Enjoy the unique FORREST Yoga class in Lisbon with Hilke!
Forrest Yoga, named after its founder Ana Forrest, is rooted in Hatha yoga and has been adapted for modern Western bodies. It helps heal neck stiffness, back pain, and carpal tunnel syndrome-common computer-related problems associated with our modern lifestyles - to just name a few.
Forrest Yoga is a holistic system for healing. It uses deep breathing, postures, and hands-on assists to deepen your connection to your body. It helps you feel how beautifully your mind, heart, and body work together as a team instead of suppressing one for another. Emotions can be brought to the surface and released, while the holding of postures increases strength and flexibility.
Hilke did her teacher training with Ana in Hong Kong in the year 2013 . She has been teaching the past three years in Australia, Northern Europe as well as Brazil. Her home and heart is now in Lisbon where she created a permanent base for herself and introduces Forrest Yoga to the community. She also finished a Mentorship Program with Forrest Yoga Guardian Sinhee Ye-McCabe and is trained in Bodywork with Jambo Truong and Brian Campbell. She is a Yoga Alliance and Forrest Yoga Level 2 certified teacher.
