Forrest Yoga: The Essential Practice!

It’s about the yoga. Yoga in community. Connection is the cure.

Heidi and Denise are taking you back to the Forrest Yoga weekend immersion format their own practices grew from. More important, we gather together to learn and share with each other. Yes, there will be abs, many abs, there will be wrist stretches, a standing series, over-the-roll, handstands and arm balances. If you have never experienced Forrest Yoga, this is the perfect way to dive in. If you have, this is the weekend getaway you've been wanting.

4 Master classes in one weekend will cover all the bases. Friday night you create a core connection getting centered and grounded with your breath. Saturday morning is heart opening and back bending. Saturday afternoon gets you upside down. And Sunday morning helps you defy gravity.

Through the carefully sequenced, building asana, first you'll connect with yourself and then you'll create a deeper connection to spirit.

Saturday and Sunday morning will include ceremony and meditation. Saturday afternoon will leave some time for question and answer. These classes are sequenced specifically within a class and across days to take you and your practice to the next level!

Location. Location. Location.

Join us at the Himalayan Institute in Honesdale, PA. Located approximately 2.5 HRs from New York City, Philadelphia, and CT, for more than forty years the Himalayan Institute’s Retreat Center has been a gathering place for people seeking inspiration and aspiring to restore inner balance. It’s a place for seekers wishing to study the ancient tradition of yoga and to deepen the connection between themselves and the world around them.

Nestled in the rolling hills of the Poconos, the Himalayan Institute’s picturesque 400-acre campus offers scenic trails, a wellness center with massage, ayurvedic, and chiropractic services, daily yoga and meditation, a tea lounge, and marketplace. Heidi calls it an Old Skool Kripalu...
