Forrest Yoga Inversions and Whispers from Within

Finlay Wilson - FR1WIL

In Forrest Yoga, we use intense poses to spark up our blood and to excite the body. Nothing is more exciting than inversions, turning the world on its head and changing your perspectives physically. Using Forrest Yoga sequences, we will learn to stabilize the shoulders, strengthen the core and work on ways to break the anxiety around going upside down by using very safe inversions. Choosing a focus point, we will use meditation and journaling to explore an emotion that feels stuck in your body. This will allow a deeper conversation with this part, giving that area voice and exploring the needs of the focus. The Yoga practice will allow you to develop new strategies for working with your focus spot giving you the opportunity to change the habits within. Once the foundations are established, play at your level to discover what works best to bring aliveness into your body.

Journey to the Core

Our core extends from pelvis to the head, an area with numerous connections. Holding the major energetic centers and chakras, the core is the ideal place to focus our breath for yoga therapy. Exploring abdominal exercises and strong poses, we will get warm and look at connecting to this power center, creating space in the abdominals to create a reflexive and responsive abdominal and core.
