Introduction to Mudras and Pranayama Workshop

Date: Sunday, June 30 1:00pm-3:00pm
Instructor:Jess Beu
Cost: $35.00
Location: Building 1

Join Jess, yoga therapist, for a workshop to learn two aspects of yoga that deal with the subtle body. Most students who practice yoga are familiar with physical postures and movements called asasna.  This workshop will introduce students to basic breathing practices (pranayama) and hand gestures (mudras) to work with subtle/energy body and how to incorporate these tools in asana and meditation practice.

The benefits to connecting with the subtle body in yoga include taking us temporarily away from the physical and mental bodies to create a calm and peaceful state and reduce our stress response.  Pranayama, or yogic breathing has been shown to reduce stress, increase heart variability, improve oxygenation, strengthen the respiratory muscles and relieve symptoms of depression and anxiety.  Mudras are physical gestures that direct and focus the flow of energy in the subtle body. They can be used in conjunction with pranayama, asana and meditation to enhance the energetic effects of each practice. Simple pranayama techniques and mudras will be taught and practiced during the workshop and students will experientially learn practices to both ground energy and stimulate the subtle body to take our yoga practice to a deeper level.  This workshop is appropriate for all levels of yoga experience

We are taking our "worry dolls" to the next level with Guardian Angel & Spirit Guides Dolls! We all have Guardian angels and Spirit Guides but most of us can't see them.
