Join us for a nourishing weekend, exploring Mudras integrated with yoga, relaxation and meditation.
Scientists say that body language accounts for 80% of human communication. Mudras are expressions of particular states of consciousness using positions of the hands, head, eyes and full body. They both reflect and also influence states of body, mind and energy. In short, Mudras are conscious body language!

The practices of yoga, including Mudras, awaken, balance and redirect Prana or vital life force thus influencing different realms of experience, be it physical, mental, emotional, psychic or spiritual.

In this weekend, explore Mudras independently and integrated with relaxation, meditation and Hatha yoga classes. Learn about the therapeutic, pranic and spiritual benefits of different Mudras and how to conserve prana for more optimal brain function and enhancement of meditative states.

- Hatha Yoga (including mudras and bandhas)
- Pranayama (breathing techniques with mudras and bandhas)
- Mudras (hand, head, perineal, postural, therapeutic and sadhana mudras)
- Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation) & Meditation
- Flower Ceremony and Kirtan
- Karma Yoga (action with meditative awareness)
