    The 4 Paths of Yoga

    Thursday, April 27th, 7:30pm - 9:00pm
    The 4 Paths of Yoga

    Take your practice to new depths by building on your understanding of the underlying yogic philosophy.

    There are Four main paths of Yoga and most people are primarily attracted to one of these. The most familiar is Raja Yoga, where we use the body and breath to control the mind, such as in any Yoga class. According to the great Masters, it is important to practice a little from each of the other three paths to progress in any one. This workshop will explore all four paths, Raja Yoga the path of controlling the mind, Bhakti Yoga, the devotional path, Jnana Yoga, the path of knowledge and Karma Yoga, the path of selfless service. In this way students can compliment and deepen their own practice and develop a greater understanding of what is Yoga.

    The physical practice which most people are familiar with is just the tip of the iceberg of the benefits of Yoga. By learning more about the practice you can better understand yourself and quicken your spiritual growth.

    New Moon Meditation for Prosperity & Abundance

    Thursday, April 27th, 5:45pm - 7:15pm
    New Moon Meditation for Prosperity & Abundance

    "Prosperity is a state produced immediately by the mind. When the sun comes out of the clouds, everything is lit. When the mind comes out of duality, prosperity is there."- Yogi Bhajan

    Meditating at the time of the New Moon intensifies our intentions and makes it an ideal time to focus on prosperity (personal and business) and abundance using the energy of the New Moon combined with Kundalini Yoga kriyas and meditations.

    Prosperity and abundance come in many forms.  When one’s internal attitude is out of alignment, it doesn’t matter what that person has or doesn’t have in the material world.  When we connect with an internal attitude of prosperity, we become like a magnet. The abundance of the universe flows to us.

    Our class includes breath work (pranayam), a short yoga set (kriya) for awareness, a prosperity meditation followed by a deep relaxation (savasana) in the celestial sounds and vibrations of two Gongs.

    Master Class Weekend: Ana Forrest

    Friday, April 28th, 6:00pm - 8:30pm
    Master Class Weekend: Ana Forrest
     
    If you want to use yoga to heal emotional pain, you must find out where it resides in your body and learn to take your breath there. I don’t teach yoga to help people to transcend. I want people’s Spirits to reside in their body. I literally want to help people embody their Spirit, not go through life fragmented.” – Ana T. Forrest

    The Forrest Yoga seminars are asana (posture) focused practices. Forrest Yoga helps you connect to your core – getting strong and centered. It uses heat, deep breathing and vigorous sequences to sweat out toxins. The long holds in the pose progressions help you flush, oxygenate and rejuvenate every cell.

    The Forrest Yoga seminars are offered to practitioners of all levels. As a beginner, you learn to breathe deeply and connect in feeling with your body. As you progress, you get proficient at safely tailoring each pose to work best for you; particularly with physical and emotional injuries.


    Unraveling the Mysteries of the Hips, Neck and Shoulders - Friday, April 28, 2017 – 6 pm – 8:30 pm

    This workshop begins with a short, yet very special Ceremony of song, dance & smoke blessing. Ana & Medicine Man, Jose Calarco set the intent for the practice and honour those taking part, the ancestors and custodians of our sacred land.

    In this Forrest Yoga session you learn to create freedom and strength in hip, neck and shoulders. You will learn to safely unlock these habitual tension spots through intensely focused breathwork and asana (including inversions, standing poses and vinyasa). Strengthen and lengthen the muscles around these joints and create space in these areas. This work helps you walk through your life with grace and freedom.

    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.

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, 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.
