Description

Hand gestures, called mudras, can change the breath and energy states. They are a yoga practice that is portable and mudras can be practiced anywhere, anytime. Every individual receives the effect of the mudra in a similar way, while subtle differences may be present. These hand gestures have a long tradition of practice within yoga and Buddhism. Mudras exist within Western culture, too, such as the peace sign, the OK sign, and even that hand gesture that we use when driving to signal anger and aggression.

In this powerful four-week online program, experience the influence of mudras on your mood state. Each week has a different theme with 4 – 5 different mudras. These mudras are categorized for ease of teaching. However, you may find a mudra to be profound when you do not expect it.

During this webinar series, you will:

  • learn the origin and basics of mudra,
  • experience changes in your breath and energy,
  • practice visualization (bhavana), sound (mantra) and meditation with mudra,
  • receive a 100 page manual with pictures, meditation scripts, and self-inquiry question, and
  • access to the recordings of the webinars in perpetuity

Webinar 1: Basics of Mudra & Energizing Mudras for Depression
Learn some simple basics of the hands and what each finger represents. After some basic philosophy, we will practice mudras that bring the energy upward. These mudras are excellent for early morning practice, when attention or focus is needed, as well as for anyone suffering from depression.

Webinar 2: Mudras to Calm Anxiety
In a fast-paced world full of deadlines and a 24-hour news cycle, anxiety seems to be at an all-time high. We will practice mudras to bring the energy down. These mudras are excellent for anxious moments, calming the mind before bed, and for anyone suffering from anxiety.

Webinar 3: Mudras to Soothe & Empower
We all experience trauma in some form. Some will develop PTSD in relation to our traumas, some will not. We will practice mudras that empower, help to envision and develop appropriate boundaries, and impart an experience of strength and personal power.

Webinar 4: Mudras to Instill Balance
“Beingness” is one of the goals of yoga. We can experience this as a balanced emotional and energetic state, also known as “calm and ready.” We will practice mudras that bring us to a state of balance and meditation. These mudras are excellent for bringing about clarity, deeper breaths, and a general sense of well-being.

Webinar 5: Mudras with Essential Oils
Essential oils are a great component for stabilizing the mood. Learn how essential oils work and how to incorporate essential oils into your mudra meditation practice.
