The story is a personal one and the personal nature of how Ana Forrest came to achieve her own transformation is frankly shared. What she learned through this personal process is then taken to another level as she applies it to offer teaching and advise to others. One may or may not agree with what she has to say or like it or even respect it but in my opinion she does describe how she achieves Yoga or unity in her own personal journey, so beyond that it's really up to each individual reader to take what is relevant from her narrative and use it or not as suits them. Rating the experiences described as good, bad or indifferent is to be expected as Ana Forrest is a public figure who has forged a reputation for herself as a modern day Yoga guru. That being said respect in the expression of all such opinions is the job of everyone else who seeks to understand more about themselves though consideration of her story so in my book the honest sharing of that story is to be appreciated no matter what else the reader may think.
After reading the book I realized that her personality and struggles define Forest yoga more than poses.
Yes there are yoga poses and sequences included, but there is so much more.
