Put it on your September calendar: Yoga of Aroma workshop with Salvador at Abhyasa Yoga Center Brooklyn September 21st 6-9pm. Get a solid introduction to aromatherapy and essential oils. This workshop will cover history, quality, safety, and profiles of the “Lucky 13″, the most useful essential oils. You’ll make a custom blend in a carrier of jojoba oil. The Yoga of Aroma is intended for people new to essential oils and aromatherapy.
I came to this wonderful practice five years ago. In between teaching my yoga classes, I stumbled into Enfleurage NYC, a store specializing in essential oils and incense from all around the planet. That afternoon they were diffusing tuberose, and my nose got the best of me. From that day forward, I started to wear the oils as I taught. My students asked me what I was wearing and why. I just liked they way that they smelled and how it made me feel. I wanted and needed to find out more about the oils, so I started studying aromatherapy at Enfleurage. From there, my venture of Mighty Real Skin was born. It’s yoga in a bottle.
Sign up! Bring a friend! Let’s blend together! It’s going to be fun!
It’s Hot Fun In The Summertime with those lil’ yogis!
I’m teaching a summer course at a day camp, and let me tell you, it’s music to my ears when I walk into the room and see my lil’ niños All Fired Up for yoga. Some kids I’ve had previously over the years and some are brand new. There’s this one little boy, four years old, a total sweetie, who’s a bit freaked out being away from his parents all day, meeting new kids, and having a new ritual and a new pattern of living. Thusly, a new experience. He’s shy. He’s sensitive. I get it. I was the same way as a little boy. He was not feeling the first two weeks of yoga, but I kept coming and paid a attention to him. This week for yoga he was all ready to go! He made a beeline to his mat, sat down quietly, and was all smiles. He changed. I could see he was more confident and more secure, and he was a leader in class. Awesome!
This four year old little boy inspired me with my teaching and practice. He inspired me to keep on keeping on and smile. I couldn’t ask for anything more!
