Align, center and connect to bliss in our 2.5 hour Chakras and Essential Oils class!
What are the chakras? And how can you deepen your connection to them by using essential oils?
In Sanskrit, chakra means wheel. The body has seven main chakras that are like energetic spinning wheels located along the spine from the tailbone to the crown of the head. The chakras are the body's main physical, mental and spiritual centers; together they form the pathway to healing, rejuvenation and growth. When you combine sacred plant medicine, along with chakra-aligned yoga poses, you invite health and vitality into your whole being and you deepen your ability to access divine wisdom.
Please join us for this special two and a half hour workshop to create alignment in the physical body through yoga poses that are specific to each chakra, and to create a deeper connection to these chakras by using organic essential oils.This will be a complete mind-body-spirit practice from your head to your toes. It does not matter if you have any prior yoga experience, you can use the chakras and essential oils to attain balance -- a state of harmony and equilibrium -- in all areas of your life.
Each participant will receive their own set of organic essential oils!
Please note USDA certified organic essential oils will be used in a variety of ways during this class, from topical application to diffusion. Featured oils will include: Lavender, Frankincense, Eucalyptus, Lemon, Chamomile, Helichrysum, Rosemary, Sweet Orange, Cedarwood and Jojoba.
