Yoga with Tom


Yoga retreat with Tom Barber

Retreat details

Join Tom for a very special week together at the spectacular Vale de Moses retreat deep in the lush valleys of rural Portugal and discover the power of Forrest Yoga.

Forrest Yoga is a physical, dynamic and profoundly healing practice lovingly crafted by Ana Forrest for over 40 years. If you like Vinyasa Flow, Power Yoga, Ashtanga or Jivamukti then you will LOVE Forrest Yoga!

The 4 Pillars of Forrest Yoga are Breath, Strength, Integrity and Spirit. The practice weaves together ancient and modern techniques to empower you on your healing path. Much of what we practice in Forrest Yoga will feel very familiar to you - but some poses and sequences are totally unique to Forrest Yoga.

It’s a fun, challenging, and exhilarating practice - come see for yourself :) During our week together we will also explore and play with different ways of embracing joy in our daily lives. We will sing, dance, swim in nature, gaze at the stars, eat delicious food, meditate, hike through the hills, and of course practice Forrest Yoga every morning together.

What is YOUR relationship to joy? Would you like to invite MORE Joy in to your life? The pursuit and exploration of Joy has brought so much strength, freedom, confidence and FUN in to my life over the past few years.

Teacher

I walked into my very first Yoga class on a weekend trip to Amsterdam 12 years ago. Since then I have explored different styles including Bikram, Ashtanga, Power Vinyasa Yoga and now I teach the intensely physical and healing Forrest Yoga, a modern, dynamic practice carefully crafted by Ana Forrest over the past 40 years.

Forrest Yoga ignites every cell in my body. I love the intensity and the emphasis on personal freedom, intuition, and connection to spirit and the authentic self. Yoga has brought wonderful healing to my life. I was once in a very different place. I struggled with addiction, depression and social anxiety. I felt lost and disconnected from myself and the world around me.

Through regular Yoga practice I started to heal, nourish and respect my body and bring joy and presence into my life. Yoga for me is an exhilarating, joyful and at times painful journey of growth and self discovery - I love every second.

I completed my 200hr teacher training in 2014 in London at Hot Power Yoga with world-class instructors Dylan Ayaloo and Craig Norris. I then trained with modern Yoga pioneer Ana Forrest in the UK and completed the 200hr Level 1 Foundation Training, and in Spring 2017 I completed the Forrest Yoga Advanced Training with Ana in Calgary.

I love to dance! I was one of the founders of the pre-work sober rave experience - Morning Gloryville Berlin. As well as Yoga learning how to dance sober has had a profound impact on my life. Through Yoga, dance and healthy living I bring power and presence to my life and to yours.

I've been fortunate to travel all over the world, from filming sled dog racing in Alaska to climbing mountains in Kenya and Patagonia and the Himalayas. I'm very happy to call Berlin home now.
