Yoga Mudras: Subtle Power at Our Fingertips

Mudras are yoga for the hands, described as a gesture, seal, or lock. Due to the enormous amount of nerve ending found in the fingers and palms, touching certain points together triggers specific signals in the body. Adding mudras to our yoga and meditation practice increases our awareness, presence, and connection to something greater. Mudras are accessible to everyone. Participants will learn mudras that direct energy and healing to specific places in the body, as well as elegant mudra flow sequences for releasing, empowering, and shifting our state of mind. This workshop is hands-on!

A Lifetime Love of Yoga: Absolute Essentials for Children's Yoga Teachers

Teaching yoga to children is vastly different than teaching adults. In this experiential workshop we will explore the critical components that make a children_s class engaging, fun and inspiring for both student and teacher.
