Aroma Flow Yoga at Container Collective Yoga & Bikes (Lakewood, CO) combines pure essential oils with an all-levels vinyasa yoga flow. The yoga flow sequence takes you through poses that serve to ground, invigorate, expand, and release the physical body & mind. The essential oils are implemented into the practice to complement specific poses. For example, placing cedarwood essential oil near the base of the spine (root chakra) and practicing triangle pose enhances the effect of grounding in the mind and body.
You may be wondering: how do I remember which oils serve what purpose? At the beginning of Aroma Flow Yoga (Lakewood, CO) the teacher and an essential oil expert spend a few minutes explaining the chosen oils for the evening. The instructor and oil expert then pass around a bottle of each chosen oil for the class to catch a whiff of as the oil properties are explained in greater detail. The Aroma Flow Yoga teacher takes time and care to plan the class structure, poses, and essential oils that will create the most comprehensive and expansive flow experience for the class.
Each month the Aroma Flow Yoga workshop is developed around a unique theme. Coming this August, Container Collective Yoga (Lakewood, CO) will feature "Creating Optimal Health" as the Aroma Flow Yoga theme. Experience essential oils and a yoga flow practice that will enhance many health-related components of your life. If you are curious about Aroma Flow Yoga you have the opportunity to participate for free!

Kids Yoga is on the rise! Those of us who have children of our own, nieces & nephews, or who teach children are seeing the many benefits of yoga creating positive impacts when implemented into a daily or weekly routine. Physically, children gain flexibility, improved posture, better balance, strength, and coordination. Mentally and emotionally the benefits include confidence, self-love, empowerment, positive body image, and peace of mind. We are so excited to offer Kids Yoga in Lakewood, CO for our neighborhood children & for the amazing little buddies in your life!
Kids Yoga in Lakewood, CO is approached through the Baptiste Yoga methodology. Baptiste-based Kids Yoga helps children through the themes of “Be A Yes, Give Up What They Must, & come from You Are Ready Now.” When children consistently practice yoga and mindfulness they can gain the confidence to finally try out for their favorite sports or dance team and “Be A Yes!” They can also strengthen their mind-body connection and understand how to create healthy body responses when their brain feels fast-paced and upset--”Giving Up What They Must” and shifting to a calmer response. Baptiste-based Kids Yoga can aid children in coming from “You Are Ready Now” by showing them they truly are ready to start that big school project even if it means slowing down and taking it one step at a time.
I know, as a child, I could have gained so much from having a yoga and meditation practice implemented into my weekly routine. I believe that I’m not alone in this thought as I have spoken to many other adults who agree that they wish they could have received the calming, confidence-building tools of yoga at a much earlier age. Bring your little one to a Kids Yoga Class in Lakewood, CO and spread the word about the benefits of kids yoga. Let’s work together to help the next generation be a fantastic contribution to the world and a great friend to themselves.
I just got off of a call with my business coach about the upcoming yoga teacher training in the fall. She asked who were the people that I wanted to have in the training and then she asked why they haven't signed up yet. :) I did a little journaling on my answer to her questions and I though you may find my answers interesting. And I'd love to know if any of it resonates with you.
My answer to Ellen (my biz coach) about who I want in the training was:
The people that are already a part of the Container Collective Yoga community that I have had the honor of watching tiny transformations happen over the course of each yoga class they attend. I see a light in them that gets a little brighter with each time that they land on their mats. Some of them have a glimpse of their light and know that more is possible. Some of them don't even have a clue to the light that I see in them. Whichever you are, it makes me excited about the possibility of what you will discover by taking your yoga practice to the next level through the CCYOGA teacher training this fall.
My answer to Ellen about why you haven't signed up yet is one of the following:
-you get hung up on the fact that you don't necessarily want to teach yoga
-you are hung up on the cost of the training
-you are getting stuck on the time commitment
-you think that you haven't been practicing long enough or that you don't "know" enough
When I think thru the above listed reason I realize that they all really come down to fear.
Fear of not being worthy of learning something for the sake of learning.
Fear of not having enough money.
Fear of not having enough time.
Fear of not being good enough.
My dad told me growing up, and I was reminded of it again this weekend at the back bend workshop, that fear is nothing more than:
So then thinking thru how that plays into the reason/s why you may not have signed up yet, is that reason really just false evidence appearing real (a.k.a. fear)?
Because from my perspective, you are more than worthy of deepening your practice simply for the sake of deepening your practice.
If it's money. I'm totally flexible to put together a payment plan that is reasonable for you.
If it's time. The best things in life happen via a commitment to growth, which takes time....and totally worth every second.
And I would love to show you thru this training how good you really are!
Now I smile when I come back to the question "Who do I want to have in the training?" I smile because of the shift in perspective I've had just now in the process of writing you this email. This training is such a wonderful and intimate experience, that of course I want to be specific about who I invest 200 hours in. Yes, I think the whole world could benefit greatly from yoga teacher training... And I don't have to and can't teach the whole world about yoga on this level. But I could teach you!!!! And I want so much to share the gift of yoga teacher training with you!
I look forward to hearing your thoughts on what I've shared. Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions.
love and light,
