About the instructor, Ana Forrest:

Ana Forrest is recognized worldwide as a pioneer in yoga and emotional healing. Born crippled, her own life trauma and experiences, which include physical abuse, drug addiction, epilepsy, and bulimia, compelled her to create Forrest Yoga® and the Forrest Yoga® Educational Library.

Ana took her first yoga class on a dare at age 14 and became a certified yoga instructor at age 18. In her search to become a better healer and teacher, she studied Native American medicine and ceremony, Polarity Therapy, Homeopathy, Hands-On Healing, Martial Arts, Psychotherapy, and Regression Therapy.

Her philosophy and approach are unique and powerful, drawing on her vast life experiences. She is a living example of a spirit who has freed herself from the bondage of trauma, and chosen a warrior's path of compassion. Having studied a multitude of Yoga styles and healing modalities, Ana's focus is on guiding the student to use Forrest Yoga® in a meaningful way for the sacred exploration of truth, wholeness, and health.

The way she teaches Asana, Breath, and the movement of energy allows for the epiphanies of the students' life experiences to emerge. These illuminations create a unique and powerful opportunity for the student to make practical life decisions based on their experiences.

She is a well-known contributing expert to Yoga Journal and other national wellness publications. She has journeyed to India, Nepal, Costa Rica, Canada, Japan, Mexico, and through out Europe and the United States and currently teaches internationally at yoga conferences, workshops, and teacher trainings. Ana is on the board of Advisors for the Foundation for Athletic Research & Education (F.A.R.E. play) and is an instructor for continuing education at the University of Bridgeport College of Chiropractic.

About the musician, Jose Calarco:

Jose Calarco has had a long and wide-ranging association in the arts in Australia and around the World for the last twenty ive years, in this time he has covered almost the entire spectrum of experience, from producer and administrator of large-scale events, to innovative artistic direction in the fields of dance, film, theatre, yoga and music. Jose’s strong management credentials have seen Descendance Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Dance Theatre grow into one of Australia’s leading international Cultural Exports. José’s ability to multi-task in marketing, box office, administration, sales, computers, performing musician, recording, writing and artistic direction was the foundation on which Descendance was built; the success of the company came with minimal financial Government support. Descendance has now realized its dreams and potential performing at the World’s premier festivals and events. Jose’s was at the forefront of the world music and dance evolution in the eighties and nineties in Australia as a producer, promoter and performer.

Most recently Jose has been the Ceremonial Leader for Forrest Yoga events lead by the Creatrix of Forrest Yoga, Ana T. Forrest. He creates and teaches ceremonies, tells creation stories from the traditions of the First Peoples of Australia and other shamanic ethnicities and weaves these into setting the intent for the yoga practice. Jose brings his passion, playfulness and heartfelt respect for the ceremonial traditions of the First Peoples to every workshop.
