The EssentialYoga Program at Knox Farm: BALANCE | Creating Optimal Health

August's Workshop: BALANCE-Creating Optimal Health

This gentle Vinyasa Flow was sequenced to afford a slower-paced experience of the integration of oils, movement and breath. As the body continues to warm, it will act as it's own diffuser, allowing the benefits of each oil to permeate fully. The collection of oils for this class was chosen form doTERRRA's AromaTouch Technique. To help support the body's system to function optimally, we layer eight essential oils and blends in response to stress, increased toxin levels, inflammation and autonomic nervous system imbalance. Paired with yoga, the oils help the body and mind move toward a holistic state of being.

EssentialYoga & Live Music - ALIGNMENT

In our March Workshop, we use essential oils and yoga poses specifically designed to create holistic alignment. The selection of oils and the order in which they are used is designed to move stagnant energy, detoxify the body, calm the mind, relax the body and restore equilibrium.  A head to toe restorative practice of long held yin poses with a focus on breath, sensation and stillness teaches the power of scent memory. One-to-two minute hold times starting at the neck, shoulder and wrist then moving to the feet, ankles, thighs, and hips begins the process of calming the mind. Moving to the center of the body with passive yin poses held two and five minutes begins the process of relaxing the body.  A long, final relaxation combined with the Balance Blend allows the body to assimilate this powerful practice and 'align with the core of our being'.
