Allison is the lead assistant teacher when Ana Forrest is in town!
How does fear affect you? Interested in learning how to change your relationship to fear? Fear is a
powerful emotion that dictates our decisions and hinders us from making good choices. Fear can lead to anxiety, despair and depression. Forrest Yoga teaches you a different way to relate and work with fear. It teaches you to use fear as a warning call, to listen, be alert and proceed cautiously. Fear does not have to be something that paralyzes you. In this session you will use breath and asana to access, comfort and support the parts of your body that are constricted by fear. This new approach to our fearful places brings about change quickly. Your body responds and relief can be felt immediately. You learn to move breath into these areas, stay steady, and remain present as difficult emotions surface, shift and transform. The bands that constrict your life force and contort your body begin to loosen. You will have room to breathe! When you treat your fearful parts with attention and compassion, you allow the ‘wonderful’ back into your life.
This workshop begins with a short, yet very special Ceremony of song, invocation & smoke blessing. Ana & Medicine Man, Jose Calarco set the intent for the practice and honor the ancestors and custodians of our sacred land.
