Yoga Oils and Emotional Release for Anger and Rage

Feeling anger- I tell my kids many times in a day that feeling anger is not bad, but what we choose to do with that anger defines us. Rage is feeling anger which is out of control. We crave returning to control and calm once again. Yoga is slow movement connected with breath. Slowing down allows our body and mind to process what we are feeling and return to a sense of control. Yoga oils and emotional release can be tools to lead our emotions back into control.

Marjoram Oil promotes peace, calms the nervous system, and soothes emotions of anger. Place the oil on your neck for muscle relief and calm. Ylang Ylang is uplifting to the subconscious, calms feelings of anger, is relaxing, and enhances relationships. Place the oil on the heart.

Vrkasana is a balancing pose. Balancing poses force us to focus, remind us that we must breathe, and help us to find focus.
Anahata Chakra and Yoga
Bridge pose (setu bandhasana) helps us to open the heart while building strength in the back body. Increase your breath capacity while rolling the shoulders back and opening the chest.

Yoga oils and emotional release: use the powerful tools of yoga, breathing, and essential oils to shift the emotions of lethargy, anxiety, and anger.

Mindfulness helps you go home to the present. And every time you go there and recognize a condition of happiness that you have, happiness comes.”

Yoga is my passion, teaching is my life. I started teaching yoga when my husband entered the US Air Force and now my career travels with me. Every time I move, I look for places to teach and a community of caring yogis who I grow to love and then one day, leave behind. This is a place where we can reconnect and create our yoga together.
