Freedom is something we earn, not something that is handed to us. This month-long series will teach you to be free from struggle on your mat so that you can be free from struggle in life. Through this Forrest Yoga practice, we use inversions as a means to uncover emotional and mental roadblocks and build self-respect, self-esteem and undeniable strength.

I created Forrest Yoga over four decades ago because Struggle and Fear all too often dictate and direct our lives. Because we often disconnect ourselves from them, it can be difficult to see how they impact us on a daily basis. This method exposes both so they no longer have a place to hide.

This plan is sequenced so that you practice inversions and arm balances in four 30-minute and one hour-long class every week. Whether you’re new to going upside down or not, we all have a “no-go” zone. I will show you how to embrace moments of struggle and fear in order to achieve deep, multifaceted growth. You will learn to break free from the chains that hold you back not only in your practice but in how you approach your life!

"I love it! This plan is one of the most grounding yet creative inversion-oriented practices I’ve ever done. It opens, unclogs and strengthens all at the same time. The sequences are progressive, and Ana is a very intelligent guide that encourages a calm breath and teaches practical ways to heal and find ease in struggle!"

"Ana’s series captured and touched me. I even went hunting for her book “Fierce Medicine,” which was mind blowing and tremendously powerful! Even though the struggle-free handstand was my goal when starting this plan, now it’s simply a nice “plus” in addition to a much greater enrichment. Thanks, Ana. I love your work and your style :-)"
