Yoga Forager represents a way of being that invites one to live in the physical world from a perspective of abundance, prioritization of nourishment for the mind, body and soul, and authentic connection to oneself, others and nature.

Abundance -

  • Trust that nature provides in abundance. Savor all that life has to offer. In the wisdom of an ethic of foraging take only what you need.

Nourishment -

  • Self-care is foundational to well-being. A regular yoga practice allows people of all ages and abilities to integrate an intuitive understanding of what self-care is for them.

CONNECTIon -

  • As we integrate connection within we are better equipped to embrace the outside world with oneness and compassion. Yoga connects us to our true nature granting us ease and joy.
