open to certified yoga teachers who are looking to deepen their teaching skills and also complete continuing education hours with Yoga Alliance.

During these workshops, You will learn to feel how the relationships of muscular/fascial patterns shape the physical body and how it moves and breathes by exploring your own anatomical characteristics, asymmetries and injuries through 4 days of yoga, bodywork & ceremony

You will be trained to understand, feel and see anatomy through breath and movement patterns in a whole new way.

You will learn to see how emotions get stuck in the body and work with how the nervous system and breath respond.

You will experience the difference between practicing “thinking mode » versus « feeling mode” and learn effective ways to strengthen your ability to hold attention and discern deeper levels of feeling.

Our famous CARESS is the practical foundation of our bodywork philosophy.  It is the backbone of all touch techniques and the most profound approach to communicating with the body.

How it works is best displayed in how mom or dad soothes their young child with touch, or how a dog and dog-lover communicate through play and petting. The Medicine of the Caress comes through in how it communicates to the receiver that they are perfect as they are, they are worthy of being touched in a way that makes them feel good, and that they are safe, loved, and cared for. 

Without the Caress as a backbone most forms of bodywork tends toward being mechanistic. With the Caress, the body’s neuro-muscular-fascial-fatty-lymphatic-vascularized sleeve learns how to uptake pleasure and meet it’s own tension in ways that release and process out through the entire body. 


Students who attend the full four days of training will receive a 25 hour Yoga Alliance Continuing Education certificate.

What is Forrest Yoga?

Forrest Yoga is renowned as an intensely physical and internally focused practice that emphasizes how to carry a transformative experience off the mat and into daily life.  The practice challenges 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. 

Forrest Yoga does not require strength or flexibility; it only requires a willingness to learn how to feel authentically and respond honestly. The practice is founded on four pillars : Breath, Strength, Integrity and Spirit.

Forrest Yoga teaches you how to breathe deeply, connect in feeling with your body, use the power of breath to bring aliveness into every cell of your body and ignite your passion for living.

Forrest Yoga teaches you to connect to your core, to be strong and centered. The intense pose sequences are designed to help you develop the skills to awaken each of your senses. The long holds help you progress in the poses and go deeper. Aided by the use of heat, your body is freed from toxins; the deep breathing  oxygenates and rejuvenates every cell in your body.

Forrest Yoga teaches you to become proficient at safely tailoring each pose to work best for you, particularly with physical and emotional injuries. By learning to work honestly at your edges, you develop effective tools to deal with fear and struggle. This makes it possible for integrity, self-awareness and playful curiosity to become part of your daily life.

Forrest Yoga’s intent is to create a sense of freedom, a connection to your Spirit and the courage to walk as your Spirit dictates.

Forrest Yoga:

  • teaches you to go deeper to find your truth, and encourages you to take these gifts you have earned beyond the mat and into the rest of your life.

  • honors and celebrates the beauty of life and the power of Spirit. It is an inspiring yoga practice that builds flexibility, intelligence and strength while helping deepen the relationship with your authentic self. Accessing your intuition – the voice of your Spirit – builds personal strength and ushers integrity into your daily interactions.

  • challenges you to heal, grow and welcome your Spirit home.
