Forrest Yoga Masterclasses with Ana Forrest & Jose Calarco
Each workshop begins with a short, yet very special ceremony of song, invocation and smoke blessing. Ana and Medicine Man, Jose Calarco set the intent for the practice and honour the ancestors and custodians of our sacred land.
To Walk in Beauty means to walk in harmony with all things — not only physically, but also with feelings and our inner wilderness. And with people, objects, animals…with life! Free yourself from whatever entraps you. In this series of workshops, you will learn to open your receptors to perceive the Beauty in and around you and to think and act in a Beauty Way, which completely shifts your perception of life. You move from victim mode — everything bad happens to me — or judging mode — this is great, this sucks — to curiosity and a desire to discern the truth. Live in a Beauty Way — a way that is exhilarating, fulfilling and fascinating.
