Essentially Speaking with Teja Shanti Kaur
Gifts of the Earth
I’m so excited to introduce to you the doTerra line of Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential oils now being sold at the studio!
Why did Live In Joy Yoga & Wellness choose to use doTerra essential oils?
Not only do they smell good, but these natural, therapeutic aromatic compounds are quite literally “Gifts of the Earth.” Among the many properties of these amazing oils, the properties I will focus on is how we can weave in the harmonizing earth element of nature into our yoga practice. The use of essential oils to enhance and complement the yoga practice dates back thousands of years and originated in India.
Essential oils assist us in balancing the body, mind and spirit helping to remind us of the peace that surrounds and supports us in each moment if we take the time to “smell the oils.” Adding doTerra oils to your yoga practice creates a powerful synergy by assisting the student’s ability to tame the mind through the body. By using essential oils into the practice we create a “scent memory.” Scent becomes a powerful emotional healing tool, helping the student connect to the breath and recall the moment of presence on their yoga mat.. After all if you are like me then you know our yoga mat often can become our “magic carpet.”
