Freedom from Struggle
Friday 6:30-9pm

Forrest Yoga teaches you how to deepen your poses by relating in a fresh, intelligent way to your challenging edges. Learn how to relax your core and safely change fear into excitement by riding the power of breath. In this session you will learn a different way to relate to your ‘edges’ besides struggling and panicking. By listening to the intelligence of your body you can create a deep, rewarding struggle-free practice. These principles of working through your struggles and fear apply to all aspects of your life. Be prepared to sweat and work in a whole new way.

Building Warrior Heart
Saturday 10am-12:30pm

With Forrest Yoga’s heart-opening asanas, you learn to breathe in a way that opens your core and gives the heart the support and counsel of the rest of the primary charkas. Learn to remove the emotional shielding from your heart so it can truly and honestly feel each new experience afresh. This helps your heart and Spirit be more resilient, flexible and adept at surfing emotional waves. Begin building skill in accessing, cleansing and resolving emotional issues and move them out of the cell tissue, thus freeing your heart. This makes room for seeing and absorbing the beauty and sweetness in our world, which nourishes the heart.

Ceremony & Music Healing
Saturday 2:30-5pm

We often live in a way that entraps our Spirit and confines it to a small space within our body. Experience Forrest Yoga meditation exercises, chants, music healing, and a dharma talk to create a safe space for your Spirit to live more freely and fully in your body. You will strengthen your relationship with your Spirit and walk through life as your Spirit dictates. This is a 2.5-hour workshop that includes about 30 minutes of asana.

Rewire Your Brain to Live the Life you Most Desire
Sunday, 10am-12:30pm

Are you ready to claim the life you most desire? It starts with getting on your mat and questing for it. In this workshop you will explore and understand which of your behaviors work and which don’t. Nourish and rewire your mind to change habitual behaviors that hold you back from claiming the life you most desire. Build new neurological pathways through breath and asana to ignite fresh connections within your brain, and create new patterns that help you move forward.

Please note due to the number of students who would like to practice with Ana & Jose, the workshop will be hosted at the Ramada Plaza by Wyndham in Wheeling. The CTA has a stop nearby, the location is near the expressway, and car-pooling is available. The hotel will have a special vegetarian menu on Saturday during the break or bring your own lunch.
