First off, I love Ellen’s handwriting– how beautiful it this? I also enjoyed her morning routine–such a special way to wake up :)
I was lucky enough to be invited to one of Ellen’s salt yoga classes at Breathe Easy. I was a little nervous about practicing yoga in a room that was fully covered in salt ( and it turns out salt is also pumped into the air which you can taste slightly on your lips.) The class was a slower pace, Hatha style, which helped you use your core and focus on balancing (**rember your feet are on a mat that’s over salt!) We focused on our breathing taking deep breaths together and filling our lungs with the salty air.
My skin felt wonderful after class. I asked if we should shower and Ellen said it was up to us. She explained that even just being in a salt room is good for lung conditions (allergies, asthma, etc) and skin conditions (rashes, acne, etc) **Check out all the benefits here) some people use the space just to relax and read.
If you suffer from allergies, skin conditions or want to try something new/different I highly recommend you check it out!
