Tip Tuesday: Where to Find Out More About Forrest Yoga

Tip Tuesday is a weekly feature where I offer a few yoga tips that have worked for me in the hopes that they can help you too.

When students ask me more about Forrest Yoga, I share with them and usually them to the Forrest Yoga website for more information. It’s a good place to start to find out more about the Forrest Yoga mission, find local teachers and see upcoming events. In addition, there’s a ton of Forrest Yoga resources out there beyond this site. Here’s many that are worth checking out:
