About Us

Donald Austin Forrest Yoga is a modern yoga style based on Hatha yoga. It was created by and named for Ana Forrest, an American yogini. It is known for “its long holding of positions, emphasis on abdominal core work, and standing series that can go on for 20 poses on each side”. Reputed for its intensity, the style emphasizes connecting to one’s feelings in order to work through physical and emotional trauma.

“My intent in teaching Yoga is
to do my part in healing the
Hoop of the People; to inspire
people to clear through the
stuff that hardens them and
sickens their bodies so they
can walk freely and lightly on
the earth in a healing way,
a Beauty Way.”
