Healing Yoga Circle: A Weekend Forrest Yoga Series
Featuring Lola Rephann, Forrest Yoga Teacher
Each practice begins with what we call in Forrest Yoga “calling in the four directions,” a short ceremony/meditation based on the Four Directions of Native American spirituality, a concept that is ancient and reflected in practices such as Feng Shui, tarot, shamanism, astrology, Traditional Chinese Medicine, I Ching, paganism, etc. By calling in the four directions and sitting in circle, we align with ancient and powerful archetypes and connect our own story to the larger story of humanity and the global shift we are  experiencing and co-creating at this time.

We then move through pranayama and a series of warm ups designed to prepare the body for the deeper postures. We slowly and mindfully open the major joints (spine, hips, shoulders), warm up the core, and perform heating flowing yoga series like Sun Salutations or Surya Namaskar “B” series. Then we dive in through a well-sequenced series of poses that will bring you to your edge and take you deep inside. The series culminates in an apex pose followed by a sweet savasana. Each Healing Yoga Circle is limited to 10 participants to ensure individual attention and appropriate modifications for all.

Location: Reflections Center for Conscious Living & Yoga
Address: 227 E. 24th St. (between 2nd & 3rd Aves.), New York City, NY

Mats are available for rental. All props available at the studio.

INVESTMENT:

Forrest & Vinyasa Yoga Retreat in the South of France
Featuring Erica Mather, Forrest Yoga Guardian
Practice gratitude, receive grace. When you acknowledge what's good, when you say thanks, you give energy back to the source. It's giving and getting all at once without all the grasping and straining.  The circle continues and support is everywhere. Over time, the practice of gratitude turns effort into grace. Learn to bring the very feeling of of living well into your cell tissues to manifest the essence of positivity in all facets of your life. This is not just some new-agey speech. You will hone the very skill of using feelings to develop intelligence so as to create opportunities and space in both practice and life. More than just enjoying a sumptuous week in the South of France with amazing cuisine and personalized luxury, this retreat is about planting the seeds of a beautiful life, ripping out the weeds at their roots, and growing from the good essence of your Spirit. Grace, above all, is connection to Spirit, to the best and most creative and strongest and softest part of you. You will explore how the acts of asana and gratitude may create a state of grace, and how that state of grace is truly a reservoir into which you can dip your cup long after your retreat has ended.

This retreat represents the second annual collaboration between Forrest Yoga Guardian Erica Mather, and Benjamin Sears, founder of LUXYOGA. Join them for a special blend of therapeutically crafted Vinyasa classes, deeply healing Forrest Yoga, Pranayama, and intention setting practices. Expect to be challenged in a safe space by teachers who care more about you than the poses but also love to get sweaty and deep. Kindred Spirits, unite in the South of France!

Mine Your Depths: A Forrest Hip Opening Workshop - Friday, September 18th 6:00-8:30pm
Your hips connect your legs to your core, and your legs stand on the ground, keeping you “grounded.” When the hips are locked or clogged, it inhibits your ability to connect with the depths of your first and second charkas, cuts you off from the deep wisdom and creative energy that lies there, and also disconnects you from the earth.
Forrest Yoga is an inspiring method that asks you to go deeper, feeling for what mysteries, treasures, and truths are yet to be uncovered in your hips. In this workshop we will unlock the hips and mine their depths. This workshop is for all levels of practitioners; you will leave feeling connected to your inherent wisdom like never before.

They run a different amperage through the nervous system, begin to resonate you at higher frequency, and rev-up your energy! Forrest Yoga is inspiring yoga method that encourages you to dive into the magic and truth of your existence. In this workshop, you will learn Forrest methods of heating the body, opening it, and backbending deeply with ease and safety. This workshop is for all levels of practitioners; you will leave feeling the exhilaration that comes from the high-voltage experience of intense backbending!

Delight Your Spirit: A Forrest Inversions & Arm Balances Workshop - Sunday, September 20th 10:00am-12:30pm

This workshop is for all levels of practitioners; you will leave feeling the excitement that comes from connecting to the core, building strength, flexibility and balance, and most importantly, delighting your spirit.
