Ana Forrest’s Spirit Pledge:
Mending the Rainbow Hoop of the People
During the time that Ana lived on a reservation among Native people, she had her own vision of Mending the Rainbow Hoop of the People. This became her Spirit Pledge. She and Jose are teaching people how to be stewards of the Earth and all its living beings, by connecting to each of their own vibrant Spirits.
Ana Forrest has received the honour of the Mayoral Commendation for her work of “Mending the Hoop” of the City of Los Angeles in 2006 as the first and only yoga teacher.
Ana and Jose have worked relentlessly over the past 40 years to support indigenous communities in the USA and Australia.
Donating yoga classes for people who can’t afford yoga in communities all over the world is part of each Forrest Yoga Teachers process to receive certification.
Scholarships are offered for BIPOC people.
Ana and Jose keep supporting indigenous artists by inviting them into their ceremonies, by promoting their yoga clothes and leggings to their worldwide audience and by offering their art for sale on the Forrest Yoga online store.
Trainings are offered at reduced prices in developing countries by Forrest Yoga Guardians.
