All About Yoga
Aside from all the hashtags and trending buzz, yoga is a deeply spiritual experience. It calls for you to explore the depths of the physical, mental, and spiritual practices that bring peace and harmony to the planet.
Yoga cleanses the body and mind. By incorporating a variety of techniques, ranging from controlled breaths to intricate postures/poses known as asanas, yoga takes a holistic stance on helping you discover the limitless the power shared in our human experience.
The Magic of Aromatherapy
In many ways, aromatherapy mirrors yoga. Each are ancient traditions that share profound mental, physical, and spiritual relief. Both present a pathway that can help you redefine your outlook and transform your perspective. Rather than manipulating the body in specially arranged ways, aromatherapy makes use of natural essential oils extracted from herbs and plants. (Many may be in your very own garden!)
The essence of spiritually enriching plant-based ingredients is captured, then transmitted in a way that immerses you in a sensory stimulating experience.
Aromatherapy encourages the olfactory system to utilize your sense of smell to trigger certain reactions in the brain. Believe it or not, our sense of smell is one of the strongest of all human senses. In fact, by catching the scent of the right aroma, you can release neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine; the natural hormones associated with relaxation and a higher state of well-being.
Just like yoga, aromatherapy can help detoxify the mind, body, and soul of harmful toxins and negative energies, leaving you feeling refreshed, calm, balanced, and focused.
Aromatherapy Enhances Yoga
It is no surprise that many yogis have taken the added benefits of aromatherapy and applied it to their practice. Yoga practitioners vastly multiply the benefits of the ancient therapy by allowing aromatic essences to bring balance and harmony to their environment.
Essential oils release a powerful aroma that can whisk you away into an otherworldly state of mind. The blissful combination naturally magnifies your yoga practice at home or in the studio. Aromatherapy helps you peacefully visualize tranquil settings that promote deep meditative frequencies. Fill your space with intoxicating all-natural fragrances that relax your being, as it slips away into boundless states of euphoria.
Imagine being engaged in your daily yoga session while inhaling the fragrance of fresh flowers and cool mountain air. With the right aromatic combination, you’ll be treated to an invigorating experience that revitalizes you down to the tiniest cells.
If you incorporate chakra therapy inspired by ancient Indian beliefs, enhance your daily yoga routine through essential oils that can help you stimulate the seven centers of spiritual energy in your body. Balancing your chakras brings an unparalleled sense of peace and calm. Let aromatherapy catalyze this transformation in partnership with other ancient traditions.
