Yoga at Home

guide to self care

what to do during lockdown

The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged everyone’s ability to cope with stress. Managing stress is more difficult when we are taken out of our regular routines, dealing with a constantly changing situation and distanced from our usual supports. COVID-19 has created new life stressors and made existing ones even more intense.

We know nothing can replace the spa experience you get from in-person treatments, but we want to equip you with the knowledge and tools to take care of yourself. On the theme of self-care, we have put together kits for different parts of your body to practice at home. At the end of this weekly guide you’ll learn how to take care of your body from head to toe.

facial at home

Before you begin, set up your space by lighting an aromatic candle or using a diffuser. Our signature scent is TRANQUILLITY ™- blend of SWEET ORANGE, ROSE DAMASCEN AND CEDAR WOOD essential oils that offers a pleasant sensation of well-being. 

Next, put on some relaxing music. We suggest the Davines Calm playlist below:

 

 

Once you have your space set up, we suggest a breathing exercise. Place a few drops of the Tranquillity Oil in your hands and then cup them over your nose and mouth. Breathe deeply for 9 seconds - slowly inhale for 3, hold for 3, and then slowly exhale for 3. Repeat 3 times.

Now you are ready to begin your facial instructions that came with your kit. You can also download a copy here.
