These classes are based on the pillars of Forrest Yoga

  • Breath
  • Strength
  • Integrity
  • Spirit

The intent of the classes are to serve each person’s experience effectively and with care, so that they are resourced with practical and accessible tools to create and sustain a practice that meets their personal goals.

This class is appropriate for all bodies, all levels (including no experience) and for those recovering from illness and injury. Modifications will be given to support each person’s practice.

Each session will combine meditation, breathing and movement practices that strengthen the ability to feel and pay attention. By using 9 Basic Moves, participants will learn to design and soothe their internal environment, build a connection to their physical and energetic core and increase their breath capacity.

Recruiting Trans*-identified Mental Health Providers for Focus Groups

Recruiting Trans*-identified Mental Health Providers for Focus Groups


Happy New Year!


I am recruiting mental health clinicians who identify as trans/gender

non-conforming for focus group research as part of my MSW thesis. I am

exploring the issue of disclosure of gender identity and its impact on

the therapist¹s sense of efficacy, safety and well-being.


Focus Groups will be held:

-Sat. Jan. 25th, First Event Conference in Peabody, MA


-Sun., Jan. 26th, Jamaica Plain, MA

-Sat., Feb. 8th, New York, NY

-Sun, Feb. 9th, Northampton, MA


If you are a master¹s level clinician who identifies anywhere on the

Trans* spectrum and would like to participate in a 1.5-2 hour focus group

to discuss these issues with others, please contact me at or by phone at 802-578-8391.
