The Yogandha Story…
Yogandha is a range of 100% natural oils, full of vibrant active herbs that you put directly onto your skin to bring calm and well-being into your every day.They were created by yoga teacher Sinead Duffy to help bring her students into a more relaxed state. “I formulated the oils so that people could bring that yogic calm into their every day.”
Sinead spent 3 years meditating and blending on the intentions (wellbeing goals) of her students to create the range, and the range reflects that. There are 3 wellness roller-balls to manage energy and mood:
Yogandha Ground with mindful Sandalwood and Frankincense to calm, relax & soothe.
Yogandha Balance with Jasmine and Cypress to re-align at every level and Yogandha Salute with Grapefruit and Bergamot to energise mind & body.
The rollerballs can be used by everyone both for pre-practice and just for stress relief and everyday balance.
The body oils are, for Sinead about fostering a greater self-connection. “The three body oils came out of the well-being needs of my students. They are:
Yogandha Relax with Lavender and Vetiver to help induce a state of calm,
Yogandha Muscle Soothe with ginger and marjoram to relieve tired limbs and
Yogandha Detox with Lemongrass and Juniperberry to cleanse the system.
''I love the idea of people applying them with mindfulness to bring you out of your mind and into your body, even for a moment, every day. I actually use them in the shower every morning, instead of soap! They have all the anti-bacterial action you need, but instead of drying like soap, they nourish and even combat the dryness of the water. They bring some mindfulness into your every day, and, as a bonus, after a few days, your skin will feel amazing.''
The whole purpose of the oils is to help you get into the zone for practice and to bring your practice into your every day rituals – to bring some yoga into your everyday. Smell changes how you feel instantly and the products are based on the ancient practice of Gandha – fragrance for practice.
Give it a try and you’ll see how it deepens your practice and helps balance your everyday!.Both the roller balls and the body oils are available to purchase at Yoga West so have a peek when you are next in!
