Leigh Ann has completed 5 teacher trainings and has more than 5,000 hours of teaching experience. She frequently says that her first training with Ana Forrest is the best decision she has ever made. Since then, yoga has permeated all aspects of her life and teaching has become her passion. Leigh Ann practices and teaches yoga as a tool for building deeper awareness and healing. She is a firm believer that classes with chairs and classes with handstands can be equally valuable, and that every student’s body is different. Expect precise alignment cues, intelligent sequencing, and a lightheartedness not normally associated with yoga.
Michael began his yoga practice in 2012 and rapidly built up to a twice daily practice. Within a year, he chose to pursue teacher training with Ana Forrest, and he now teaches regularly. Mike’s Forrest Yoga classes create space for yogis to sweat, laugh, breathe, and think. In his “off the mat” time, Mike reads, writes, hikes, bikes, cooks, and mulls over the worlds problems.
Forrest Yoga is designed to address the physical ailments of our modern lifestyle, including lower and upper back pain, neck and shoulder issues, wrist problems, and intestinal disorders. Poses are modified so they can be practiced in a way that is pain free, but still challenging. “Forrest Yoga does not require strength or flexibility; it only requires a willingness to learn how to feel authentically and respond honestly. The practice is founded on four pillars: Breath, Strength, Integrity and Spirit.”
-Ana T. Forrest
All healing, all relationships, all great things start with honesty. Speaking truth is about listening to your body and responding with grace. We Speak Truth through Forrest Yoga.
