ABOUT KIKI & MICHELLE:
A joyful and shimmering Spirit, Kiki is known amongst the Guardians for her trustworthiness, integrity and sparkle. r deep love and respect for Forrest Yoga Ceremony, her highly attuned eeing ills and direct, kind Truth-Speaking make her a uniquely skilled Mentor Teache. Through her work in Forrest Yoga and her recent journey into motherhood, she has learned how to see the magic and mystery in what seems quite ordinary and is passionate about teaching her Mentees how to do the same. As Owner and Director of Education at Innerstellar Pilates & Yoga, Kiki rings to the FYMP her expertise in leadership, business and career development, physical and energetic anatomy instruction and empathic hands on healing.
Michelle brings to the FP her fiercely curious, kind heart and her prowess as a hands on healer and energy worker. A dedicated yogini for over twenty years, Michelle has worked with Ana Forrest extensively since 2002 and is stepping into an even bigger leadership role now as a Guardian-in-Training. It is one of her life’s passions to train yoga teachers, and she has thousands of hours of experience doing so as both Assistant and Lead Teacher Trainer. Her thoughtfulness and humor provide a profound playground for her trainees to integrate new pathways of learning, healing and personal growth.
Kiki is a masterful Forrest Yoga teacher but it is the maternal, honest, and direct leadership qualities that she possesses that set her apart. Her loving guidance provided a safe space to dance with emotions and personal stories that I rarely acknowledge or will quickly shy away from. She will empower you to face your struggles head on through the discomfort. Her sparkly personality, unabashed honesty and zest for life makes you want to do this work and you will come out the other side so much better as a result.

The Mentorship Program was a way for me to stay connected to the benefits and magic of Forrest Yoga, deepening both my practice and teaching as well as holding me accountable to use those tools and show up for myself. Kiki possesses the rare combination of compassion and honesty. She sees you, truly sees you and meets you where you are to challenge you to grow and become your best self."
