Sensing Within is a workshop using therapeutic grade essential oils to enhance the energetic benefits and experience of Yoga.
It is an opportunity to balance body, mind and spirit with the natural, harmonising earth element of plants. By tuning in to the powerful combination of Yoga and essential oils, our personal experience is taken to a much deeper level. Things we embody in our Yoga practice, like inner strength, gratitude, surrender, we can help to shift on a cellular level using essential oils.
Yoga is a way to release the physical tension and energetic blockages that can otherwise impact on our overall wellbeing. It is a practice to keep the body and mind happy and healthy. By moving the body in a particular way, or creating a specific shape, we encourage blood flow, alternating contraction and release of muscles, stimulation of the nervous system, which all support the release of tension and stagnant energy. When we feel more at ease in our bodies, it can be easier to find ease of mind.
The yoga practices incorporated into this workshop include guided meditation, Calligraphy Yoga, slow flow and restorative yoga.
Essential oils help to support us emotionally in the same way. They enable us to access stored memories and suppressed emotions, which will have left an energetic imprint and even caused physical tension. Bringing this to the surface allows us to acknowledge them, integrate what we need, and let go of what no longer serves us. A single oil may contain hundreds of constituents that are molecularly aligned in exactly the right way to support the human body in various ways. Our sense of smell is about 10 000 times more acute than our other senses, and this sense has a direct effect on the limbic part of our brain - the part that governs emotions and memory. The oils used for this workshop are specifically formulated to support emotional clearing and self-renewal and the way in which they will be applied is inspired by an Ancient Egyptian ritual.
According to Gary Young, founder of Young Living essential oils, “Thought equals frequency. Essential oils absorb our thoughts. They are registered in the oils as intent. Intent is directed energy. When you apply an intent-energized oil on your feet they can saturate all of your cells within 60 seconds, stimulating creative thinking and pushing negative energy out of the cells, thus increasing the frequencies of the cells throughout the body. In that uplifted state you can create a new desire to be better tomorrow. You have no limitations but those you choose to accept.”
Immerse yourself in these delicious three hours: a sensory journey to reconnect, release and empower, letting go of what no longer serves you, and creating space for new opportunities for your highest potential.
