The last Yoga class for 2015 found us in the bathroom  (all ladies,)  with a discussion on preparing skin for summer. Or if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere winter skin. I spoke to them briefly on the benefits of coconut oil, demonstrated the application of Sesame or Coconut oil. Ladies  here are the notes to follow.

Coconut oil is a cooling oil, Sesame oil heats and is used in Winter

So the students found a partner, one to relax the other to give a coconut oil fascial. I found small bowls to hold the coconut oil.  Talking the students through the process as they gave each other  a facial.( You can do the same as a Christmas gift.) This was truly a lovely /loving   way to end the Yoga year by the exchange of energy and joy. If you are unsure of the technique follow the lines of the face,  around the jaw line. Then go down to the shoulder and gently pull the skin, slide your hands along the back of her/his neck, sliding up the back of their head,move the oil into the hairanatomy-254120_1280

This under rated oil is full of compounds to heal your skin.The notes below are from Elaine Hollingsworth’s   book ‘”Take control of Your Health  and escape the sickness Industry “Screen Shot 2015-07-09 at 7.41.35 pmweight

Please remember only use pure coconut oil. No hydrogenated coconut oil and no “lite:” oil. Some claim coconut oil prevents premature ageing.

Give the lovely gift of a fascial, hand massage or foot rub this Christmas, knowing the pure oil will give them beautiful skin and shining hair.


About lorraine

After a nasty fall from my bicycle, coming home from high school, I began suffering from migraines. After a term of Chiropractic adjustments, which helped but did not entirely stop the migraine headaches, my parents in desperation sent me to yoga classes, The only available evening class in our area was filled with pregnant women. I felt out of place as a shy teenager, but persevered. adjustment,breathing, meditation and yoga proved the only therapy that bought relief from the headaches. Feeling well I got on with life, married moved from my home town and forgot the daily yoga practices and there benefits. Coming back to Yoga and meditation helped me manage during the time of my father's Cancer. and death. Later when my Husband became ill the natural decision was to qualify as a Yoga, meditation teacher to further assist others through the difficult times of illness and recovery or death. I have now been benefiting from the science and art of Yoga, Meditation for well over twenty five years.
