What is Joy and Vitality Yoga?
Combining Himalayan Salt, HaloTherapy, Colour Therapy Techniques (Chromotherapy), Crystals, Tibetan and Crystal Bowls, No Mirrors, Organic Scents and Warm Essential Oils Infused Face Cloths to creative an immersive, multi sensory yoga experience Calgary not yet seen before.
Are you wondering how Color Therapy relates to Yoga? Great! We are happy to explain. Color therapy, also known as Chromotherapy, is the principle that certain colors are infused with healing powers. The Seven Chakra Colors of the rainbow improve mind, body, spirit balance and healing.
According to the Yogic tradition, there are seven Chakras (meaning “wheels”), or energy centers, which concentrate and distribute life-force energy throughout the body. Our Chakras correspond to all aspects and areas of our lives. When the energy is flowing abundantly and easily we enjoy life, however when a chakra is imbalanced we can experience difficulties and or dis-ease within our bodies. Everyday we use the colors of the chakra to increase the experience of the class.

Yoga and salt therapy (halotherapy) is said to have many health benefits, so combining salt therapy and yoga is a win-win situation!
Some of the many benefits of yoga include:
- Increased blood flow
- Improved cardiovascular conditioning
- Lower blood pressure
- Increased happiness
- Better immune function
- Lower blood sugar
- Increased focus
- Improved balance
- Improved REM sleep
- Pain relief
The benefits of breathing in salt vapours include (HaloTherapy):
- Improved lung capacity
- Reduced respiratory allergies
- Detoxification of your bodily systems
- Reduction in germs
- Decreased severity of skin conditions including eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis
- Decreased severity of chronic respiratory illnesses including asthma, emphysema and bronchitis
- Reduced chest congestion, cough, sore throat and sinusitis
- Decreased depression
- Improved sleep
Touching and breathing salt during yoga can help your body absorb trace minerals it commonly lacks including magnesium and chromium. Magnesium helps maintain the balance of other nutrients and is also important to the functioning of various enzymes, as well as your heart, kidneys and muscles. Chromium aids in moving glucose from your bloodstream into your cells to be stored as energy. Since yoga encourages deep breathing, the deeper you breathe the salt vapours into your lungs, the more beneficial the healing effects. The calming effects of both salt therapy and yoga combined with the health benefits of both allow you to experience a holistic relaxation therapy.
Below is an explanation of the seven chakra colors, what they represent, their meanings and affirmations.

- Tuesday – Sacral Chakra (Orange Color) – I love and enjoy my body.
- Wednesday – Solar Plexus Chakra (Yellow Color) – I direct my own life
- Thursday – Heart Chakra (Pink/Green Color) – All love resides within my heart
- Friday – Throat Chakra (Blue Color) – I communicate my feelings with ease
- Saturday – Third Eye Chakra (Violet Color) – I listen to my deepest wisdom
