Balance Your SELF

Chakra Exploration

By using the principles of the chakras you can examine and begin to recognize where your body and emotions are out of balance. Bringing focus to your yoga asana practice combined with the use of essential oils can balance the areas of your body and life that need it. You will learn about the chakra system, and essential oils & how they work on the body & mind, to improve overall health and well-being. We will then explore 7 essential oils specifically selected to target the 7 main chakras , and unearth the many versatile ways we can incorporate them into our daily yoga practice for overall wellness.

Heal Your SELF

Ayurveda and Yoga 

Ayurveda is the sister science to yoga and is often referred to as the Science of Life. We are each made up of a unique constitution of the three Doshas, which provide us with our greatest strengths and greatest challenges as we move through life. Each Dosha exhibits and holds attributes which have specific activities and structures in the body and the mind. With regular and mindful observation, we learn to understand their activity and presence in our body-mind. When a Dosha is in excess, or disharmony, certain conditions may occur. The goal is to provide healing activities and exercises, natural substances and external stimuli which will restore the natural balance. We will begin with a questionnaire to determine your predominant Dosha, and then explore all three Doshas combined with yoga asanas and essential oils to bring healing to your body.
