Cultivating Peace & Emotional Freedom with Essential Oils & Yoga
Are you in control of your emotions or do they control you? Is it difficult for you to shift out of a negative state? Do you find yourself repeatedly reacting with the same painful emotions to certain situations despite your best efforts? We usually develop defenses against these negative energies, repressing them within us. Eventually, physical or emotional imbalances will arise to the surface.
In this 2 hour workshop, we will learn about how our limbic system - the 'seat of emotions’ - is affected by smell. Essential oils can be powerful tools to achieve emotional balance by affecting the limbic system as well as raising the frequency in our bodies. Yoga is a practice that allows us to face our fears, which is the ultimate source of many negative energies. In moving through Yoga poses, activating our limbic system with essential oils and topically on specific points on the body while saying affirmations, we hope to get a glimpse of our peaceful core and the experience of emotional freedom within the pauses of activity.
After a circle time of about 20 minutes, we will go through a series of Yoga and Polarity exercises using essential oils. The workshop will end with a 10 minute meditation.
