Born crippled, Ana Forrest's life trauma and experiences -- including physical abuse, drug addiction, epilepsy, and bulimia -- led her to create Forrest Yoga, her unique fusion of Eastern yoga and Native American medicine. Now recognized as a pioneer in Yoga and emotional healing who travels the world giving workshops, retreats, and teacher-trainings, Ana shares her inspiring story of how Yoga saved her life, and shows how it can do the same for the reader.
For those who've never tried yoga to those who've been practicing for years, with more than thirty-five years experience learning and teaching yoga, Forrest presents tools for life transformation tested on the hundreds of thousands of students she has taught. This book lays out a system of practices that specifically address the challenges and stresses -- physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual -- that all people face.
Forrest's method starts by listening to one's body -- often the aches, pains, stiffness or anxieties. She helps readers recognise the messages their bodies are trying to send, and then guides them through spiritual and physical exercises to address what is causing pain or stress. A true warrior that has taken some of life's most difficult trials and turn them into a life of healing, Ana Forrest shows us how to stop hiding from ourselves and live fully in our lives and bodies.
