MUDRA WORKSHOP for Shakti Power & Awareness
Mudras, which have the sanskrit roots “to be liked” and “to lighten/brighten up” are hand gestures used during asanas, meditation, prayer and sacred dance said to delight the deities. Often overlooked in classic vinyasa settings, these powerful and ancient symbols speak the poetry of the earth and creation expressed pictorally with the hands. Coming out of the Tantric Tradition honoring the beauty of Shakti power, sensuality and awareness, mudras are meant to “seal”an asana and carry-out its full expression. In this simple, hands on workshop activating over 35 sub chakras in the hands we will learn mudras for planetary awareness, receptivity, transformation our of suffering, death of the ego, transcendental knowing, ancestral communion, sexual and digestive health and overall mind-body balance and wellness.
Day of the Event $25
