Fall Yoga Day

Please join the YAGD (Yoga Association of Greater Detroit) for their 10th annual Fall Yoga Day this Sunday, October 21, 2018. The event will be held at The Community House in Birmingham and offer four classes. You can attend them all or choose the morning or afternoon sessions. You'll be sure to get your "Om" on and perhaps discover a new path of peace. Schedule consists of: Session One: 9.30-10-45: ‘Ground Control’ ~ Karen Lutz Find stability as we explore the energies found in moving dynamically and juxtapose this with the stillness in holding the same postures. This gentle class is accessible to all. (Please bring any props you enjoy using.) A popular past Fall Yogaday teacher, Karen has been teaching in the Birmingham/ Bloomfield area for the past 10 years. She is a 500-hour Registered Yoga Teacher. Session Two: 11-12.15: ‘Move Freely - Body, Mind, & Spirit’ ~ Lynn Medow In a healthy, happy, well-functioning body the fascial system is strong, fluid and flexible. Chronic fascial tension & restriction molds our posture unfavorably. In this class we will meet our points of resistance, releasing and expanding, resulting in freedom of movement in body, mind & spirit. YAGD member Lynn Medow, a 500-hour RYT, is the founder of the Yoga by Design Foundation. {Lunch break: 12.15-1.25: Bring your own or visit a nearby restaurant or coffee shop} Session Three: 1.30-2.45: ‘Putting the Mind to Rest’ ~ Richard Smith Without proper rest both the mind and the body suffer. But how do you rest the mind? Using classic meditation practices Richard Smith will show how to find the rest and the peace a healthy mind needs. YAGD member Richard Smith has practiced meditation for more than 30 years — not least at longterm retreats in Asia, Europe and North America. He has been teaching meditation for the last decade. Session Four: 3-4.45: ‘The Goldilocks Principle in Yoga’ ~ Katherine Schaefer Not too much, not too little, just right! Balancing effort (Rajas) and yielding (Tamas) in our yoga practice is how we find harmony (Sattva) in body and mind. Learning how to sense when we are applying too much effort or collapsing takes practice. In this class we explore finding the 'just right' place. A Yoga and Massage Therapist, Katherine has been a YAGD member since 1996. ~ Savasana ~ Fall Yogaday favorite and YAGD member Katherine Schaefer will bring 2018 Fall Yogaday to a close with a period of Savasana as a seamless continuation of her class. Cost: $65 for complete day; $37 for morning or afternoon session. Check-in: 8.45-9.15 am. Bring your yoga mat and a blanket. Space is Limited. Early registration is advised.

Lemon Oils (CPTG) vs. Lemon Juice

You've probably heard many uses for lemon juice like add it to your water, hot or cold. Many people have sensitivities to lemon juice because of the acidity which comes from the citric acid. Lemon oil does not, thus, it is much easier on the body. In the title I mention CPTG. This means Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oil. We move beyond pharmaceutical grade, food grade and therapeutic grade. The purity and efficacy of CPTG essential oils from doTERRA include rigorous testing of EVERY batch of oil. You can be assured of the quality and the research that goes into this amazing oil. One lemon tree can produce between 500 and 600 pounds of lemons in a year. It takes about 50 lemons to fill up a 15ml bottle. (pictured to the left) Read more here. Lemon EO can be used a cleansing agent both on surfaces and internally. The high limonene content found in it makes it a powerful antioxidant and cleansing agent. Egyptians used lemon oil to rid their bodies of toxins in addition to other oils like frankincense, the king of oils. It also aids in digestion (used in cleanse protocol), supports healthy respiratory function, and provides immune system support, especially during seasonal changes. So, next time you go for a lemon, think twice about lemon EO and the added benefits you will receive. Try diffusing lemon EO as a single oil or with a blend. Order yours here on its own or in a variety of kits that will allow you to enjoy the lowest prices all year long!
