My yoga journey

Forrest Yoga with Jambo 

on October 6, 2015

The first class in my weekend of four classes was a workshop with Jambo at Lululemon. Jambo is a very experienced Forrest Yoga and anatomy teacher. I love his style it’s very direct and it encourages you to try every move even if you don’t think you can manage it. I couldn’t make the workshop that he was teaching on Saturday that sounded great but I’m going to try to make it to the next one that he’s in Edinburgh for.

I was really surprised at how quite this class was, there were about 15 people in a space that can hold 40 but it meant we got to do more. I suppose Friday evening is a difficult time but it was a really nice class and free so I guess I thought people would make more of an effort to make it along.
The class started with an explanation of what Forrest Yoga was and then went into practice. One of the main differences between Forrest Yoga and my normal yoga is the emphasis on having active feet. It really makes a huge difference to the leg muscles and how deep you can get into poses.
The class ended with some partner work including a way of doing handstand walkovers using all wall that I’m going to try again. To cool down we did some nice partner stretches and it was a really nice start to the weekend.
Also Vita Coco gave out coconut water before class which was a nice touch. Lululemon in Edinburgh are really good at organising different classes and special workshops and every time I really enjoy them so I’m going to make more of an effort to make it along to them.
