During this two day experiential intensive course you’ll focus on:
  • The 12 structural muscles that protect the spine and hold the skeleton in place;
  • Performing muscle testing and correction techniques to complement your yoga teaching;
  • Indepth study of the anatomy of postures and the inter-relationships of the muscular skeletal systems.

Over the course of the two days you’ll:
  • Understand what these key muscles do, how they interact, and how pain and injury can result when they’re not functioning properly;
  • In yourself and with partners, identify, examine and test these key muscles for function or weakness;
  • Experience using these muscles in poses learning how to activate them and improve their flexibility through yoga.
By gaining a full understanding of anatomy you will be better placed to support your students and grow their practice. Places are limited to allow for maximum individual interaction and instruction so book now to guarantee your place.

Brian Campbell Workshops in Berlin
Featuring Brian Campbell, Forrest Yoga Guardian
Marvel in a nutshell! A yummy taster weekend of Forrest Yoga, Applied Anatomy, and Myo-Fascial Bodywork by Forrest Yoga Senior Guardian Brian Campbell.

Workshop Location
Dock 11
Kastanien Allee 79
10435 Berlin
Germany

Anatomy Wizzard Brian Campbell offers this weekend to all you inquisitive yoga practicioners and teachers, bodyworkers and healers out there who desire to attain the next level of marvel in your personal and professional practice.

The weekend's educational focus is on pelvic tilts & rotations

Everybody has a different type of pelvic tilt and rotation unique to their structure and personality. Becoming aware of the many complex variables that create each person's posture sensibilizes our skills in adressing a person's postural uniqueness.

These two days of comprehensive practicing and learning offer an advanced understanding of pelvic tilts and rotations, how to visually “see” postural specifics and differences, and how to address them through Forrest Yoga and Myo-Fascial Release Bodywork.

Find out more about the schedule, price and booking of Brian's workshops.

Anatomy Course with Ellen Heed
Featuring Ellen Heed

Montgomery, Texas 77356 United States of America
832-567-4550
FUNCTIONAL ANATOMY OF YOGA
This three-day anatomy intensive with nationally renowned teacher, Ellen Heed, is highly experiential with an emphasis on sharpening each teacher's perceptual skills to better assess the needs of their students in the environment of a yoga class. This class satisfies the 20-hour anatomy requirement for the National Yoga Alliance 200-hour certification.

The art of assessment is a life-long process by which a yoga teacher gains mastery and depth as an instructor. Learn some of the short-cuts to assessment in this fun and highly informative class about the interrelationship of the Rule of Four: Biomechanics, Biochemistry, Scar Tissue, and Emotional Blockage.

In this class, you will learn to perceive:

How our Emotional Blockage expresses itself as posture and postural deviation.
How our Scar Tissue affects flexibility, even at a distance from an injury.
How genetics influences our Biomechanics and how to tell when it doesn't.
How our Biochemistry (for better of for worse can determine the pleasure of our practice.

What to expect:
Visual: There will be richly illustrated lectures and physical demonstrations. 
Aural: We will have lively and intense question and answer interactions. 
Kinesthetic: We will learn hands-on exercises combining palpation skills and bodywork technique to find out where emotions affect our energetic systems, and how to get the most out of the relaxation response.
We will also practice Experiential Anatomy Yoga, taught by one of the Forrest Yoga trainers

Featuring Sandra Robinson, Forrest Yoga Guardian
Evolve Wellness Centre
10 kendrick mews
London

The Forrest Yoga Continuing Education for Teachers is a 3-day teacher training that promotes powerful insights providing deeper integration with one's true self and helps teachers to become a more skillful, passionate, intelligent and authentic teacher, so you are better equipped to deal with challenges your student may have. Teaching authentically is much more effective and compelling for both you and your students.

Eligible Participants

Teachers aspiring to improve their teaching and personal practice and those that are ready to move deeper within themselves and increase the mental acuity needed to explore the rich tapestry of Forrest Yoga. A minimum number of years of teaching experience is not required.  We expect you to have the willingness, health and strength to commit to 100% of this teacher training.  

Training Overview

Taught by Sandra Robinson, one of Ana’s few Forrest Yoga Guardians, over 3-days, the objective of this teacher training is to encourage trainees to develop as individuals as well as to make you a more skilled, intelligent and authentic teacher. Awareness is a vital component when developing the skills necessary to teach from your own found truths. Through daily meditation, intensives and group instruction, trainees begin to discover the voice of their own spirit, which leads to a truly authentic life path.

Ceremony & Intensives

Each day starts off with a ceremony involving chanting, drumming and a teaching story or a fairy tale  to set the intent for the day and create the space for healing and connection to your spirit, followed by an intensive that will create a heightened sense of physical, emotional and spiritual awareness while challenging every muscle and cell in your body. Through a carefully sequenced Forrest Yoga asanas, Sandra will open you to amazing depths and feelings of awareness. You will leave feeling cleansed, refreshed and alive. The intensives are a sanctuary where you can feel safe to open up, work through issues that may arise and go beyond your perceived limitations. You will learn about yourself and feel what it is like to have freedom in your own body and mind. The intensives are sure to bring each trainee to new levels within their yoga practice.

Teacher Training

The afternoon sessions encompass 4-5 hour sessions of training and instruction. Using skill-building exercises, trainees will work with the essential elements of teaching, such as: class sequencing, explore optimal personal nutrition, work with sadhanas (spiritual exercises), learn about personal and professional ethics, effective pose sequencing, the use of safe and effective hands-on adjustments, and effective clear, concise and powerful communication, eliminating habitual phrases, and tone of voice as well as the continued development of a more charismatic presence and honesty in your class.

A Pacific Coast Yoga Retreat: Adventure, Ceremony and Yoga in Costa Rica
Featuring Jerusha Rone, Forrest Yoga Teacher
Adventure to the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, at stunning Luna Lodge in the Osa Peninsula, for an illuminating week of ceremony, yoga, and nature immersion. Each day will begin with a traditional ceremony of drumming, chanting and journey –work, led by Jerusha Rone. She will then guide you through a 2 hour, (intent driven), Forrest yoga practice, all while receiving hands on assists and adjustments from Lana Smithner and Brittany Bares. Afternoon sessions will be led by Brittany or Lana and include a second asana practice, as well as talking circles, book talks, yoga nidra and nature immersions into the surrounding park and local beach. Three organic and healthy meals will be included for each day. Body-work and other support services will be available at an additional cost.

National Geographic has described the Osa Peninsula as, “The most biologically intense place on Earth.” The property hosts hundreds of plant and animal species, as well as a year-round waterfall. After you have explored the rainforest, take a short walk to the beach to witness a breath-taking sunset set against the Pacific Ocean. We hope that the time you spend nurturing yourself in this sacred space will not only leave you feeling creative and connected, but will also give you the confidence and support to use these tools when you go back home!

The retreat package includes:
- A 7 night/ 6 day luxurious stay at Luna Lodge
- Internal flights from San Jose to the Osa Peninsula and transfer to Luna Lodge
