I hypothesized that if I used a mask to clear away dead skin cells, my skin would clear up faster. I alternated a glycolic mask with an activated charcoal mask and applied it once a day for the majority of the experiment. I believe this helped to speed up the process of skin cell renewal and reduce pore blockages. I already removed my makeup and cleaned my face with almond oil and I was very interested in the oil treatment called Shirodhara so, I called and made an appointment with an ayurveda practitioner for the treatment along with a massage. I went to Jante Beauty Salon for the treatment. It was very relaxing and the treatment consisted of a mini-facial followed by the Shirodhara oil drip over my forehead and through my hair. I had the treatment performed in the evening which contributed to the relaxation it produced before bedtime. The treatment lasted two hours but she called it the mini treatment which may be added alongside a massage. I enjoyed it immensely and had no trouble removing the oil the next day by adding shampoo before water while washing my hair. The practitioner was able to guess that my dosha was Pitta and some Vata which impressed me.
The Denver Yoga Underground began in 2003 at the request of dedicated students who wanted to study yoga as a holistic system. Over the years, a diversity of people, seeking education outside of a studio, found a welcome refuge in DYU.
Today we specialize in grassroots Pay What You Can workshops, accessible retreats and our signature yoga teacher training, for the outlier yogi.
