Becoming Vegan

Forrest Yoga teaches that an integral part of Walking In Beauty is to become Vegan. The teachings of Veganism bring more focus to our foundational soul ethics: feeling our connection to nature, living with the awareness of being part of the Great Mystery, helping our people - giving assistance where needed, respecting animals and the delicate interlacing of all life. The indigenous Wisdom Keepers point out that the animals are our teachers.

Advanced Teacher Training

This 9 day yoga Ceremony is a highly experiential deep dive into your personal transformation through pranayama, asana, teaching, and life changing ceremonies. This course welcomes teachers from other yoga schools and lineages to join the Forrest Yoga education program. You will learn the art of sequencing, to practice and teach intermediate and advanced asana, and to prioritize the needs of your students. This training brings you, the student, to an unprecedented depth of contact with the Sacred; through the study and exploration of energy, intuition, and intimacy with your authentic self (note to editor: maybe replace with Spirit).
There are three great reasons to become Vegan;
1. Compassion. Do not support immoral industries that treat animals like lifeless commodities. Profit has no conscience. 2. Environment. Factory Farming and affiliated industries that produce meat and dairy products are primarily responsible for much of the planet’s environmental crisis. 3. Health. Vegans have 40% less risk of cancers & serious diseases. Harmful toxins and chemicals in food are 14 times greater when stored in animal tissue than plants.
