Enhance your Yoga practice with Essential oils! Aromatic oils have been used for thousands of years not only for their fragrance but (can be used) for culinary, therapeutic, ritual, and Spiritual purposes. Smell, our most primitive sense, is the only sense that extends directly into the brain and is an essential component of our physical and emotional health.
During this class we will diffuse and learn how to incorporate essential oils into our daily lives and yoga practice. We will have a brief discussion on the history of essential oils and their benefits, and other fun facts followed by a relaxing, gentle yoga asana and pranayama (breathing exercises) practice during which we will incorporate aromatic diffusion/application of a few popular oils.
Please bring a yoga mat and whatever yoga props you use.
Space is limited, so registration is required to participate in this unique yoga class!
