About this class

In this Workshop, we will discover the spiritual nature of a self care practice. This morning class is designed to expand our spiritual nature as the morning expands. 

Steeped in Ayurveda, we will cultivate the magic of opening the energy channels of the face, neck, and décolleté to release tension in the face and neck.

With relaxation, we find that we are more deeply connected with the greater consciousness. As we refine fine lines and wrinkles, we find tension release in this area to offer an alignment the upper chakras revealing: confidence, communication, intuition, and connection with the universe.

This is a special class that is both practical in nature incorporating:

* Self Massage

* Use of oils 

* Upper body exercise and stretching from the waist up.


You will focus on

  • Abhyanga (self-massage) and morning mindfulness.
  • Marma massage of head, neck & décolleté.
  • Warming up poses from waist up.
  • Meditation.

How to come prepared

  • Bring your favorite body oil like: sesame, almond, argan, jojoba, or olive.
  • Have a towel, wet washcloth, blankets.
  • Be in a chair, or on a yoga mat. Either works!
  • Have water for sipping.
