The next time you walk by a garden of fresh lavender, pass a rose bush or hike through a pine forest, breathe deeply—you’re experiencing the soul-soothing power of essential oils. But essential oils are more than nice scents; these powerful plant extracts are your path to the natural radiance and health…natures finest medicine.
Essential oils have been used for thousands of years for cosmetic and medicinal purposes, as well as for their spiritually and emotionally uplifting properties. Primarily extracted through careful steam distillation but also through cold pressing, the purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they were extracted. Each scent is the very heart of nature’s pure essence.
Yin Yoga and Aromatherapy : Inspiring a positive emotional state
Each essential oil’s complex, pleasant, and unique scent activates the limbic system—the brain’s centre of emotion and memory differently. Essential oils mixed with soothing music and a carefully targeted Yin Yoga practice, can be your key to a more fulfilling and balanced emotional life. Whilst also soothing away pain, stress and tension.
Our Sensory Yin Yoga workshops and retreats are designed to help you rediscover peace, balance, and joy, as we use essential oils and blends for diffusion, massage, inhalation, or topical application. Joined with meditative music and deep release Yin Yoga asanas.
Modern lifestyles don’t always create optimal conditions for physical wellness. Poor diet, poor posture, lack of exercise, and an overabundance of environmental toxins can leave the body unbalanced and diminish energy levels. Activating our deep senses, helping to support every system of the body. Incense and essential oils from plants have always played an important part in religious and spiritual ceremonies, helping participants to transcend the trivial and connect with something larger than themselves. Research shows that the pure constituents in pure essential oils stimulate olfactory receptors and activate regions in the brain’s limbic system associated with memory, emotion, and state of mind. We use these pure essential oils to enhance our physical and spiritual practice, applying meditative, empowering essential oils directly to wrists, feet, and our third eye chakra point, or diffuse in our quiet yoga space.
