Forrest Yoga has been an essential component of my own healing process for more than a decade. I have recovered and rehabilitated from shoulder, foot and knee surgeries, IBS, concussion, depression and cancer. I believe painful conditions can change and shift towards healing through committed practice, breath, patience, and acceptance.
