Personal Aromatherapy: The newest addition to a Modern Yoga Practice writes that “Aromatherapy increases the focus necessary for the yoga poses.” MONQ makes this process easier, more effective, and more personal.

Many yoga teachers light candles or anoint their students with essential oils. But with MONQ’s personal essential oil diffusers, you are in control. It’s your practice, it’s your experience. When you pick up a MONQ diffuser, you’re holding the key to an ancient wellness art, enhanced for the modern age.

Zen MONQ Original Diffuser

MONQ is profound in its synthesis of ancient and modern. It is quickly becoming a staple within our local yoga community.

try MONQ at your studio


At your next yoga practice, take a few gentle breaths of Zen right when you enter the studio. MONQ’s flagship blend made with orange, frankincense, and ylang-ylang, is designed to inspire a restorative and focused calm, and will help set the stage for a strong practice.

During a vinyasa or ashtanga practice (or any session with athletic asanas), take a few breaths of Vibrant, an energizing blend made with geranium, hyssop, and bergamot (as well as grapefruit and spearmint). Keep the diffuser next to your mat during practice, and you’ll quickly learn how often you enjoy taking additional breaths.

As your practice winds down, reach for Zen as you enter Savasana. A few more gentle breaths will bring your practice full-circle, back to the focused calm you created at the start. Yoga is what we do on AND off the mat, and as you leave the studio, MONQ will stay with you as a trigger for the positive state developed during practice.

Yoga teachers are increasingly integrating essential oils into the yoga experience. And with good reason: These aromatic compounds—found in plant seeds, bark, stems, roots, and flowers—have long been a favorite with the aromatherapy crowd and those who tout the oils’ ability to enhance mental and emotional wellness, relieve sore muscles, and support physical and spiritual well-being.

Yoga and aromatherapy are holistic and ancient practices, both offering physical, mental and spiritual benefits for the practitioner. The use of aromatherapy blends while practicing yoga can enhance the practitioner’s experience and benefits from both therapeutic areas.
