The power of touch is so wonderfully amazing. It’s something that we don’t talk about or think about so much, but many of us aren’t simply touched daily in a nourishing safe healing way. The use of aromatherapy products has opened this in a broader sense in my classes. Usually a Yoga teacher touches you to adjust your body in a Yoga Asana. But finding a way to adjust with love is a great gift, and the use of the product during Savasana is almost always a welcome gift. I enjoy this part of my teaching, healing hands are something we all need , I have learned that it’s has great appeal to have a really relaxing hands on experience in Savasana especially after a particularly active vinyasa class!! I’m so pleased to say that I enjoy giving that part of class as much or more than I do when I take a class and I’m on the other side.
Maybe it’s time to take a break outside of class and have little body work done. It’s part of the yogic tradition and strong in Ayurvedic practice body massage is not only relaxing but a way to purge the body of toxins. So to all of my students I send my love and light and encourage all of you to take some time for yourself. Love your body. Strong body, strong mind.
