For over 3 years the Yoga Boys Berlin community has been growing and thriving in the German capital, with weekly classes and regular workshops and retreats abroad. In Spring 2018 we hit the road and will bring some of the Forrest Yoga magic to a city near you! :)
The theme for these workshops is BIG JOY!
How can we cultivate and welcome more JOY in to our lives?
What does Big Joy mean to you?
What are the thoughts / patterns / behaviours that prevent you from experiencing Joy in your life?
Through Ceremony, Song, Dance, Meditation and a 2 hour Forrest Yoga practice, we will play with our relationship to Joy, and dare to experience Big Joy...
The type of Joy that spreads a huge smile across your face, that erupts in laughter, welcomes Spirit home, the Joy that reveals who we truly are, and that accepts and revels in everything that is unique in all of us!
This workshop is available to anyone over the age of 18. And also all levels of yoga experience are welcome, from total beginners to seasoned teachers. This will be an all levels workshop.
About Forrest Yoga:
Created by Ana Forrest over the past 45 years, Forrest Yoga is an intensely physical practice that will make you sweat and ignite every cell in your body through deep breathing and powerful, healing poses.
Forrest Yoga teaches you to go deeper to find your truth, and encourages you to take these gifts you have earned beyond the mat and into the rest of your life.
Forrest Yoga honors and celebrates the beauty of life and the power of Spirit. It is an inspiring yoga practice that builds flexibility, intelligence and strength while helping deepen the relationship with your authentic self. Accessing your intuition - the voice of your Spirit - builds personal strength and ushers integrity into your daily interactions.
Forrest Yoga challenges you to heal, grow and welcome your Spirit home.
Forrest Yoga does not require strength or flexibility; it only requires a willingness to learn how to feel authentically and respond honestly. The practice is founded on four pillars -- Breath, Strength, Integrity and Spirit.
Forrest Yoga teaches you how to breathe deeply, connect in feeling with your body, use the power of breath to bring aliveness into every cell of your body and ignite your passion for living.
Forrest Yoga teaches you to connect to your core, to be strong and centered. The intense pose sequences are designed to help you develop the skills to awaken each of your senses. The long holds help you progress in the poses and go deeper. Aided by the use of heat, your body is freed from toxins; the deep breathing oxygenates and rejuvenates every cell in your body.
Forrest Yoga teaches you to become proficient at safely tailoring each pose to work best for you, particularly 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.
Forrest Yoga's intent is to create a sense of freedom, a connection to your Spirit and the courage to walk as your Spirit dictates.
About Tom, founder Yoga Boys Berlin:
For many years I was numb to Joy. I have experience with depression, social anxiety, substance misuse and addiction.
I realised that I was missing out on SO much pleasure in my life. I was too shy, nervous and anxious to embrace Joy and pleasure for myself. I depended on alcohol and drugs to dance in public and make social situations bearable and I missed out on Joy by incessantly worrying about what others thought of me.
Over time I grew intensely frustrated with this way of living. And through my regular Yoga practice I began to find the strength, confidence and clarity to welcome Joy and the full ecstatic spectrum of pleasure in to my life.
For me the path to Joy is one of truth, self discovery, empowerment, embracing everything that makes us who we are, our fears, our strengths, our secrets, our past, present and future, and coming together to support each other in feeling alive and connecting to Spirit!
One of my main missions as a Forrest Yoga teacher is to share my personal experiences to empower others to find their own path to Joy - whatever that means to you. After all life is short, life is precious, and it is to be explored and embraced in all its pain, wonder and beauty.
