Gemstone pieces are considered fine pieces of jewelry. Crystals and gemstones should be treated with care, avoid getting them wet or exposing to extreme heat or cold - this can damage the crystals and fade their coloring. Given their energetic properties, charge your crystals in the windowsill during the full moon, + most importantly, wear your piece with INTENTION!
Stainless steel components + layering pieces are silver, gold or rose gold plated. These metals wear incredibly well, even when worn daily. In time, an antiquing effect known as patina may show its love and wear, and does not harm the piece of jewelry. Plated hematite spacers are used in gemstone jewelry. Certain ph levels in one’s skin may cause this natural patina effect to occur quicker in these accents but does not affect the crystals themselves.
Virtual Yin Yoga
Join us every Thursday evening for an hour of yin yoga from the comfort of your own home via Zoom. Classes take place from 7 to 8pm CST, and recordings are available should you be unable to join live.
Classes are geared towards all levels. You can expect an opening discussion/theme, followed by meditation/breathwork, and yin postures with modifications to meet your body where it is.
Yin classes are a beautiful way to nurture your physical body, to bring deep relaxation. The yin practice involves holding yoga asana (postures) for a longer length of time, it serves to stress and release the connective tissues, while improving joint health. As we slow the body, we slow down the breath, and slow down the mind.
The Zoom link and details will be sent out within 24-48 hours.
