Igniting Your Creative Fire: Forrest Yoga & Journalling


Igniting Your Creative Fire: Forrest Yoga + Journalling Workshop

Location: Manor Farm, Upton Cheyney, BS30 6NQ
Cost: £35 per yogi

A Half Day Retreat into the countryside just 45 minutes outside of Bristol city centre.  

The venue of our annual Campout, Manor Farm holds it’s own kind of magic. Surrounded by the sounds of Autumn nature, we will sink into a juicy 2 hour Forrest Yoga practice. Beginning with ceremony, song and strong fiery asana. After lighting up our bones with the practice we will take this inspiration to the page, exploring creative exercises over warming cups of tea and raw chocolate.

If the weather is kind to us, we will then wrap up and sit around the firepit, using the flames to ritually purge what we do not need and light up what we wish to intensify, otherwise we will venture to the barn and talk by candlelight. We will share stories (both mythical, fantastical and if called to, personal) and a simple bowl of vegan soup to warm us through.

When booking, please let me know of any dietary requirements. All props will be provided, but if you have your own mat please bring it. An extra cosy wrap or coat to warm you by the fire would also be useful. If there is a particular story or poem you would like to share, feel free to bring it with you to share around the fire.

What is Forrest Yoga?

Inspired by Ana Forrest's Yoga, this is a full workout that builds flexibility, intelligence and strength while helping deepen the relationship with our authentic selves. Accessing our intuition - the voice of our Spirit - builds personal strength and ushers integrity into our daily interactions with all beings. Expect challenge, inversions and deep abdominal work to begin the class - to get you strong, centred and connecting you to you deepest core.

Your Teacher

Ash loves to tell stories, explore them, and ask what they mean. The thing is, we’ve all got a story that will break your heart, make you sigh, make you fall off your chair in tears of laughter and joy. What is ours? Where is it held in our bodies? And how, as teachers, do we help our students illuminate their own stories – help hold them up to the light and help embrace what is found there?

4 years studying Classics at Oxford, a few years after as an English teacher, one book published and with another in the works has given Ash notebooks full of daydreams, a bookshelf full of fairytales and a handy flair for weaving a tale.

Story is one of Ash’s most useful tools for teaching Yoga. Her toolkit is varied however – bodywork, inversions, partner work, animal walks, singing, silliness, journalling, a kick-ass playlist, a juicy yoga nidra… all find their place, depending on the students that she meets on the mat that day. With these tools Ash hopes to gently guide her students to a place of visceral connection that feels authentic, intuitive and deeply healing.
