21 Dec Davana May
Flower and Flow is a gentle Vinyasa yoga class incorporating the use of Aromatherapy. Aromatherapy is a practice using essential oils to enhance the quality of everyday living and facilitate the healing of mind, body, spirit. Aromatherapy is already a part of our everyday living, although we may not have called it by this name. Everyone who has the sense of smell has had emotional responses to certain scents. Scents keep us connected to the mother earth and is one of our most powerful senses, vital to our survival. Essential oils are gems of nature, the soul of the plant; each drop a precious jewel to be savored, enjoyed, and protected. Like yoga, aromatic plants were used by the most ancient civilizations. Remembering and Awakening to the benefits of yoga and aromatherapy as an art, a science, and a lifestyle is a connection to and a reclamation of our roots.
