WHAT is included within the workshop?
This is a 3.5- hour workshop that includes a Yin Yoga class by candlelight (can you think of a better way to spend a Sunday?(massaging, learning about and experiencing the power of essential oils. The 3.5 hours will include a 1.5-hour introduction to essential oils, specifically those that are beneficial for cleansing and detoxing your body, plus an understanding of how to naturally aid your body’s ability to cleanse and detox (lots of practical tips given).
The next 2 hours is a Yin Yoga session that includes the use of a multitude of carefully thought through essential oils as well as individual massage (about 10 minutes of massage per person).
A few more details below:
Yin Yoga is an internal practice which focuses on slowly and mindfully entering poses and holding those poses for longer periods of time. We invite a soft flow of breath into the body, allowing our body to naturally open up as the pose evolves. In Yin Yoga we apply moderate stress to the connective tissues, increasing flexibility to the body whilst releasing tension along our energetic pathways. We embrace this meditative practice bringing light to the darker corners of the body.
Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. The aroma travels immediately into the part of the brain that houses memory and emotions. The scent is processed, releasing neuro chemicals that can be relaxing, stimulating or sedative, depending on the essential oil being used. When you apply the oils topically to specific pulse points: wrists, behind the ears, the third eye, etc you can also experience the effects on many other levels such as hormonal, digestive and lymphatic, just to name a few.
The power of touch should never be under-estimated! Massage helps the physical body by removing knots and adhesions in the muscles, releasing tension but also nourishing and supporting the emotional-self.
Yin Yoga, Essential Oils and massage harmonise perfectly with each other – providing all of the senses with what they need to move into balance. At the end of the session Aimee and Rosie hope you will walk (or float) away with more knowledge about essential oils but equally a feeling of tranquility and rejuvenation that is second-to-none.
