Mudra, Mantra & Meditation
for Inner Nourishment
This 90 minute workshop is an exploration of a variety of tools used in the art of meditation. Mudra, Mantra and other techniques are used to nourish Prana energy, support maneuvering the mind while cultivating a deeper connection with self, spirit and the world. We will have time for theory, reference various yogic texts, discussion, reflection and most importantly experiential practice.
Often there is little to no exposure to subtler internal yoga practices in a modern yoga class. Or it is taught with no context on their function, power, when or why to use them. This workshop will focus on a deeper understanding of these ancient techniques of filtering (Prana) energy, giving it direction and avoiding a leak. Learn the science, theory and dispel myths while exploring variations among spiritual traditions with cultural awareness. Learn how to integrate these tools meant to nurture and support not only a yoga practice but your mind/body/spiritual connection in everyday life.
What we will cover:
A basic understanding of the meditation tools of mantra, mudra, mandala and mala beads
Theory, science & subtle anatomy based on Nadis/Cakra model
Debunk myths and misconceptions
Discussion on Philosophy, spiritual traditions and cultural appropriation
Pre-practices, seasonal and technical considerations
How to integrate into everyday practice(Sadhana) and everyday life
Time for experiential practice of simple yet powerful mantra and mudra
Time for reflection
After brief explanation of each topic and pre-practices you are invited to explore the greater subtle dimensions of your being with a guided experiential meditation practice using the tools of mudra and mantra.
This is for anyone seeking to explore, expand or deepen their understanding of the power of mudra, mantra and other meditation tools.
*This is a non-asana centered class but some adaptable movements will be offered as a preparatory practice. Please wear comfortable, loose clothing that does not restrict the flow of energy in your body. Also suggested to refrain from caffeine and heavy food two hours before the workshop as this may affect the level of the depth of the practice.
