Forrest Yoga introduces terms and ways of sequencing different from other styles of yoga. This class will ground you in the basic foundations of a Forrest Yoga practice and through specific cueing, connect you to your body and breath in a very new way. If you are new to yoga, or have practised another style, you will pick up tools to add another dimension to your practice from this incredible healing modality.
Students can expect Finlay’s personal attention around injuries and explore developing their own resources to create a yoga practice that suits them and their unique body. Finlay brings a sense of humour to his practice in a way that will get you understanding your body in a new way, feeling connected to your muscles, and breaking habits while laughing.
