Awaken to Spirit - Uncover your true Self – Discover your passion

Majestic mountain scenery and mystical lake serenity, experience the transformative energy of this incredible place deep within your soul.

Sharing yoga is an process of intimacy; one that asks for deep movement within both giver and receiver: through love, authenticity, attention and connection.  There are many ways in which yoga can be shared, but here at The Yoga Forest we believe that the fundamental principle that links all of our yoga teaching is Connection; the concept that in order to truly help another being to find oneness, we must ourselves be a channel to that oneness for our students.

Step away from your life and come closer to your calling through connecting to your heart and embracing the oneness within all paths as the realization of Self;
