Physical demands - your body, your yoga
Physically demanding practice
Forrest yoga is a style of yoga that was devised by American yogi, Ana T. Forrest. It uses the motto, “Go Deeper”.

Forrest Yoga is built on the basis of four pillars:

  • breath
  • strength
  • integrity 
  • spirit
During these sessions, inspired by the teachings of Ana Forrest, we put an emphasis on:

  • finding connection in the body through deep breathing
  • becoming centred through core strength
  • becoming self aware of our ‘edges’ and creating a sense of freedom on and off the mat. 
These elements create an intensely physical and internally focused yoga practice.

You don’t need to be strong or flexible to attempt Forrest Yoga. All you need is a willingness to learn. Whether you’re brand new to yoga or a well-seasoned practitioner, this style can offer you many benefits.

Join Maria as she guides you through her own practice which incorporates elements of inspiration taken from Forrest Yoga and other more traditional forms of Yoga such as Hatha and Vinyasa Flow.

  • Observe physical distancing practices (2m, or 1m+ when 2m is not possible) 
  • Arrive in good time (10 minutes before class) as these procedures take more time.

  • Go directly to the studio (Studio 1, downstairs) 
  • Take your mat to the furtherest designated spot (positions marked out).
  • Leave the studio one at a time, as directed by the teacher, so that social distance can be observed at all times.
