Essential Practice: Yoga with Essential Oils

Including essential oils in your yoga practice can add layers of richness. Over the course of six classes, this program will show you how you can use plant essences to anchor your practice to a specific emotional state. In each class, you’ll set an intention with a suggested oil, enjoy an asana sequence focused on that intent, then meditate with a second scent to seal the effects of your practice. You’ll also gather useful information about incorporating essential oils into your life off the mat. Essential oils used: tea tree, orange, peppermint, lemon, rosemary, frankincense, and fir.
