Celebrating one’s own innate freedom invites us to remember that no one or no thing can disturb the freedom on the inside, unless we allow it to. This practice will include hip opening and soft backbends to create a more spacious feel to the body. The postures coupled with essential oils to lift the mood, open the heart and remind us to be playful and creative in life.
This workshop and the essential oils we will use are selected to also remind us that our own inner peace is something we can choose to control. That “freedom” on the inside can’t be disturbed by others unless we allow it. The selected oils will help us solidify and fortify our strength and our sense of play and fun.
