Unlocking The Hips
Friday 29 September, 5.30-7.30pm
Using breath and Forrest Yoga sequencing we will begin to unravel the tension around the hips and low back. Through standing poses and some of the exquisite Forrest Hip openers you will go deeper into your hips than before!
Forrest Yoga Inversions
Saturday 30 September, 2.00-4.00pm
In Forrest Yoga, we use intense poses to sparkle up our blood and to excite the body. Nothing is more exciting than inversions, turning the world on its head and changing your perspectives physically. Using Forrest Yoga sequences we will stabilise the shoulders, strengthen the core and work on ways to break the anxiety around going upside down by using very safe inversions. Once we have established some foundations, you can play at your level with what would work best to bring aliveness into your body.
