I am hugely passionate about Forrest Yoga, and I am very excited about the possibilities it offers to every single human being to become happier, healthier, stronger and more comfortable. It is a powerful tool for change and growth, and no matter how fit, how bendy, how strong you are I'm certain you'll find that life is always better with yoga in it!
I'm happy to answer any questions you may have!
All you need to start studying yoga is willingness! The exciting journey starts with however you feel right now.
Forrest Yoga helps you build strong muscles, which helps support your joints and prevent injury. You will also gain flexibility and balance.
Forrest Yoga can help you become stronger and more agile than you believe you can. You'll feel the benefits both on and off the mat.
Forrest Yoga helps counteract the harm we do by spending our days sitting down, hunched over a screen or steering wheel.
Hinny is a violinist and violin teacher, based in Oxford. She discovered Forrest Yoga while living in Newcastle upon Tyne, and found that it was an excellent way of easing the aches and pains of being a professional musician. In the classes she felt safe and supported, and she gained the tools she needed to heal her body and soothe her mind. Having never considered herself 'sporty', much to her surprise she found herself becoming physically strong and balanced, and she was delighted to discover a new confidence in herself.
When she moved to Oxford, Hinny missed Forrest Yoga so much that she decided to train as a teacher. She is super excited to share this unique and wonderful form of yoga with the people of Oxford, and to help other people experience its myriad benefits. In her spare time Hinny enjoys reading spy novels, knitting socks, and dancing. She has an MA in linguistics, specialising in syntax.
Definitely do it if you can. Hinny is a calm, warm tutor. I'm feeling much better aligned with lots to think about, thank you Hinny!
Absolutely recommend this. It's warm, slow, soothing and a very happy space. You will feel supple, tall and relaxed.
It was ace and super relaxing, and taught me things about muscles. And wasn't at all difficult or sweaty as I had feared. Thanks Hinny!
I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
