About Forte Yoga

At the core, the word forte means “one’s strong point.” We believe yoga is everyone’s “strong point” — in many cases, simply locked away deep inside, until someone or something is inspirational enough to uncover it. Our saying is For The Expressions; not only is yoga expressive in terms of exercise, but it’s also an artistic expression for many.

With all of its deep history and recent adaptations, it is incredibly hard to find comprehensive information about everything yoga. Forte’s goal is to compile, enhance and present all of the yoga information out there in an accessible, honest and current way.
