Ana Forrest Interview | Jane’s Yoga Class


Ana Forrest Interview | Jane’s Yoga Class

This month Yoga Now has a terrific double-header for you. We have a rarely seen video interview with the extraordinary Ana Forrest. It’s less than 10 minutes long and has a lot of insight and power. A definite “must see”! In the next segment of the episode, we have some excellent excerpts of a class from the Burlington Yoga Conference taught by our own Jane Lanza. (continued below the 2 minute preview video)

For nearly 4 decades, Ana Forrest has been sharing her unique combination of yoga and emotional healing with people throughout the world. The benefit of her work extends beyond yoga students to include military personnel who have experienced all make and manner of emotional and physical trauma. Ana describes her work as “mending the hoop of the people”. That’s a reference to her strong influence by Native American healing methods and traditions.

Ana’s book, Fierce Medicine: Breakthrough Practices to Heal the Body and Ignite the Spirit was released in 2011. In the interview, Ana talks a bit about that.

Included in the interview, you get to watch Ana provide some guidance and healing on our host. That was quite unexpected during the interview and we were thrilled to get it on camera. The interview, originally recorded at a Wanderlust event was bonus content only available to premium members. Due to the power of this interview, we’re making it more broadly available.

Now for the 2nd part of this episode: The University of Vermont has been the home of the Burlington Yoga Conference for a number of years. During the most recent conference, we were lucky to have our cameras running during a morning class taught by Jane Lanza. The room was packed and live music was performed by Yogi Patrick McAndrew.

We’ve pulled together a few interesting clips of the class to give you the flavor and feel of what the participants enjoyed. We were able to highlight one of the students to serve as a model for many of the poses during the class. I think you’ll enjoy the short overview video of the class.
