The 4 pillars of Forrest Yoga

Breath, Strength, Integrity, Spirit


The basis of Forrest Yoga:

Learn the connection between breath, mind and your body.

Through the practice, you will learn how to breathe fresh energy into your body thus promoting healing


Forrest Yoga allows to tailor poses for the unique physical and emotional injuries of each student. The exploration of the mind during the practice allows to recognize neurotic thought patterns, helping to morph these into problem solving capabilities and implementing them then into everyday life


The holistic approach of Forrest Yoga helps students to build emotional and physical strength. You will be able to transform personal injuries and develop a better mind-body connection.



This pillar aims to re-establishing and strengthen your connection with Spirit.

As you learn to deepen your connection to Spirit you will learn new ways of healing physical issues
