Our sense of smell is not only functional, but also intuitive: it’s saturated with wisdom about the world around as well as our internal universe. Yogis are sensual in that they draw upon all of their senses to live and breathe the practice. There’s a method to a yogi’s engagement with each of her senses, some more prescribed than others. Of course there are Ayurvedic and scientific explanations for why we respond to one scent over another, but sometimes, it’s fun to just feel out what works for us and what doesn’t.
Apply a few drops of your favourite oil directly to skin and enjoy yoga practice.
