essential oils yoga

You may already know that adding essential oils to your yoga practice can enhance the experience; but, have you ever wondered exactly how to do that?  In this newest video from Next Level Yoga, we incorporate three of the most popular essential oils to the practice. This Yoga with Essential Oils video is the perfect, beginner friendly way to blend the health benefits of essential oils and yoga.

Yoga with Essential Oils Video

Essential oils have a lot of benefits, from inflammation reduction, to mood adjustment to pain management, it seems like there is an oil for most every situation.  For more basic information on using essential oils in your yoga practice, check out this post, Yoga with Essential Oils

This video is a short, very basic class, accessible to all levels of experience. In fact, the majority of the class can be done either in or standing behind a chair, if sitting on the floor is not possible.

The Essential Oils You Will Need and Where to Get Them.

For this class, you will need the three most popular essential oils, lemon, peppermint and lavender. I use DoTerra essential oils and highly recommend them.  However, there are other oils on the market that are also very good.  If you are loyal user of another brand, by all means please use them with this video.

If you don’t know where to purchase these oils, here are some affiliate links to help you find the products you need from the two most popular brands.  I recommend purchasing the DoTerra introductory kit which contains all three of the oils used in this video.

Yoga with Essential Oils

Incorporating essential oils into your yoga practice is a great way to maximize the benefits of yoga. I know, it can feel a little out there to think that rubbing a drop or two of some plant oil on you is going to have some tangible effect on your body. However, think about this: before we had modern synthetic based drugs, people cured multitudes of maladies with plants alone. Yoga with essential oils is a great way to experience this effect.

Scientists who are way smarter than me, figured out how to mimic those plants’ chemical compounds and created drugs that have profound effects on the body, curing all manners of disease. So I ask, why is it so far-fetched to believe those same plant oils, in their purest forms, would not have the same effect now?  In short, its not, it just takes a little getting used to the idea. To be clear, no-one is suggesting you should forgo all modern medicine for essential oils, that would be irresponsible, but why not give it a try and see if you realize any benefits?

essential oil science

 

The use of essential oils for therapeutic purposes is called aromatherapy. Different oils provide different benefits. Some oils can improve concentration or reduce stress, while others help boost the immune system or improve the quality of sleep. Yoga with essential oils is a great way to start to use oils in your everyday life.

There are many different oils out there, the trick is to find what works for you. That will depend on what you hope to achieve. Here are a few essential oil basics: for enhanced relaxation try lavender, marjoram or ylang ylang. Conversely, for energy try peppermint, rosemary or wild orange. For focus and concentration, try grounding oils like sandalwood, frankincense and cedarwood.

Now to amp up those benefits try yoga with essential oils. Here are a few suggestions on how to do that:

  • essential oil diffuser
  • Use a Diffuser: Diffusing aerosolizes the oil molecules allowing you to breathe in their benefits. The most safest and most effective method is to use a diffuser which you can find either online or at most stores like Bed, Bath & Beyond. You simply add water and a few drops of oil and hit the start button.
  • Topical Application. Basically, you rub a few drops directly on to the skin. Always test for skin sensitivity first, and consider using a carrier oil such as fractionated (fatty acids removed) coconut oil to dilute the oil and cover more of the skin’s surface. Depending on the oil and the desired effect, there are a variety of ways to apply, for instance; rub peppermint on your chest or biceps before sun salutations for an energy boost; for relaxation, massage some lavender into the soles of your feet before final seated and reclined poses, or rub some sandalwood into your hands, cup your hands in front of your face to breath in the scent during the initial breathing exercises at the beginning of class.

essential oils topical use

  • Ingestion. Oils that are safe to ingest, such as lemon, lime and peppermint can be added to your water to sip during and after class. Be sure to confirm the oil you are using is safe for ingestion. Personally, I use doTerra products which carry a supplement label, letting you know they are safe to ingest, unless you see a similar label, do not assume you can ingest the oil.

We will be launching some free Yoga with Essential Oil videos on the Next Level Yoga YouTube Channel soon.  The yoga will be absolutely beginner-friendly and will incorporate three different essential oils at different times during the practice.  Here is a link to our YouTube Channel we would love it if you would take time to subscribe so we can notify you when they are available.

Below are some affiliate links to the three oils you will need for our first video. These links will take you to Amazon where the oils are sold at the retail price.  I have included links to the two most popular brands of essential oil.

Yoga Club Review July 2018

Yoga Club

Yippee! My latest Yoga Club Box has arrived.  As you may remember in my last box, I decided to exchange the bubble gum pink tank top and bondage inspired leggings for something else.  Here is a link to my last Yoga Club review if you need to catch up June 2018 Review

yoga club logo

With Yoga Club you have two options for exchanges, you can post on their Facebook group, or they have a limited selection on their website for you to choose from.  I chose the website route and decided on a cute t-shirt by LA Soul with elephants in a circle, very zen-y, and a pair of crop leggings by Rune in purple.

When I opened the box I found more elephants that I bargained for.  Yoga Club was apparently one step a head of me and for this month’s outfit they sent me this LA Soul t-shirt with an elephant.  That is more elephant based attire than I need in my wardrobe, the leggings, however are awesome.

Also in the bright pink box was these Bali blue capri leggings by Vimmia and a black muscle shirt by The Free Yoga. Both are very cute, but I am not sure they are quite me.  While I really like the leggings, I think the color might be hard to match with anything except white or black.  I have never really been a muscle shirt kinda gal, but this top is so incredibly soft, I am going to give it a go.

Want to give Yoga Club a try? Here are the details on how to get started and save 25%?

Here is how Yoga Club works.

YogaClub is a subscription service,  when you join you will choose a commitment level.  The Mantra (a pair of leggings), the Karma (leggings and a top), and the Guru (leggings, a top and a layering piece). Prices range from $45-$79, and you choose monthly or seasonal shipments.

If you use my referral code, ( Click Here to save on 1st Yoga Club Order ) you will get 25% off your first box.  Full disclosure, I will get “Lotus Bucks” in return, but frankly you need a ton of them to just to get a 10% discount, so if you use someone else’s link I won’t be upset.  But please use a referral code, don’t be a chump like me and pay full price the first time.

When you click through that link, you will take a little style quiz and; yes, you do have to give them your credit card information.  Shortly thereafter you will get a bright pink YogaClub box full of goodies just for you.  It’s like your birthday every month.

 

New Yoga Video- Core Strength and Balance Challenge on YouTube

Core Strength and Balance Next Level Yoga Tara Kestner

Question: What are the two things people tell me they want to work on most?  Answer: Core Strength and Balance.  Question: What are the two things people groan about when we work on them in class?  Answer: Core Strength and Balance.   Interesting….

Next Level Yoga presents Core Strength and Balance Challenge

Summer Porch Yoga Core and Balance Challenge Video

Ready for a challenge? This class combines the two things clients request most, core work and balance. I firmly believe that balance is not improved by standing on one leg, but rather, by challenging the body’s ability to adjust during movements in all planes of motion.

Handily enough, all balance work requires core strength. This class has kneeling core and balance work, a core isolation flow series, then a long-levered balance sequence.

We finish on our backs with a tough and tricky series I call, dead crow progression. Not gonna lie, this one’s a killer.  It may take you a couple times through to get it, but when you master this class, it feels amazing.

You will need a block.; if you don’t have a yoga block a large book like Stephen King’s It or Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will do, but put a string or rubber band around it so it doesn’t open on you at an inopportune time.

If you like this video, I would be ever so appreciative if would subscribe to my YouTube channel.  I need 1,000 subscribers for the folks at YouTube to take me seriously, I am currently at 17, clearly I am playing the long game 🙂

Best Ever Vegan Biscuit Recipe

Vegan Biscuits? WTF, Tara? Yes why the food, indeed. I know it’s a little off topic here, but let me explain.  On my stats page I can see the top searches on my site.  They are usually things like “child’s pose,” “hip flexors” and “can yoga fix my back.”  But awhile ago, my top search was “vegan biscuit recipe.”

This went on for a few days, and I began to wonder who would be searching this site for a vegan biscuit recipe.  Do they think just because I teach yoga I am a vegan too?  Not only a vegan, but one who bakes! That’s a lot of pressure buddy, I am not that disciplined. I could not get it out of my mind, and decided I needed to help.

I did a little research, and found a variety of vegan biscuit recipes.  Since I don’t bake (and, full disclosure, I am also not vegan), I asked my daughter, Piper, to test out several recipes until we decided on the best one.  And here we are, don’t ever think I don’t care about my people.

I present the best Vegan Biscuits recipe ever.

Vegan Biscuits and Jam, because Vegan Biscuits and Sausage Gravy would be wrong.

Here’s what you are going to need.

Vegan Biscuit ingredients
Everything you need for awesome biscuits.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For those of you who are not “visual learners”  Here’s an ingredient list.

I cup of unsweetened Almond Milk

1 TB of fresh lemon juice

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 TB baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

3/4 tsp salt

4 TBS cold vegan Butter (we used Miyoko, I am clearly skeptical)

vegan butter
Vegan butter, really? I don’t know about this stuff.

Preheat oven to 450.  Add lemon juice to almond milk to make vegan buttermilk.

Mix all the dry ingredients, whisk together.  Add butter to bowl and mix together with your hands until it resembles wet sand.  Work quickly you don’t want your butter getting warm.

Make a well in the center with wooden spoon and add in buttermilk a little at a time.  Keep mixing until it all comes together, you may not need all the buttermilk.

Turn out dough to a floured surface, sprinkle with flour and turn it on itself 5-6 times. Flatten it using your hands to about 1″ thick, then cut the biscuits with a glass or biscuit cutter.

vegan biscuit sprinkle.JPG
Messy Business, these biscuits.

Put the cut biscuits on a baking sheet in two rows with the edges lightly touching. Indent each biscuit in the center, and brush tops with melted butter. Bake for 12-15 minutes.

Biscuit belly buttons, adorable!

And voila, perfect, delicious Vegan Biscuits.  Enjoy! (I hope these were not needed for a time-sensitive event.)

Yoga Video Alert- Stretch & Strengthen the Upper Body on YouTube

revolved lunge pose next level yoga

Do you have neck and shoulder issues?  If so, it might be caused by tight chest and shoulder muscles.  Stretch & Strengthen the Upper Body is designed to loosen the muscles of the chest, shoulders and upper back.  At the same time, working the muscles of the arms to develop tone and definition. Here is a link to the class Next Level Yoga Upper Body Class

If you want “yoga arms” or are already buff but need some definition to really prime your entry to the “gun show,” this is the class for you.  It starts out slow and easy, then builds some mobility in the shoulders with some gentle flow work.

Then on to some deep upper body stretches to really loosen the chest and upper back. Finally, a smooth landing on the mat with some reclined stretching and a nice, long final relaxation.

Yoga Club Review-Take 3

Yoga Club tree pose bubble

yoga club logo

Shameful confession #1, I have no fashion sense. Apparently I am not alone, which is why Yoga Club exists and is thriving.  Yoga Club is like Stitch Fix, but for workout clothes.  If you don’t know what Stitch Fix is, you may find my post about my Stitch Fix adventure interesting, or not, no pressure, but aren’t you a tiny bit curious now,  here’s the link just in case you want to take a peek, I’ll wait.  June Stitch Fix Review

You may remember my last Yoga Club installment (Yoga Club Review Take 2) included a top that was not to my liking and I was going to check out their exchange program.  I discovered I had two options; I could join a Facebook group exclusively for selling and exchanging Yoga Club items, or I could choose a replacement from some options on their website.  I chose the latter and picked an MPG Sport t-shirt in a color called “fiery coral”  Let’s see how that turned out.

Yoga Club bright pink t shirt
MPG Sport Link Seamless T-Shirt retail price $38

WOW!  Needless to say, Fiery Coral is such a retina searing color, sunglasses are required.  I don’t think this one is going to work for me,  the fit is great but the color is shall we say, a bit garish.  So, I went back in and traded this out for another shirt in a more soothing palate which will come with next month’s box.

Next, was this…

Yoga Club Kenneth Cole Tank Singlet
Kenneth Cole Reaction Cosmic Singlet retail price $44

There is just no way around it, I am not a bubble gum pink tank top kinda gal.  To be fair, this top is really cute and it fits well, but it’s just not me, so it will be going back and will hopefully find a home with someone who can pull off this color.

The next item in the bright pink box was this..

Yoga Club 3 vest
Glyder Moxie Vest retail price $76

Now we’re talking.  This vest is more my style.  It’s a nice length, the fabric is super soft and there are big pockets to hide my Skittles.  These Threads for Thought leggings were also included, they are great, the fabric is really soft, they have a cute bandage strap detail on the leg (which looks a little bondage-y), but, I have so many pairs of black pants I think I will try to exchange these as well.

Yoga Club thread for thoughts legging zaria
Threads for Thought Zaria Legging retail price $98

So what have we learned, first Tara can’t wear pink, second it is possible to have too many pairs of black pants, and finally I eat too many Skittles.

Want to give Yoga Club a try? Here are the details on how to get started and save 25%?

How it works: YogaClub is a subscription service,  when you join you will choose a commitment level.  The Mantra (a pair of leggings), the Karma (leggings and a top), and the Guru (leggings, a top and a layering piece). Prices range from $45-$79, and you choose monthly or seasonal shipments.

Natural Pain Relief Products-When Yoga Isn’t Enough

Back Pain Relief

Recently my husband hurt his back, and as he limped around someone sarcastically asked him, “what, the magic of yoga couldn’t fix you?” Well no Ian, it couldn’t, but thanks for your sincere and heartfelt concern.  When yoga isn’t enough, you need a little help in the pain relief area.

Everyone suffers from some kind of malady at one time or another, and no matter how much you stretch, massage, ice or elevate it, the pain persists. In those cases I have two all natural pain relief products I recommend to clients.

The first is Myo-Med Pro Pain Relief creme. I was introduced to this product by my phenomenal massage therapist and I love it.  It’s not greasy, works really fast and does not smell as strong as other similar products. Here is a link if you want to check it out: https://amzn.to/2JuqmsG

The second is DoTerra’s Deep Blue Rub. Like Myo-Med, this product is formulated with essential oils, but along with the standard camphor and wintergreen for pain reief, Deep Blue has helichrysum which is known for its healing properties. Unfortunately, it’s also for it’s price which runs about $100.00 for 5 ml. YIKES!

This is why this product is markedly more expensive.  My clients who have issues with arthritis and other chronic inflammation disorders have had really good results with Deep Blue. Here’s a link if this seems like something you would like to try: https://amzn.to/2HiDBYB

The next time you find yourself in pain, and the “magic of yoga” has failed you as well,  you can give one of these natural pain relief products a try and hopefully find some comfort.

Yoga Block Party- 5 Great Uses for a Yoga Block

If I intend to teach a class that uses a prop (yoga block, strap, blanket or bolster) I usually have to provide said prop. Therefore, if I am going to lug 35 blocks to class, you better believe I plan to use it for more than one pose.

In a great stand-up bit by Tyler Fischer, he talks about yoga class and says there is always some mystery prop. The teacher will say something like, you are going to need to get yourself a blanket, two blocks and a live turtle. He’s spot on hilarious. Here is a link if you want to check out the whole bit. Tyler Fisher on Yoga Props

Blocks are probably the most versatile of the props. Think of them as a way to bring the ground closer, or, alternatively, make your arms longer.  If you don’t have a block you really should consider getting one.  They come in 3 and 4 inch versions, I recommend the 4-inch,  here are two good ones.  Four Inch Block  or Three Inch Block

Once you have procured yourself block here are five of my favorite ways to use them.

Five Poses with a Yoga Block
  1.  Runner’s Lunge- Use the block to lengthen the arms by placing it under the hands; or,  lower down onto the forearms to drop into the middle-ground between hands on the floor and forearms on the floor. Try them both to see what your body responds to.

    Elevated Runner’s Lunge

    supported lunge with yoga block
    Supported Runner’s Lunge

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2.  Revolved Lunge-  use the block to get a little height and allow the ribs to more fully rotate towards the inner knee.

revolved lunge with yoga block
Elevated Revolved Lunge

3.  Bridge.  Placing the block between the knees balances out the strength of the outer leg, which tends to pull the knees apart.  The block between the knees engages those inner leg muscles and forces you to distribute the work between the inner and outer leg more equally.

aligned bridge pose with yoga block
Aligned Bridge Pose

4.  Supported Bridge-  This is a great way to release the hip flexors, align the SI joint and relieve low back pain.  Place the block under the sacrum (the bony area above the tailbone, below the L5 vertebrae).  For a more intense experience, try straightening out one or both legs.

  1. Pigeon.  Slide the block under the elevated hip, and allow the block to fill in the space between the hip and the floor.  Stay for a minimum of one minute best results.

Yoga Club Review Take 2

Yoga fashion tank leggings

Those of you who know me are aware, fashion is not my strong suit.  I will happily teach a yoga class in a ratty, 10 year-old Ohio State T-shirt and plain black leggings (full length in Winter, capris in Summer, because variety) without a hint of self-consciousness. But, when I started making videos, I realized that’s probably not the best look, so I decided to tighten my yoga fashion game and subscribed to YogaClub.

yogo club logo

How it works: YogaClub is a subscription yoga fashion wardrobe service like Stitch Fix, but for workout clothing.  When you join, you choose a commitment level.  The Mantra level is a pair of leggings, Karma level is leggings and a top, and the Guru gets you leggings, a top and a layering piece. Prices range from $45-$79, and you choose monthly or seasonal shipments.

If you use my referral code, which is, YogaClub Referral Link you can give Yoga Club a try and get 25% off your first box.  Full disclosure, I will get “Lotus Bucks” in return, but frankly you need a ton of them to just to get a 10% discount, but please, use the discount, 25% off is nothing to sneeze at.

When you click through that link, you will take a little yoga fashion style quiz and; yes, you do have to give them your credit card information.  Shortly thereafter you will get a bright pink YogaClub box full of goodies just for you.  It’s like your birthday every month.

My first Club box was a smashing success and is chronicled here if you are curious, Yoga Club Review Take 2

My second box was also good, but not quite as successful as the first installment. Let’s take a look.

Yoga Club tank and leggings

This is the Glyder “Slash” Racerback Tank  Glyder Tank Link First, the softness of this fabric cannot be overstated, it’s like wearing a kitten.  However, it is really sheer, like I can see the details of your bellybutton sheer, and then there is this little detail…..

Yoga Club Glyder tank top

ahhhhh, no.  The mystery of the name Slash is solved, it looks like I just barely escaped an unfortunate paper shredder encounter.  Given the foregoing, this will be my first experience with the YogaClub exchange program.  But wait, there’s more.

Yoga Club long sleeve shirt leggings skittles

Let’s talk about these guys.  The Alternative Scoop Neck T  (cheaper version in gray here Alternative Shirt in Gray Link ) and the MPG Frame High Waisted Side Pocket Legging, here they are in black,  MPG Side Pocket Legging Link The shirt is amazingly comfortable, and the color is gorgeous, it retails for $42, I don’t know who pays that for a T-shirt, I paid $26 for this one and that seems about right.

But these, pants… words cannot describe how much I love these pants.  They fit perfectly, sometimes high-waisted leggings fit me like maternity pants, but not these, they don’t roll or slide around.  The fabric is soft and the mesh vents are just cool.  All of that, and a place to hide my Skittles.  WINNER!

So to recap, Yoga Club Round Two was mostly a success.  I will investigate my exchange options for old see-through Slash, and let you know how it works out.  If you want to give it a try, use this referral link to get 25% off YogaClub first order and let me know how it works out.

Short and Soothing Summer Porch Yin Yoga

yin yoga video

 

Need a break? My short Yin Yoga inspired class is now on YouTube. Grab a blanket or big towel, find a quite spot and take 20 minutes to stretch and chill. If you like the class and can find it in your heart to subscribe to my channel, I would be massively grateful.

What is Yin Yoga?

Yin yoga is based on the idea of yin and yang, opposing forces that retain balance in nature. Yin is the the cool, still and calm side, yang is the hot, dynamic and energetic side. As applied to the body, the yin is the tendons, ligaments and fascia while the  yang would be the muscles and circulatory system.

In a Yin yoga class the poses are generally more gentle, held for a longer period of time, and closer to the floor. The idea is to place  the body in a position close to the edge of the flexibility or range of motion, become still and allow the connective tissues to soften as time passes.

This short class is a great little sampler of yin yoga.  Check it out and see if it’s for you.  Here is the Link: Next Level Yoga Summer Porch Yin Yoga short class
