For the past few months I've been blessed to have the opportunity to assist Forrest Yoga Guardian, Colleen Millen (a Guardian is a master Forrest yoga teacher personally chosen by Ana Forrest who has the power to train and mentor teachers) in advanced level classes. It is the mastery of these healing hands-on assists that originally drew me to this style of yoga and continues to nourish me as a teacher and assistant, now on the giving end.
I'm excited to be a part of this weekend's Forrest Yoga Ceremony and asana intensive: "Unraveling the Mysteries of the Hips, Neck and Shoulders: Forrest Yoga Ceremony and Intensive", assisting two very special Forrest Yoga Guardian Mentors Kiki Lovelace and Colleen Millen. To experience a Forrest Yoga Ceremony, the Native American-inspired Calling in the Four Directions is one of the most grounding and spirit-connecting ways is a rare treat and adds another juicy layer to delving into authentic self unlike any I've experienced in the yoga world. Not to me missed!
DESCRIPTION (text from Innerstellar's website):
We’ll begin our 2.5 hour workshop with Guardian Mentors Colleen & Kiki leading the class with Native American-inspired ceremony, including Calling in the Four Directions, chanting and meditation, followed by a juicy Forrest Yoga sequence.
