Aroma Yin is designed for anyone with physical, mental, emotional or spiritual needs. This is a class exploring the classics of change where we learn to understand change, create change, and move with change. In this class students will experience their emotions surface and how their emotions move energy of the universe or in one's Self. According to Chinese medicine and philosophy Yin is the emotional experience (yielding and passive), where Yang is its expression. Postures are held longer and usually work on the area from the navel to the knees. I typically focus on the lower body because as we age these are the areas that tighten up the most. As with yoga, essential oils and plant extracts have been used for thousands of years to heal and balance the body, mind, and spirit. Therefore, combining essential oils and yin yoga can offer new and powerful insights to physical, mental and emotional benefits, both on and off the mat. Using essential oils provides a true vibrational healing tool.
