The chakras are seven energy centers in your body that affect your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. When you begin to work on your chakras, your energy begins to flow upwards. Many people’s chakras are not balanced. They are often blocked, overactive or inactive, resulting in confusion, depression, imbalances, and low energy.
How to balance your chakras is a good question. Through movement, breathing, and sounds help to move the energy in the body into the right directions which can help you to be more positive, have peace, clarity, energy, and balance within your life.
Here are some yoga poses to help you balance your chakras:
Hello again. First off CBD is NOT marijuana. They both come from the same plant, cannabis (hemp) but they are two different varieties. Think of it like apples – the granny smith is sour but the red delicious is sweet. They both come from apple trees but they are different varieties.
Just like apples, there are different kinds of CBD oils. Young Living uses the CBD oil that does NOT contain any THC (the mind-altering and addictive substance). Young Living essential oils are also mixed in with the CBD oil to help boost the effects of the product.
Young Living uses plants that are grown in chemical/toxin-free soil and have the seed to seal approval. Seed to Seal guarantees no chemicals/toxins are in the soil, used in the growing stage, or in the processing stages. Every oil is kept pure and free from chemicals/toxins. This is why Young Living products are more expensive than the ones in your local store. You pay more to guarantee no chemicals/toxins are being added to your body.
Calm CBD Roll-On creates a peaceful environment that will help relax and quiet your mind.
CBD Muscle Rub can specifically target those sore, achy muscles.
Cool Mint CBD targets Digestion, Immune function, Inflammation, Neuroinflammation, and Pain.
Citrus CBD targets Mood, Sleep, Appetite, and Memory.
Cinnamon CBD targets Appetite, Digestion, Immune function, and Inflammation.

Well, that is it for now. We will chat again later.
Yoga students typically seek out a quiet, tranquil, and breath-focused environment with minimal distraction. Here is some etiquette that can help maintain calm:
Arrive early…it helps you to get in the right mindset, and it won’t interrupt others.
Plan to stay for the whole class. It is very disruptive when someone gathers their belongings and opens doors to leave.
Leave your shoes at the door or on the trays. This shows a sign of respect and doesn’t get the floors wet during inclement weather.
Leave your cellphone outside the room. That way you won’t disturb the other students and it won’t distract you from being present.
Bring water, towel, and if possible, your own mat. Drink your water at the end, as through the yoga practice your body builds a digestive fire, necessary to break down food. You want to keep that fire going during the yoga class. A towel can be used to wipe sweat or to use as a prop. Bringing your own mat is great for hygienic reasons and can connect with your personal mat.
Avoid perfume or scented lotion. This could be distracting or disturbing to the other students. Essential oils are fine if used in moderation.
Wear appropriate clothing. Wear something that is comfortable, stretchy and breathable. Modesty is traditionally a part of yoga practice.
Let the teacher know about any physical issues and preferences. Before class is a good time to touch base with the teacher on any issues that may impact your time there. Let the teacher know if you are uncomfortable with hands-on assistance.
Clean up after class. Wipe the mats down and put the props away where they belong.
Be compassionate and don’t judge others. Reactions are not necessary for passing gas or making other noises. Focus on yourself, and be ok with yourself and your practice. Enjoying just being you.
Take the Pressure off Yourself. If you set high expectations for yourself and for others, you’re more likely to feel let down. Be flexible as some things won’t go exactly as plan. You may feel as if people are focusing on you, but in reality, most people are probably wondering what you are thinking of them.
Identifying your specific needs. Are you afraid that you will say the wrong thing at the wrong time? Or you might say something to embarrass yourself in front of people? Remind yourself that although you may feel uncomfortable, that is the worst that can happen to you in this situation.
Do not look for relief in alcohol or drugs. Although it is tempting at times to “take the edge off” alcohol and drugs can make anxiety far worse. It could even trigger panic attacks.
Saying NO is normal. Try not to over-schedule yourself. You do not need to be a people pleaser. You don’t have to be guilted by the pressures of accepting every invitation that you may receive.
I consider myself to be an active person. I garden, horseback ride and do the care of my horse, love to walk with and work with my dogs, and play with my grandkids. I also have my “pups” who are certified therapy dogs who visit hospitals, schools, and assisted living facilities. They are amazing. Sometimes Sammy also visits the yoga studio.
About 3 years ago, I noticed I was stiff at times, less flexible and was losing some strength. That’s when I decided to try yoga. It only took a few months to notice my energy and stamina with on the rise! I was less achy and sleeping better. And now I surprise myself with how much my balance and strength have improved! At 66, I feel better than I did ten years ago. And I have a friend going to yoga, too! We have such a good time in our classes with Sarah!
Thank you so much for joining me for this event! I hope you had a great time and learned a little bit as well. I know I did. As a reminder, the information shared within the graphics is about Young Living Essential Oils. They are definitely the pioneer of the industry and have been in business for over 25 years. One of the things I love most about Young Living is that they own their own farms. I’ve had the privilege of visiting the Lavender farm in Mona, Utah on several occasions and I have friends who have visited several of the YL farms around the world. The seed-to-seal guarantee really sets YL apart. Any partner farms and suppliers are held to seed to seal certification as well. I honestly do not recommend a run to a local box store or even a health food store thinking you’ll find something of this same quality because the chances are very high that you will not. Young Living essential oils are pure and unadulterated, the highest quality oils on the market.
There are two ways to get the high-grade essential oils I shared about in this class. You can purchase items individually at the retail rate or you can purchase wholesale and receive 24% off retail price on all future orders. All you do to keep your wholesale membership active is to spend $50 a year. You are NOT required to distribute or sell any products. However, as a wholesale member, you do have the choice to participate in a completely optional referral program, which is a great way to receive a little extra abundance each month. Signing up with the wholesale account is by far the best bang for your buck!
