ESSENTIAL OILS 101
SUNDAY, JUNE 25 FROM 1:30-3:00
Find out what essential oils are, how we get them and how they can be used.
Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. Known for their powerful aromas, they have also been used throughout history for therapeutic benefits. Modern scientific study and trends towards more holistic approaches to wellness are driving a revival and new discovery of essential oil health uses.
During this class, we will cover the basics of essentials oils, including how to choose a quality oil, how to use them safely, and which essential oils can be part of your daily routine to support general health and wellness, skin care, mood support, cleaning, etc.
Amanda Stass & Kimberly Joy.
ZYTO COMPASS SCAN
The class will include a complimentary Zyto Compass Scan (Value $30) for every participant, which will scientifically determine your deficiencies and identify which oils you need to create balance in your body. You receive results in 5 minutes!
Cost is $20 per participant. Workshop is from 1:30-3 pm. Sign up
or at the studio. Participants may sign up for a complimentary scan at the studio between 9 am and 1 pm and between 3 and 6 pm. Please see the front desk for details!
STUDIO ETIQUETTE REMINDER:
BE QUIET IN THE ROOM!
Many students enjoy coming to the studio before class to get centered and quiet their minds before class begins.
Please be mindful of the meditative aspect of yoga and refrain from carrying on personal conversations in the yoga room.
And of course, leave those pesky cell phones on silent or vibrate when leaving them in the lockers or shoe cubbies!
MEET OUR NEWEST TEACHER:
"I started my yoga journey in 2012 at Bikram Yoga Columbia, in Columbia, SC. It started out as a way to move and get a workout and keep my weight down. I have been on my weight loss journey since October 2010 and I needed a workout that challenged my body but was gentle on my joints. I suffer from Lupus and when I found yoga the transformation began! Whenever I practice yoga I always leave better than when I arrive! I moved to Greenville in March of 2014 and discovered yoga again! Practicing yoga has changed my body and my spirit. I am happier because of my practice and now I get to teach! I am grateful to Pace and Sarah for giving me the opportunity to teach in their studio. Southern Om is a special place with a wonderful community of Yogis!"
Valeda recently graduated from Expand your Power, the Baptiste Institute's 200 hour Training Program. She is a 200 hour RYT through Yoga Alliance.
