Introducing Aromatherapy to your SOMA experience: this week Rose and Neroli for Valentine's

This week we launch our aromatherapy in hot yoga classes. Enjoy carefully blended essential oils in your cool face cloth that change each week based on our Elementals Space theme.

What is aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy uses plant materials and aromatic plant oils, including essential oils, and other aroma compounds for improving psychological and physical well-being.

We believe that when paired with hot yoga where you are working through the mind and the body, it brings that extra element of healing benefits and completes the whole experience.

How do you choose the week’s essential oil?

Every Sunday we have our Elementals Space class which is our yin-inspired class working on the meridians and soft tissues of the body to create space, relaxation and healing especially on the overworked body and stressed mind.

As part of this class, we use a blended essential oil that works on the same part of the body as the poses. For example, one of our classes focussed on the spleen and stomach meridians so we used Cardamom and Ginger which are also known to help with health in these areas.

Based on the theme of the Sunday class, we then use the same essential oil blend for the whole week so members in all hot yoga and cycling classes will get a chance to experience it on their hard-earned cool face cloths.

Which classes use it?

You will experience the week’s chosen blend in all hot yoga classes and cycling classes.

What is the blend for Valentine’s Week?

For Valentine’s, we chose Rose Neroli oil known to balance hormones, help acne and depression as well as a known aphrodisiac.

Sounds good!
