  • Milene


  • Andrea Isaacs

    I can’t say that I’ve got a favorite scent for yoga practice. Lavender reminds me of a favorite teacher. My Pumpkin spice diffuser reminds me, it’s time to bake, which is a bit of a distraction!

  • Serenity by DoTerra has to be one of the most heavenly fragrances I’ve experienced in yoga classes. Hints of Lavender, touches of amber, notes of eucalyptus, it’s literally a symphony for your nose. My students love it and so do I!!!!

  • Ann Van Regan

    The studio I attend is so beautifully cleaned that it is scentless but on a cold(-15C)Canadian day I can smell if snow is coming and then another scent when it is falling. Having a class with the snow falling outside the window is lovely.

  • Dogs! That’s right. I love the smell of my sweet, wonderful dogs. When I’m in Down Dog or any supine position, I can roll my head in one direction or the other and burry my nose into my sweet pups fur. They always smell good to me. If you are a stay-at-home yogi and you have pets, you know what I’m talking about!

    I love the smell of the essential oil blend that our teachers soak our cooling facecloths in. I also love the way our old building smells. It is over 100 years old, and smells of old wood and faded memories. :0)

  • Spearmint or any scent of mint 🙂

  • Kathryn

    While I have my own yoga mats, I prefer not to use them and instead to use one of the “community” mats. The reason I do this is simple, when I press my face against the mat while in bowing pose, I can smell others who have done the same. And in that moment, I am bowing to the infinite within us all…our beautiful fragile humanness that binds us. I smell the fragilities of humanity with my nose pressed against the mat and connect with them.

  • Frankincense & peppermint!

  • Alexis

    Lemon or lavender. Lemon to awaken me and turn my senses up. Lavender to relax and slow it down.

    I like citrus when I’m practicing. It envigorates me!

  • i generally practice in the mornings and teach throughout the day. I give my husband a big hug and kiss just as he leave for work freshly showered and cologned every so often as I flow through my vinyasa, I smell him on my skin or in my hair and it grounds me and makes me remember all of my blessings. He inspires me to keep practicing and teaching and supports all of my dreams in growing my small private yoga business. He, my children and my practice are the foundations of gratitude and peace in my life.
