ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
Join meditation guide and yoga therapist, Jennifer Carrera in this one of a kind workshop exploring the subtle body through mudras and breath-work.
Spend 90-minutes diving into the more subtle aspects of meditation as we breakdown the basics and how to of breathing and begin to work with hand gestures (mudras).
A mudra is Sanskrit word for gesture as commonly seen in statures of Buddha. Depending on how we touch our hands on our body or place our fingertips together, it helps to direct awareness and energy to a part or system of the body and cultivate a certain effect (such as energizing or relaxing). Mudras can be a powerful addition to your personal practice or teaching and bring in the more subtle aspects of meditation, facilitating a deeper connection to the inner body.
When we focus on our breath, we focus on what is called our life force energy. Through various breathing practices, we can move and expand energy throughout the body by way of the breath.
We will begin with a short breathing practice to open the lungs and start moving the flow of energy through the body. There will be discussion of the mechanics of breathing and basic principles of mudras. Interwoven through the workshop, experiential and guided practices will be offered, with opportunities to share your experience with the group if you choose. It is through this noticing of how the different practices affect you personally, that you will discover how these modalities support what you are needing throughout the day, or in your practice, to enhance the quality of your life.
No experience needed. Just an openness to learn and play.
