I wrote Fierce Medicine with the deep desire, that this book will touch people everywhere, even the ones I don’t get to meet.
This book is the spiritual legacy of my life and contains the treasures that saved my life. I invite you to use the tools in ‘Fierce’ that Iʼve developed and discovered. THEY WORK!
Each of you is precious beyond words, you are worth caring for and fighting for. You embody a part of the Great Mystery. Live from this truth.
Fierce Medicine (and Forrest Yoga) teaches you how to design your life into your personal masterpiece — something that you can be proud of.
These are my gifts to you.


Ana Forrest has been a pioneer spirit in excavating the truths of our embodied experience. Like never before, she has courageously opened her life to share her own powerful healing experience through yoga as a way of liberating all beings to follow their own authentic journey of mending the sacred wheel of their life through breath, body, and spirit.

As a teacher, this is a book that I would certainly share with my students, but as a student myself, there is much in this book that will aid in my own growth and for that I am grateful. I highly recommend this book to all seekers on the path.

Fierce Medicine is a journey from the wounded to the healed soul using the grace and elegance of yoga as a guide. Only a master teacher like Ana Forest, renowned for her ferocious determination, could accomplish such a rigorous task. Ana Forest has given us all the best of herself in this book.

I was lucky to have had Ana Forrest introduce me to the yoga experience many years ago. It transformed my life in such a positive way that I can suggest here that should the reader not be able to attend a ‘live’ session with Ana, getting into Fierce Medicine would definitely be the next best thing.
