Workshops offer the opportunity to explore aspects of your yoga and meditation practice more deeply in a smaller, more intimate group setting.
Each workshop has been thoughtfully designed with the Christian yoga student in mind, and therefore is offered from a Christian perspective.
What to expect from a Workshop:
- A longer time allotment than a group class allows for deeper exploration into a particular aspect of your practice
- Focused attention on the topic without other distractions
- A relaxed environment which encourages questions and dialogue
- The energy of a small group setting which allows for more individualized instruction

I look forward to hearing from you, and helping you deepen your practice in a mindful way!

A Pleasing Aroma: Essential Oils of the Bible
Essential oils, the healing, life essence of plants, have been used since Biblical times for healing and anointing. In this workshop, we will explore how incorporating these oils, especially oils used throughout the Bible, into our yoga practice can help deepen our mind/body connection, elevate our mood, and enhance our spiritual intimacy with the Father. Based on James 4:8, we will engage in a beginner-friendly detoxifying flow sequence followed by a relaxing period of yin/restorative postures, incorporating different oils to help calm the mind and rejuvenate the body. By inhaling and applying these oils periodically during the practice, we can experience deeper awareness, peace and connection with the Holy Spirit. We will close with Scripture meditation to seal our communion with Jesus and each other.
**Not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing.**
