Vetiver essential oil lends support and stability to rising fire – so we centered and avoid burnout. Yoga postures will highlight restorative heart supporting postures and gentle stretching of the Fire meridians. We end class relaxing on our mats with a guided Yoga Nidra meditation practice – preparing ourselves to stay cool through the coming excitement of Summer.
