Ana Forrest and Jose Calarco, Forrest Yoga

Ana Forrest has been changing people’s lives for over 45 years. She is an internationally recognized pioneer in yoga and emotional healing.

She is the Creatrix of Forrest Yoga, a mystic, visionary, philanthropist, author of Fierce Medicine: Breakthrough Practices to Heal the Body and Ignite the Spirit, and Medicine Woman. Ana crafted Forrest Yoga while working through healing from her own life’s traumas – abuse and addictions. The process of healing herself inspired her to teach others about what really works to heal themselves physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

Forrest Yoga is an exquisite collaboration between Ana and her husband Jose Calarco. He is our Musical Shaman, embodying and bringing alive ancient spiritual technologies, like Aboriginal culture through stories and song. He also teaches on the intelligence of the Vegan lifestyle and is the creative director of Forrest Yoga.

Today Ana and Jose are at the forefront of the Yoga world, guiding its future and evolution. Together, Ana and Jose teach people how to use the tools of Forrest Yoga to move out numbness and connect to the rich spectrum of feeling and purpose.

Ana is the recipient of a Los Angeles Mayoral Commendation recognizing her outstanding teaching and healing work in the community, the first time a major U.S. city bestowed such an honor on a yogi or yogini.
