Often described as the soul of the plant, aromatic essential oils will enhance your health, maintain and rejuvenate your skin for optimum radiance and youthfulness. Smooth fine lines, diminish wrinkles and hyper-pigmentation, deep cleanse, increase cellular turnover, and stimulate collagen production for a firmer more radiant appearance. Merging the healing arts with beauty and healing touch, you will be guided through gentle breath work, chakra meditation with chakra-specific organic aroma skincare, color visualization, and affirmations to ignite each of the seven major chakras or energy centers in the subtle body. Reconnect with your innate wisdom by tuning in and tuning up your chakra system. This session is deeply relaxing and grounding with a clear sense of connection with your higher self.
Let gravity do the work. Blankets and props are used to support you in effortless, comfortable yoga poses. This session involves pranayama or breath work, postures, and meditation. The concept is based on “less is more” gentle physical movement, guided chakra meditation, rest, and renewal to impart a deep sense of grounding in one’s core truths and values. This session imparts a clear sense of connection with your higher self and a new sense of ease in your body. Access a deeper connection to your higher self that can get clouded by modern life. Chakra restorative yoga is a meditative journey through the seven major chakra centers with seven chakra-specific organic aromas.
Based on the principle of less is more, the main purpose of restorative yoga is to trigger the parasympathetic nervous system which is responsible for balancing the body and bringing its response system back into equilibrium. The parasympathetic nervous system helps to lower blood pressure, lower heart rate, healthfully stimulate the immune system, and keep the endocrine system functioning well. You will be supported in passive postures where gravity does the work. You are guided through chakra-specific postures, color visualization, and affirmations, with aroma specific to each chakra. Aroma affects the limbic system of the brain, the happy “feel-good” mood center. Scientific studies have proven the “relaxation response” and the physical and emotional benefits that come from practicing restorative yoga. It can compliment a more vigorous yoga practice or workout activities. Also helpful when you feel fatigued or stressed, before or after major life events (death of a loved one, change of job or home, marriage, divorce, major holidays, vacations), or when you are ill, injured, or recovering. This is an ideal yoga session for Healing as well as Wellness retreat clients. Come prepared to be still and let go!
