What is sound healing, and how does it work? In this three-part journey, we will learn to invite sound into our healing, resting and meditation practices. Sound can be a simple and powerful way to reset the body and mind. Sound healing does not require musical experience, or instruments beyond the breathe and body. Each week, we will come together to understand the basic fundamentals of sound therapies, exploring the relationship between music and mood. With Manju.

Mudra and Meditation: An Introduction

Dates: Thursday, May 02, 2024 - Thursday, May 16, 2024
Location: Lighthouse Yoga Center

$45 general/$38 members

6:30-7:15pm, in-person

Join Manju for a three-session introductory practice of mudras (gestures) as a tool for meditation and concentration. Every week, we will practice two to three hand gestures (hasta mudras) focused on a different aspect of our bodies. We will begin with mudras to connect with our physical bodies, transitioning to our emotional, and spiritual bodies. As we meditate to connect with our energetic centers (chakras) and restore inner calm, using Mudras can enhance awareness and deepen our ability to recognize and respond to the body's messages. A mudra meditation practice can be an accessible path when rigorous physical movement is difficult. Mudras are a vast world connecting ritual, dance, and symbolism - This class is an excellent introduction for those curious about incorporating mudras into their yoga and meditation practice.
