Yogandha founder, Sinead Duffy, will be at stand E03 offering product demos, free samples and one on ones on how you can enhance your practice with Gandha.

We'll also have some of our oils being used to complement selected workshops throughout the weekend - we'll be sharing which ones over our social media pages in the next few days.

 How does Gandha work?

Gandha is Sanskrit for fragrance and the use of fragrant substances in yogic ritual.

In yoga we seek to quiet the mind & connect with the more meditative back brain. All of our sense pass through the front brain, bar one - the sense of smell. It directly accesses the meditative back-brain, the part we try to access in yoga. This is why fragrance has been used in every major meditative tradition.

 

Limbic Brain & aromatherapy

 

Smell re-creates bodily feelings - if you use our Gandha products before or after your class, the brain will associate that fragrance with the yogic state & it will bring you back to that state at other times.

Smells bring us back - not just in our head, but physiologically.

How to use Yogandha with yoga

Use our rollerball oils before practice or after asana before savasana. Keep it on your desk or in your handbag to re-apply when needed for grounding, uplifting or balancing. It's basic mood management while bringing the mindfulness of your practice into your everyday.

May the downward moving energy be nourished..... In Yogic and Ayurvedic philosophy we talk about the different movements of energy, or Prana, in our being. It’s energetic anatomy which also affects us on a physical level.

A new year often brings out the resolutions of living and eating healthier, detoxing, going on a diet, accomplishing more and creating goals. But sometimes we just need to take a moment, digest, reflect and then allow any resolutions or intentions to unfold.

Most spiritual traditions and religions have ethical guidelines. Such as the ten commandments in Christianity or the ten virtues in Buddhism. In the philosophy of Yoga, and specifically in the classic Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, we have the Yamas and Niyamas.
