Aroma Yin & Yang at Retreat Yoga Studio
About this class
A flow sequence designed to ignite and stimulate the yang elements in our body and mind, followed by a yin based sequence, with longer holds of seated and reclined poses. The session is supported by and focused around essential oils. Yin and Yang describe complementary and opposite energies which are present everywhere - in everybody and everything. The principles of Chinese medicine are primarily based on this concept of two distinct forces. Yin is seen as feminine, dark, moist, cool, soft and receptive. It is associated with the earth and moon, autumn and winter, and the night. Yang is seen as masculine, light, dry, hot, hard and active. It is associated with the sun, spring and summer, and the day.A balance of both of these energies is very important to the well-being of an individual. If one or the other is in excess then there may be physical and mental problems. This is where aromatherapy can be beneficial.....it can work very well together with the Yin and Yang theory. Essential oils can be classified as yin or yang, according to their frequency (wavelength) and their notes, or the rate of evaporation. In this class, powerful and pure Essential Oils are weaved into the session with the intention to help students relax, restore and release, finding internal balance. Open to all levels.
