Forrest Yoga for Injuries

injuryiconPeople who are injured tend to think that they can't do yoga, that the injury needs rest and maybe physiotherapy to heal. But having an injury is actually the time when yoga can be of most service to you. Forrest Yoga is a healing practice that should help you to ease the pain in your body, to understand why the pain is there and to learn what you can do to free yourself from suffering. It teaches you how to use your breath effectively and how to shift your focus inside to feel and find out what works for you and your body and what doesn't.
Contrary to how we regard it, physical pain is not the foe. It is meant to be a warning sign for us to proceed with caution, but not to go completely numb. In her book Fierce Medicine, Ana T. Forrest likens it to "a dark prison cell: you can put your head down and try to blast through the wall (the athlete's approach), you can back away from the wall and stay imprisoned (as many do), or you can reach out and really explore the wall until you find the door, open it, and step free."
If you are interested in stepping free, please complete the enquiry form or give me a call. Having had injuries of my own, I am fascinated by working with students with physical problems. For me, one of the most fulfilling aspects of teaching Forrest Yoga is seeing my students' physical health improve session by session.
