As preparation for any Forrest Yoga event, explore a wise nutritional strategy to prepare your whole body for an experience of growth. 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.

Cultivating a lifestyle of optimal nutrition is part of every Forrest Yoga Training. Jose says:
There are three great reasons to become Vegan;
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.– Jose Calarco
