Why Essential Oils in a Yoga studio?

At Underground, we foster an atmosphere conducive to personal healing and growth.

We embrace different modalities to enhance our experiences, and have chosen to include essential oils in parts of our practice both in the studio and at home.

If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. Essential oils provide plants with protection against environmental threats and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and being beautifully fragrant to people, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices.

Essential oils can enhance our Yogic practices and different aspects of our daily lives and health.

Essential oils are used for a very wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used a single oil at a time or in complex blends in one of three methods:

  • Aromatic – Certain essential oils, when diffused, can be very stimulating, while others can be calming and soothing. Diffusing essential oils can also cleanse and purify the air of unwanted odors.
  • Topical – Essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin and can be safely applied topically.
  • Internal – Certain essential oils have a rich culinary history and can be used as dietary supplements for targeted wellness.

How will we use essential oils in the studio classes?

We use the oils in a variety of ways to enhance our practice!

Each month, we offer free, educational workshops open to our students as well as interested community members.Grab your friends and come together! They are intended to be relaxing and informative. We will learn from those of you who have personal experience with oil as well as our top notch educator, Aly. Leave with a clear understanding of how to use oil(s) that speak to you.

In addition, we will offer “Make & Take DIY” workshops for only $5 per bottle! Our experts guide all participants towards the oil(s) that make the most sense for each individual. Again, leave with a clear understanding of  how to use the bottle that speak to you. 

Look for regularly scheduled classes or special Yoga or Meditation workshops that incorporate oils into the practice, if you choose to participate. We may offer drops of oil to flavor your water bottle, or bring more focus to your meditation. The options seem limitless!

What brand of oil do we use?

Essential oils are both exciting and promising when it comes to taking care of your own and your family’s health. Whether you’re applying essential oils topically, enjoying the aromatic benefits through diffusing, or taking essential oils internally, the positive effects of essential oils are endless!

That’s why you’ll want to ensure that the essential oils you are using are capable of delivering on their promise. You’ll want to make sure that you are choosing essential oils for their potency and their purity. Underground has proudly and carefully selected doTERRA Essential Oils for our studio.
