Conserving Prana

Julie Quinn

  After discovering that I have an autoimmune disease I am now conserving prana or lifeforce energy in yoga and exploring the healing benefits of holding back.  

I have been purposefully holding back my power and energy in order to conserve my lifeforce.  

It was my good friend and fellow yogi, Susana Wolds, who suggested this idea because she learned about it in her Yoga Therapy course.  

It's one healing theory that I am exploring and so far I feel better after trying this a few times.  I have been taking a little time off when the symptoms start to appear and I listen to my body and rest.  I take a lot of restorative moments at home to relax and de-stress.  When it's time to build back up I go to yoga at 50% capacity.  

I notice that I have more sustained energy, less fatigue.  I literally look and feel better when I do this.  I'm preventing the symptoms from surfacing by slowing way down and staying in a high vibration in my mind and my heart.  

Having moments of deep healing rest is one way to tap into our bodies healing mode in a restorative practice, and theres also a way to restore ourselves in this type of modified moving practice I'm navigating now.  The way I teach is becoming more healing as well.   I'm much more interested in a healing practice that massages the vagus nerve and provides us the ability to tap into the parasympathetic nervous system response.  To rest and digest.  That's the money.  

So often we are told to show up, give it our best and push to our limits to grow and transform, but for people that need healing and want to build up their power, that may not be the healthiest choice.  That's what I'm noticing for myself as I navigate this uncharted territory in my own health.  

I'm modifying every posture while maintaining a slow steady breath.  It's surprising how different the practice can feel when you hold back.  

I'm using blocks for support in practically every posture.  Showing up at 50% is just enough to give me an outlet for my mind, and an ability to move some energy for my physical body.   

I look forward to my 50% capacity increasing through time so that I will get back to 110% again.  The past few days have been showing me I'm not quite there yet, but I'm also really onto something with the diet.  I'll share next time.  I'm starting week 7 of my elimination diet and finding out some major gems of wisdom about all of this.  

I look forward to sharing this kind of moving practice with my students that need the healing.  

 And so it is...

Essential Oils for Yoga class

Julie Quinn

As a Yoga Teacher and Aromatherapist I can offer some sound essential oil advice for use in a yoga class.  Whether it's Power Vinyasa Flow or Yin + Reiki there is an oil to top off the practice with. 

Quinntessentials products are already pre-dilluted in most cases so you can start utilizing them in class right away.  I will go over the Room & Body Sprays that are the easiest to utilize for a group setting.  I recommend using a spray in the beginning, middle, or end of the class when you have a moment to get to everyone as they are lying on their backs.  In Yin yoga a great time would be supported bridge pose or any supine twist.  There's always time in Savasana if you're in a fast paced Vinyasa class.  

Your students will be getting the uplifting vibration of the essential oils that are still working with them long after class ends.  It is another layer of healing benefits for your student to receive and for you to provide as an extra touch.  It's also great to use the essential oils with your class theme if you have one.  See some ideas below:  

Sage Spray:   great for a cleansing theme and releasing old energy that no longer serves us.

Lemongrass:  to get us in touch with gratitude.  What makes us truly happy?  

Sunshine Spray:  Uplifting for depression and rainy day blues.  A reminder to think positively

Lavender:  For balance, soothing, calm, awakening intuition, and deep meditative relaxation

Eucalyptus:  to cleanse & purify the air we breathe, for cleansing the room before & after yoga

Orange Spice:  Grounding, spicy, earthy, happy, & uplifting. A great scent for Fall or Holiday.

Basil Bliss:  to rejuvenate the senses and uplift the spirits

Moonlight Spray:  Palo Santo is said to help us cleanse and purify while inviting blessings.Magical


Finally, there's an entire line of Chakra roll-on oils to help support your chakra themed classes.  Check them out and try any of them in your special classes and workshops.  I hope the Quinntessentials products help support your teachings.
