Chakra Bliss Aromatherapy Restorative Yoga
with Tiina Kivinen and Angella Windrem
Date and Time: Wednesday, June 1, 7 – 8:30pm
Price: $45 + HST
Join Tiina and Angella for a restorative-style yoga class integrating a journey through the Chakras (energy centres in the physical/emotional/ energetic body), using aromatherapy essential oils to deepen and enhance the exploration. We carefully choose yoga postures and essential oils that correspond with each Chakra to carry you through a journey of self-inquiry, deep rest, and healing. Essential oils have the potential to deepen your focus and enhance your awareness through the yoga experience, with the added benefit of the healing qualities of each aroma. No experience is needed, all are welcome, unless you have a sensitivity or allergy to essential oils.
During the pandemic, we will be guiding this class following physical distancing and avoiding touch. We still have many ways to enjoy aromatherapy benefits, including self-massage, diffusing, smudging, and more.
