I am so excited for these amazing oils, the doterra Yoga Collection. I have been using them in my Holy Yoga practice over the last few weeks and have loved putting them in my diffuser every morning. They have added another level to my quite time and its been a much needed break from the craziness. So lets talk holy yoga and oils!
Featuring Lavender, Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Cinnamon, Frankincense, Black Pepper, and Patchouli essential oils in a base of Fractionated Coconut oil, Anchor’s aroma is earthy, woody, and rich helping you feel rooted and grounded.
A great pose to do while using Anchor is the simple seated pose. Simple sit cross legged on the floor. Taking a big breath in begin to elongate your spin nice and tall. Slowly pull your belly button towards your spine. Taking nice slow deep breaths. Bring your shoulders towards your ears, rolling them back and down behind your heart. Keeping your chin parallel to the floor let your body relax with each breathe. Taking a few breaths and read over the Anchor verse. With every breathe think of how the verse pertains to you. What is God saying to you?
Align is made with a unique blend of oils such as Peppermint, Basil, Geranium, and Jasmine Flower to create a fresh, green, and herbal scent.
From seated pose extend your legs straight out, toes pointed towards the sky. Taking a slight bend in the knee, keep your navel drawn in raise your arms so the palms of your hands are facing each other about shoulder width part. Relax your shoulders. Creating a nice aligned straight line from the floor, through your seated bones, out the top of your head, and through your finger tips.
Taking a few deeps breathes in read over the Align verse. Letting it settle in with every breath. With every exhale thank God for where He has worked things in your life out for good.
Featuring Grapefruit, Lemon, Osmanthus, and Siberian Fir essential oils in a base of Fractionated Coconut Oil, Arise’s fresh scent is both happy and inspiring and will help you continue to reach higher.
From staff pose, come down to your back. Pressing the back of your head into the mat slightly lift your shoulder blades off the floor then tucking them behind your heart pressed down into the mat. Let your feet fall the either side, as your navel stays pulled towards your spine. Your arms come down to your sides, palms up and relaxed. With every rise of your breath let your exhale relax your body even more. Resting here for a few breaths let your body start to relax.
Once you have settled and are ready to be done slowly wiggle your fingers and toes, bringing movement back into your body. On your exhale, roll to the left or right side, in a fetal type position. When you are ready, slow push up in to the original seated pose. Navel drawn in, spine nice and tall.
From here think about the Arise verse. How are you going to arise in Him and show His light today?
