FOCUS ON THE ESSENTIALS

oil
Event: Essential Oil Experience
Date: Saturday, January 9 from 1:30-2:30
Location: Bindu Yoga Studio, 5808 S. Dixie Hwy., (561) 233-9882

Essential oils are being increasingly integrated into holistic health practices for a wide range of uses. They are commonly used to boost immunity, help manage weight and diet, pain management, manage our moods and so much more. Essential oils also serve us emotionally, assisting us in releasing what no longer serves us. When we can let go and create space emotionally our physical health begins to be restored.

In this 1-hour essential oil experience class, you will learn how to use EO to assist with common ailments, enlighten your mood, and enhance your yoga practice.

Entice your senses, as we snack on foods made from EO, inhale the benefits of certified pure therapeutic grade, and apply them topically to be absorbed and restored in moments. If you are just beginning your essential oil journey or advanced this class is for you.

Every registrant will receive a gratitude roller ($16 value) just for attending, along with a drawing for a yoga mat spray, and more.

*Bring a mat to sit on *There are no asanas in this class
* Cost $10 includes snacks and beverage, and gratitude roller

As we are able to see both sides of any issue at this time we are able to work on harmonizing any imbalances. This is an excellent time to meditate with relation to any personal or world issues that may be concerning you.

Stock Up For Summer In The Southend

Plate

Looking for the perfect plate to make your picnic pop? Check out these chic outdoor-friendly plates I found at the SoSo Tuesday Morning. In a turquoise quatrefoil pattern, they are a great addition to your poolside or patio dining props. And at only $2.99 each, you can amass the whole collection that includes salad plates and small accent bowls that would be amazing for gazpacho.

Those unfamiliar with Tuesday Morning are missing out. It’s one of the best kept secrets for stylish steals in the Southend. Word of advice for Tuesday Morning novices- if you see something you like, buy it immediately. Quantities of designer finds are often limited and Tuesday Morning devotees clear them out quickly. (I learned that the hard way.)
