Ana Forrest Workshops in Denver | March 2014

Thank you to everyone who came to the weekend of Ana Forrest workshops this March. It was so great to see how strong the Forrest Yoga community is in Denver. It is always so wonderful to have Ana right here in our community, bringing her strong ability to speak in a way that is direct, unedited, raw, real and truthful. This unique quality about Ana and her teaching is one of the many things that sets her apart. With non-judgment and honesty, she brings attention to the present moment, giving people the opportunity to take responsibility for their "stuff" and not space out, in yoga or in life. This practice takes courage and can heighten our awareness on all levels, consequently making us more connected to our own truths, our spirits and each other.

I am always honored to assist Ana, I absolutely love supporting all of the students in going deeper in their practice.  Thank you so much for being present for this weekend. Check out some of the photos below, and we look forward to Ana's next visit!
