An Introduction to Yoga &
with essential oils
SAT 1 JUNE, TIME TBC
Newton Abbot Health & Wellbeing Show, Newton Abbot Racecourse, TQ12 3AF
EVERYONE IS WELCOME
Join yoga teacher and aromatherapist Rebecca Poyurs to learn more about increasing your physical, mental & emotional wellness with the support of yoga and essential oil blends from the Revkah Aromatherapy range.
Yoga & Essential Oils are both simple & complex.
They can be used for a specific intended purpose, yet can also add multiple aspects of healing to the body, mind, & spirit. Both have been used for physical, spiritual & emotional wellness for thousands of years across around the world.
Yoga on the mat is a sacred space where we can shed our protective exterior and just be with ourselves in a deeply personal and healing way.
Aromatherapy is the ancient art of using plant, flower and root essential oils to aid and support many aspects of health as well as heal, balance and restore. The use of essential when combined with the different practices of yoga, can assist in deepening & expanding our experience with our overall health and well-being.
In this introduction, we will explore slow and gentle movement, a short meditation as well as information and application of blended essentials oils from the Revkah Aromatherapy range.
Absolutely everyone is welcome and no previous experience required.
*This is a complimentary workshop at the The Newton Abbot Wellbeing Show
Join me for a 3 hour yoga and aromatherapy immersion in the beautiful North Devon coast, where we will awaken the power of our senses with a sensual and enlightening blindfolded yoga practice and the healing aromas of Revkah Aromatherapy blend CLARITY, leaving you feeling more connected and receptive to yourself and to the world around you.
In a world where we are confronted with busy schedules, bright colours, loud noises, and dramatic sensations, this class will offer you a haven of silence and will support you in learning how to tap into and trust your innate intuition.
Using slow, subtle but powerful movements through a grounding blindfolded yoga practice, we will free space throughout your body and direct focus on slowing down, drawing inward and connecting to your senses of smelling, feeling and hearing - all guiding you to move from the inner light of your intuition without external distraction.
Working with movement, breathing, attention and intention, we will be diving deeply into the journey of pratyahara - one of the eight limbs of yoga and means to explore the full range of the senses, including the natural ability of the senses to turn inwards and what that reveals.
You'll then enjoy nurturing conscious rest inviting tension to dissipate and a quiet meditation to connect you deeply to your intuitive being - all creating the space for clarity and true confidence to be found.
To support and enhance our experience, we will also be using my personally crafted aromatherapy blend CLARITY - a sweet & purifying blend designed to assist ease of breath, encourage self awareness and enhance focus during yoga and meditation.
Please book in advance and bring something to wear as a comfortable blindfold during the movement part of the workshop.
''Every perception is an invitation into revelation. Hearing seeing, smelling, tasting, touching — ways of knowing creation. Follow your senses to the end and beyond, into the heart of space. When you close your eyes attention turns towards the inner glow. The heart sees by its own light.''
Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, Radiance Sutras, Lorin Roche
The Yoga Barn is one of the very first yoga, meditation and holistic therapies centres in North Devon, situated in a beautiful quaint coastal village. A wonderful opportunity to deepen your practice in a serene yoga dedicated space and to explore one of the most beautiful parts of Devon.
Working mindfully and playfully, this class will offer you an opportunity to let go of the armour we put on every day to face the world and to support increasing your confidence, compassion and openness as we free energy around the heart space - leaving your body, mind and heart more open, receptive and energised.
The spine is designed to be flexible allowing a greater and more fluid range of motion throughout the body, but for too many of us our current habits can cause the spine to become more rigid due to extended periods of sitting and a trend toward a more sedentary lifestyle.
Through a heart-centred, uplifting flow, we will open up and release tension in the upper back, the chest and the heart area as well as opening the hips to free and strengthen the spine. Using movement and intention, we will actively help counteract our everyday sitting posture and prepare to work gradually and mindfully through the different back bending techniques for Ustrasana (camel pose), Camatkarasana (wild thing pose) and into Urdva Dhanurasana (wheel pose), all presenting the opportunity to release what may be holding you back, feel lighter and to deepen your existing yoga practice.
We will then settle into heart opening restorative poses, allowing us to connect deeply to the effects of back bending on a more subtle and emotional level. In doing this, we will explore directing our attention inward to the heart to allow ourselves to feel our vulnerabilities and above all, how to respond to them with more kindness, compassion and love.
Whatever your level of flexibility or experience, this valuable workshop will give you the confidence to explore back bending and their uplifting benefits in a fun and informed way.
