mindfully restoring balance to increase vitality and help extend the life of your career as a hairdresser
Whether you are new to yoga or an experienced yogi, Souldresser Retreats welcomes you to the mat. As hairdressers, our bodies are machines that we push to the limits. We work long hours, stand in awkward positions, and rarely take them in for an oil change. At all of our workshops and retreats, yoga is how we start each day. We customize our classes just for hairstylists, focusing on the parts of our bodies where we need it most. Yoga helps correct our posture so that we can extend the life of our careers as hairdressers. It allows you to clear your mind, decompress, release stress, breathe, and give back to your body the love that you give to others.
Yoga teaches us to push past our limitations of the mind. To move through discomfort. It teaches us to listen to our bodies and to connect to our breath. Yoga isn’t a practice that lives only on our mats, it lives inside of us. Life is a yoga practice.
Meditation is a dedication and devotion to yourself. It is the largest and strongest form of self-care. Many people think meditation is difficult. In our Souldresser Retreats workshops, we teach you simple tools to take home that make it easy to add to your weekly routine. Most people believe that meditation is all about clearing your mind when really it’s about strengthening our awareness. By removing the intention of “clearing your mind”, you then remove the possibility of failure. It gives you permission to just be however you are. If your mind wanders, it’s good. It allows you to return back to your breath. That very moment of recognition when you return your focus back to your breath is strengthening your ability to make peace with your thoughts. With an intention of compassion, we are able to experience our higher self and our deeper truths. In our workshops, we will practice meditation so you can learn just how enriching it can truly be.
We all learned in high school science class that matter is made up of atoms and molecules. Even something that is solid, such as a pair of scissors, is vibrating all the time. As humans, we are vibrating too. When we say someone has "good vibes," or a good “aura,” we are really talking about that person's vibrational energy. Happy people vibrate on a higher frequency! You can feel it.
As hairstylists, we use science every day in our color labs and our styling tools and products. You don't need to completely grasp the concept of energy to experience its benefits. Learn to tap into your own vibrational frequency, change it when you want to, and use it to manifest the life you desire. Take home tools to create a better energy in and out of the salon. You are a powerhouse, light shit up!
