I recently started teaching a new yoga class series called Aroma Flow here in Los Angeles. This is a trauma-informed restorative yoga class (I will get more into what that means in later posts) with essential oils.
My goal with this class (because yall know my Virgo brain always has a reason) is to provide a healing yoga experience that is focused on the breath rather than the body or physical abilities to allow the nervous system to relax. Additionally, I’m on a mission to educate the community about the healing power of essential oils by providing a hands-on experience
Each week the class will include a new essential oil and yoga flow to support our body and minds in new ways.
For our very first class last week we enhanced our practice with a classic and fan favorite, Lavender Essential Oil.
The simple act of inhaling Lavender helps to decrease the fight-flight-freeze response (also known as our stress response) in the body’s nervous system by enhancing relaxation on our mind and body. This helps to decrease blood pressure, heart rate, and body temperature which can in turn:
- Reduce stress
- Reduce anxiety
- Improve sleep quality
- Decrease restlessness
- Decrease inflammation
Now if that doesn’t make you want some Lavender Oil in your life, I don’t know what will! Get yours today!
This is just a short list of the many wellness effects Lavender Essential Oil can have on the body. To learn more see these resources:
Join us for the next Aroma Flow class to enjoy the healing effects of essential oils and yoga! Class takes place every Thursday evening.
