Yogandha founder, Sinead Duffy, has a degree in Philosophy and did her first formal meditation training almost 30 years ago. She added Hatha Yoga years later – with teacher training in Sivananda and Vivekananda in India in 2005, where she discovered Gandha – the use of fragrant herbal ritual to deepen the meditative state and daily mindfulness. Sinead spent three years meditating and blending on the Sankalp of her yoga students and six oils emerged that form the Yogandha range.
Sinead says: “Other yoga and meditation teachers write books, the oils are my form of distillation of meditative wisdom – it’s a different form of language – a pre-linguistic, meditative and energetic form of communication. The wisdom is just as potent and the body can hear it and embody it in an instant.” Sinead will be bringing Yogandha to Market Place.
Gandha – that is using fragrant substances (sandalwood, jasmine etc) to bring depth to our meditative practice – is as old as yoga itself. Sinead will talk you through the how and the why of Gandha – how it affects the meditative mind and daily rituals we can use to deepen our practice and teaching. This will be a talk – with experiential learning – doing meditative rituals with sacred oils for embodied learning.Read More
