Mudra (1-4 pm)
The hands have an intimate connection with the brain and
according to the theory of mudra practice, the position of the hands can
create energetic seals that influence the mind. In many Hatha yoga
classes, mudra are used to set intentions, make offerings of gratitude,
as part of the physical practice of the postures, and in meditation.
This workshop will offer you an introduction to the history and
philosophy of mudra practice, as well as the alignment, Sanskrit names,
and significance of a few common mudra. We'll practice mudra in
meditation so you can see for yourself how powerful this subtle practice
Mantra (4:30-7:30 pm)
A mantra can be a single word, sound, or
phrase used to invoke and reinforce certain qualities and energy. While
pop culture often uses the word to mean a repeated phrase that
emphasizes a point, the Sanskrit mantra we employ in Hatha yoga practice
are more deeply significant. From the om/aum to the Gayatri Mantra,
this workshop will offer you an introduction to the history, philosophy,
and spiritual significance of mantra. We'll explore a few types of
mantra and you'll discover how and why meditation and mantra are natural
