Palo Santo

A Bit of History: The Sacred Tree of the Incas

Palo Santo, which means "Holy Wood" in Spanish, has been used for centuries by indigenous cultures in South America. The Incas, in particular, revered this sacred wood for its purifying and healing properties. Harvested sustainably from fallen branches and trees, Palo Santo is not only a spiritual tool but also a practice in environmental respect and sustainability.

Benefits of Palo Santo in Yoga Practice

  1. Enhanced Meditation: The soothing, earthy aroma of Palo Santo is perfect for meditation. It helps clear the mind of distractions, allowing for deeper focus and a more profound meditative state.

  2. Energy Cleansing: Burning Palo Santo can purify the energy in a yoga studio, removing negativity and inviting positive vibrations. This creates a conducive environment for both individual practice and group sessions.

  3. Grounding and Centering: The calming properties of Palo Santo aid in grounding practitioners, making it easier to connect with the present moment and your inner self.

  4. Aromatherapy Benefits: Palo Santo's scent has been known to reduce stress and anxiety, promoting a sense of peace and relaxation.

How to Use Palo Santo in Your Yoga Practice

  • Before Class: Light a Palo Santo stick and let the smoke fill the room before students arrive. This sets a peaceful tone and cleanses the space of any lingering energies.

  • During Meditation: Hold a lit stick and gently waft the smoke around your body or the room. Breathe deeply and allow the aroma to enhance your meditative experience.

  • Post-Practice Ritual: Use Palo Santo to close your practice, sealing in the positive energy and grounding your mind and body.
