Therapeutic Yoga combines Hatha Yoga with Essential Oils and Herbal Infusions. Movement is one of the key foundations of health.

Hatha Yoga is a powerful tool that works on both a physical and energetic level. When we move and stretch our bodies, we are able to clear blockages that can cause pain, stiffness, fatigue, and low mood, we then feel lighter, happier, clearer, and more in tune with our needs. This is when we are able to make better decisions regarding our food, and daily routines.

Nikki combines a yoga practice with essential oils to enhance the benefits of the poses. A personally blended herbal infusion (tea) is always served after relaxation, further enhancing these benefits and allowing a sense of peace and calm to really resonate through body, mind, and soul.

Classes are a combination of YIN Yoga and HATHA Yoga for a complete practice that balances both Yin & Yang energies; Yin is always taught on the week of the Full Moon.

An example of how Therapeutic Yoga works:
TWISTING Poses are further enhanced by an essential oil blend being applied to the abdomen and lower back where pulse points are located – this enables the oils to quickly enter the blood circulatory system.
  • Help to restore the spines natural range of movement
  • Improve posture
  • Relieve back pain and tension
  • Release tension between the shoulder blades and in the muscles that support the spine and neck
  • Cleanse and detoxify by pressure being applied to organs such as the Liver, Stomach and Kidneys
  • Increase metabolism
  • Help with digestion
  • Increase mobility through the rib cage and abdomen, which increases the breath capacity
Beneficial oils include; Black Pepper, Fennel, Juniper, Sweet Marjarom, Nutmeg, Orange, Rose, Rosemary.
A blend of herbs are served in a tea after relaxation, synergising the effects of the essential oils.
This class is unique and combines Nikki’s Yoga & Aromatherapy qualifications to offer you a deeply beneficial experience.
