Workshops with Sandra Heider in Hamburg Germany
Featuring Sandra Heider, Forrest Yoga Guardian
Bikram Yoga Studio Hamburg Your Yoga
Eppendorfer Landstraße 104 (rear courtyard)
+49 (0)40 46774618
Sandra Heidier - the only Forrest Yoga Mentor Guardian in Europe - will be doing a series of workshops in Hamburg September 26 - September 28

Hands and Feet Connection with the Earth:
Friday September 26 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

This workshop invites you to slow down, to breathe deeper and to feel the body.

Physically, this workshop concentrates primarly on standing positions and secondly on inversions with the aim to feel the hands and feet and to keep in the contact with the earth. Mentally and emotionally, you will learn to be present and to be in the moment. That will help you to find inner peace and to be more grounded.

Hips: joy, passion and emotions
Saturday September 27. Part 1 1:00pm - 3:30 pm  Part 2 4:30 - 7:00pm

The first part of this workshop is focused on hip openers - to set free the energy in the hips. The intention is to let go, let flow the emotions and to rediscover joy and passion. With the help of intentional Forrest Yoga sequencing, the energy blocks in the hips will be released.

The second part of this workshop will focus on exploring sensuality, joy and passion. You will have the chance to ask questions in order to understand Forrest Yoga from the cognitive side. There will be a simple asana practice to help get emotionally deeper into it.

These two workshop build on each other. We recommend you to take both parts. This is an excellent workshop for couples.

The Jawbone: Express your personal truth
Sunday September 28 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

This workshop will focus on relaxation of the neck and jawbone, which is a "basic move“ in Forrest Yoga. Both the neck and jawbone are related to the expression of our personal truth, which is sometimes challenging for us. Backward bends are used to open the chest, throat, and jawbone. This evolves the courage to express what is important to us and what our heart says. We will also use sounds, to loosen enegy blocks.

All of these workshops are physically intensive, but beginners with some yoga experience, and a willingness to work, are welcome.

Workshops with Sandra Heider in Vienna
Featuring Sandra Heider, Forrest Yoga Guardian
Beatrixgasse 28
+43 66 4837 2209

Sandra will be teaching three Forrest Yoga workshops in Vienna.

The themes for these workshops are:

Making The Unconscious Conscious - part 1
This workshop focuses on hip openers and inversions in order to explore ourselves further and to deepen into who we are. The emphasis is on what is happening in the moment, what is moving to the foreground and what is opening up. The workshop invites you to develop curiosity, so that you can feel what is happening physically and emotionally in every moment. 

Making The Unconscious Conscious - part 2
In the afternoon we’ll explore the theme of “Making the Unconscious Conscious” through partner and movement exercises, a light asana practice and guided writing. Please bring pen and paper and wear yoga clothing. To get the most out of the workshop and to have a more meaningful experience, we recommend to attend the morning in order to participate in the afternoon. 

Metamorphosis Through Forrest Yoga. 
This workshop stresses the transformational power of Forrest Yoga. We can only transform ourselves if we wholeheartedly accept who we are. The paradox of change states that we can’t become somebody else, but we can become more fully who we are and be more fully invested in our current situation instead of wishing for things to be different continuously. Transformation and change naturally come out of this state of acceptance. The physical focus lies on standing poses and inversion.

The Yoga Diaries Book Launch Party in San Francisco
Featuring Colleen Millen, Forrest Yoga Guardian
Yoga Tree San Francisco - Potrero
1500 16th St.
San Francisco, California 94103 United States
(415) 655-3936
Come to the book signing and launch of The Yoga Diaries; Stories of Transformation Through Yoga

Edited by Jeannie Page, The Yoga Diaries features stories from a few Forrest Yogis, including Guardian Teacher Colleen Millen.

"Yoga is a practice of the mind, body, and spirit. It is a practice that has the power to change, heal, and transform us. Many of us who have chosen to walk the yogic path already know this. We know this because we have not only experienced our own powerful transformations, but we have also seen dramatic, and at times even miraculous, metamorphoses of the souls that walk beside us on this path. The Yoga Diaries is a powerful collection of these stories of transformation through yoga: stories of physical and emotional healing; stories of overcoming great adversity and often finding one’s true purpose; stories of breath-taking, alchemical soul transformations and spiritual healing; stories from beautiful hearts and souls from all over the globe. The inspiring stories of the brave yogis within these pages will convince you that yoga is a practice for anyone ... for everyone."

As part of the event, Colleen will be reading a portion of her story called "Enter the Lion" about her first experience meeting Ana Forrest.

Other Forrest Yoga teachers whose stories are included in this book are Bridget Boland, Rebecca Butler, and Amber Shumake. Ana Forrest herself has given a quote for the book too.

The evening will start with a yoga class and move to book readings, a Q&A, and signings.

Donations are appreciated.

This event will be at Yoga Tree Protrero in San Francisco
