Essential Yoga with Suzanne Dismukes and Toni Loy
January 19 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Essential Yoga is for EVERYONE. The Essential Yoga workshop is adaptable to suit a variety of yoga experiences and abilities. All levels welcome! Students will be guided through a vigorous asana practice paired with various scented Essential Oils known to help flush, detox and strengthen your body! In January, our focus will be “Vision”. The combinations of specific asanas and EO’s have been designed to facilitate the activation of your best “Vision” for the New Year. Join us to learn and experience how Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils can be a true vibrational healing tool which positively effects mood and emotion on a conscious as well as subconscious level. EO’s will be diffused for Aromatherapy, EO-infused Spring Water will be available to quench your thirst, and EO’s will be offered to apply to various parts of your body to enhance your yoga practice!
Essential oils are so much more than a pretty scent! The aromas of the various essential oils are therapeutically powerful and when applied to the skin or inhaled aromatically through the nose, their chemistry can create a beneficial impact on the limbic system. The limbic lobe in the brain is capable of directly activating the hypothalamus – often referred to as the “master gland” – which acts as the hormonal control center affecting everything from sex drive to energy levels. By combining the use of EO’s with a yoga practice in this workshop, we activate and utilize the limbic system when we create a “scent memory”. This helps you later to connect to your breath and recall the moment of presence you experienced on your mat when you use those same oils outside of the class.
BRING A GLASS OR STAINLESS WATER BOTTLE FOR EO-INFUSED SPRING WATER THAT WILL BE OFFERED
