Fall Reset with Essential Oils with Lauren D’Angelo
By engaging all five of the senses with soft candlelight, soothing music, aromatherapy, lots of hands-on assists and a renewed awareness of taste (there may be a yummy Fall snack – hint hint). This Fall Reset will align practitioners with the inner wisdom of deep relaxation.
The physical practice takes time to open the body’s subtle energy and prepares students to experience new depths of awareness in an extended, guided savasana.
During Fall Reset, you may discover extra hands-on assists and massages using essentials oils, along with a calming atmosphere, delightful scents and beautiful music in the background.
Essential oils can be used to awaken and invigorate the senses and they are a complement to whole life and support our bodies systems, ground our emotions, and enhance our immune system so we can be healthy, active and live abundantly in health and wealth. Oils have been used for centuries to enhance health.
Be prepared to reset your life this Fall!
Join Lauren for this workshop, which incorporates restorative yoga, along with essential oil.
Each workshop attendee will have a chance to create their own blend of essential oil and leave with a 10 ml roller ball of your own custom creation!

Have you ever wondered what “functional movement” means? What about trying to make your yoga asana practice and classes more accessible and effective? Well, this is the workshop for you!
We’ll start with yoga class infused with functional movement, then discuss some of the concepts in the lecture component afterward. Topics include breathing, sequencing to the nervous system, strategies for properly preparing your body for yoga asana, & more!
An understanding of functional movement can really change the way you perceive and address the human body. By exploring the concept of functional movement and blending it with more traditional yoga postures we’ll have an opportunity to observe how this can impact our mind and body. You may notice that some poses intrinsically become easier and more fluid and your practice embodies a higher degree of safety and sustainability.
The ultimate goal of any functional movement in yoga asana is to create a sustainable yoga practice, so that you may continue to practice for as long as you want in a way that serves your anatomy both on and off your yoga mat.
When you change the way you move,
You change your perspective.
When you change your perspective,
You change your LIFE!
