On Saturday 31st July, yoga instructor Tasha Wellstead of Attainable Wellness and I held our first workshop collaboration, Aroma-Yoga for Relaxation at the beautiful Yoga Shed in Wickham.
A Mini Retreat
We are both passionate about using our skills to help clients relax and unwind from the stress of everyday life and by joining forces, we created a blissful 3-hour “mini retreat”. The workshop allowed our guests space to relax, let go and experience some beautiful essential oils, breathing and deep relaxation techniques that can be used at home to keep tension and anxiety at bay.
Tasha started the evening with a guided meditation and breathing technique to settle us into the calming space and switch off from the day, starting the relaxation process.
I then spoke about 6 different essential oils and how they can support us in times of stress, whether you are looking for something to calm anxiety, uplift the spirit, enhance deep, relaxing breath work or to switch off from a busy mind. Attendees were then able to create their own bespoke blend of essential oils to dilute into a pulse-point roll-on to take away and use during their yoga practice and to help instil a sense of relaxation at home or at work as well.
The evening finished with a blissful Yoga Nidra practice. Under the soft lights and gentle candle light of the venue and with the delicious fragrances from the oils, a state of deep tranquillity was achieved.
Such was the effect of the evening, I slept for 10 hours that night and maintained a deep sense of calm throughout the following day and into the new week and feedback suggests our guests experienced similar benefits.
Don’t Take My Word For It…
This is what guest Sam Thomson said, “The workshop met all expectations I had. It was an enlightening, intimate and relaxing experience. Sam and Tash combined have a wealth of knowledge and answered any questions we had. They really have their clients’ wellbeing in mind at all times and the whole experience was wonderful!”
