Men- Yoga/Oils

Welcome, gentlemen, this page is just for you!  It is not just women who get stressed out, whose bodies ache and who are open to natural forms of healthcare.

I am so happy that a growing number of men are coming to the studio for Yoga to de-stress, to ease muscles and to support their athletic/running routine.

Here is a testimonial from a regular student who I am so happy has received so many benefits…

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Simon Kane: 3rd Yoga session done tonight…loved it, definitely recommend for other runners.
a year later….
I feel so lucky to have found Bamboo Yoga, Karen and the other teachers at the studio are so friendly and knowledgeable, the classes are relaxed and welcoming. I have been attending regularly for a little over a year and I am amazed at the progress I have made physically, mentally and emotionally without ever feeling any pressure to do so. As a middle aged, non-bendy bloke, I was sceptical about yoga, but realised I would benefit from some guided stretching – The classes here have completely changed my view of Yoga and hence my attitude to life in general. If you have ever wondered whether yoga is for you, you couldn’t find a better place to give it a shot!

I am equally happy to see a growing number of men on my doTERRA oil team, using the oils, and feeling the benefits in their lives.

Below are some ideas of how men can use these powerful doTERRA essential oils in their lives.

1. Exercise

These are essential for active men, and also non active! We all get aches and pains, the same muscles that we use for exercising tend to get tight from too much driving and sitting! This oil and product converted my husband to recognise the amazing benefits and provided him instant relief from back ache that would not be eased by over the counter remedies.

Before exercise, apply Deep Blue roll-on to your ankles, knees and any area that tends to be sore or achy after exercise, the oils in this blend will travel around the blood and provide support and relief. Post workout, massage doTERRA Deep Blue Rub into your skin after a workout for a cooling sensation that provides relief from minor muscle and joint aches, arthritis, strains, bruises, and sprains. This pain cream will have your muscles thanking you for only using natural ingredients, think Deep Heat but stronger and just addictive without all the petro chemicals and toxins.
Inhale Peppermint oil to pep you up and get you energised before a workout, this also aids the respiratory system to open the airways, and helps the digestive system, great for pain on muscles, and headaches and is an amazing natural breath freshener.

The oils are safe for internal consumption, so you can out lemon, orange, grapefruit, or smart and sassy in your water, to get additional benefits.

2. Personal Care   To function as well as possible, its great to get artificial perfumes and toxic chemicals out of our lives. They all enter the blood stream and can affect immunity, You can blend your own aftershave or aftershave balm with the oils and a little fractionated coconut oil to smell amazing naturally.
Oils great for aftershave are … Patchouli, Cedarwood, Bergamot, Sandalwood, Black Pepper, Console, Vetiver, Frankincense, Lavender, Rosemary, Anchor, Douglas Fir, have a play to see what works best with your body’s chemistry. Here is a video of one man who loves and uses the oils.

doTERRA do a range of face washes, HD Clear Foaming Face Wash is perfect for male skin, followed by some frankincense to support aging skin, sun spots and a moisturiser.

3. Nutrition  doTERRA do an amazing range of supplements, the science behind them is amazing, as well as a Deep Blue capsule to support athletic training, inflammation, arthritis, good cardio health and much more.
