deniseleslieassist_zenfolio_optRefine your teaching and reignite your passion In this one day workshop. This is an excellent opportunity to build confidence in your hands, learn new assists, connect with other teachers in your community. As teachers, it is crucial to take ourselves out of our own box in order to shift perspective, gain new insights and become inspired. We must step outside of ourselves in order to see ourselves. Whether you are a brand new teacher or have been at it for years, you will leave with lots of new tools to incorporate into your teaching and your life. OPEN TO TEACHERS OF ALL STYLES AND LEVELS.  ALSO OPEN TO STUDENTS CURRENTLY ENROLLED IN A TEACHER TRAINING COURSE.











 Formula for Change Retreat Weekend at Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY

Forrest Yoga Formula for Change provides clear and effective tools for embracing healthy and effective shifts in your life—such as working through the end of a relationship, or contemplating a new job.

Guided by experienced Forrest Yoga instructors, you experience the four-step transformational process of a Formula for Change through a blend of asana practice and pranayama exercises, Native American ceremony, chanting, meditation, and journal writing. You learn to:

  • Notice when you are repeating unwanted behavior
  • Pause and stop negative behavior
  • Give yourself positive reinforcement for catching the behavior
  • Move forward with different actions

Forrest Yoga Formula for Change helps you discover what needs to change in your life, and how to bring that change to fruition.  Join is for this transformative weekend!
