On Saturday, I had the amazing opportunity to attend a workshop on backbending led by Forrest Yoga Guardian, Erica Mather. She is a Madison native, and currently teaches in New York. Forrest Yoga, founded by Ana Forrest, has always interested me. It's a very specific type of yoga that was founded on four main pillars: breath, strength, integrity, and spirit. Forrest Yoga is physically and mentally challenging. It also has a large healing component, which I love.

Though I am not currently teaching yoga at a studio, I read much of the yogic literature I have from both a teacher and student perspective. As some of you may know, I have been reading Forrest Yoga creator, Ana T. Forrest's book, Fierce Medicine: Breakthrough Practices: to Heal the Body and Ignite the Spirit. There is so much in this book I identify with and love, but yesterday, while reading I came across something Ms. Forrest and I greatly differ on.
