About Forrest Yoga
Forrest Yoga is renowned globally as a powerfully physical, internally focused Ceremonial yoga practice that emphasizes how to carry a transformative experience from the yoga mat into daily life.

Together, husband and wife duo, Ana Forrest and Jose Calarco are at the forefront of the Yoga world guiding its future and evolution. Every Forrest Yoga event with Ana and Jose is a Yoga Ceremony. Ana and Jose use smoke cleansing, music, and an honoring invocation to the Ancestors, asking for permission to do their work on the Ancestors’ land. In their unique style, Ana and Jose combine intelligent pose sequencing with a spiritual intent. They blend music, song, invocation, smoke blessing, storytelling, prayer, philosophy, and primordial and shamanic healing practices into each event. Ana and Jose teach the art of evolving the self and establishing a connection with Spirit and Nature.
Accessible to all

Today, Forrest Yoga is taught all across the globe by certified Forrest Yoga teachers. Forrest Yoga classes are for everyone, and accessible to all bodies and backgrounds.
Learning from the First Peoples
Forrest Yoga was created to fill what Ana Forrest perceived as a void in the traditional forms of yoga. In her own words,

traditional forms of yoga did not address most of my deeper injuries; my lost Soul, the addictions—the helplessness around the addictions—and the ongoing suffering. The blend of Ceremonies, the poses I’ve created, the sequencing and the infusion of Medicine I learned from the First Peoples of this planet are what healed the suffering and the anguish from having been disconnected from my Spirit. Through that sacred blend, I learned to reconnect to my Spirit.

Forrest Yoga incorporates the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of humanity, and links them through its 4 core pillars for a more profound and holistic evolution.
It all starts with the ability to connect to, deepen, and ride the breath into your inner wilderness. You develop skill in breathing fresh, healing energy into the areas of your body that are in need.
Forrest Yoga teaches you to become proficient at safely tailoring each pose to work for you, specifically with physical and emotional injuries. By learning to work honestly at your edges, you develop effective tools to deal with fear and struggle. This makes it possible for integrity, self-awareness and playful curiosity to become part of your daily life.
Connecting to the core, building emotional and physical strength as you work at your edges of facing and healing your pain, as well as vision questing into the Mystery.
