SKIN OF THE YOGI: Natural Skin Care From Your Pantry
Back Bay Yoga, Friday Dec 3, 12-2
The chemical nature of most of the products available for body care is a problem for your health, and for your watershed. This workshop will beautify you AND the planet by teaching alternative ways of caring for skin and hair, using familiar ingredients which aren’t hard to come by. India’s ancient healing system of Ayurveda provided a sophisticated beauty regimen for royalty, using only ingredients found in nature. It’s time for you to treat yourself like royalty. This workshop is strategically scheduled at Christmas, because home facial kits make great gifts!
