$108.00 Yoga of the Hands: Using Mudra in Meditation


This six-week introductory practice of hasta mudras (hand gestures) will direct breath and awareness to particular areas of the body. Mudras can enhance awareness and deepen our ability to recognize and respond to the body's messages.

Mudras (hand gestures) are a vast world connecting ritual, dance, and symbolism. Gestures of the hand face and body are part of our everyday body language. When gestures of the hands, face, and body are consciously used to evoke psychological or spiritual attitudes they are called mudras. 

While the use of mudras has been strongly identified with Indian spirituality for over 2000 years, mudras are found in various religious traditions around the world including Christianity where Christ is often depicted using hand gestures. Some mudras are almost universal and one of the most easily recognized is the prayer pose in which hands are placed together in front of our hearts as a symbol of reverence and devotion. Within the Indian spiritual tradition this gesture is called anjali mudra.

The power of mudras to support health and healing rests in their ability to cultivate balance and harmony. Mudras support optimal breathing. In mudra practice the gesture itself guides the breath and has the ability to change the speed, focus, quality and location of our breath. Mudras channel the breath into specific areas of the body. Specific gestures cultivate balance with each facet of our subtle anatomy, including the energy centers (the chakras) the energy currents (the prana vayus) and the energy channels (the nadis.)

This class is an excellent introduction for those curious about a mudra and meditation practice.
