Category Archives: Rituals

Rituals are a big part of our everyday life. Whether you’re a beginner, an avid yogi or a meditation person, you are performing rituals even without realizing it.

There are little things that we do to help us concentrate, to create a calm space for our practice, to relax, to detoxify our bodies and minds and so on. These habits come naturally and may be unnoticeable sometimes but we need them.

These Diary Posts are meant to introduce you to a how-to rituals series that here at Aladastra, we believe are necessary for self-care practices.

We want to help you find ways where sometimes we put obstacles on ourselves, in order to promote your own physical, mental, and emotional health.

Exlpore a world of rituals like burning Palo Santo, Smudging, Cleansing and more.

Keep up with our Diary weekly!
