Hand Mudras to Support Physical and Mental Health

January 30, 2017 6:30 – 8:00 pm 

hand mudras varuna

Instructor: Autumn Adams

Location: Midtown Juniper Yoga Bend, 369 NE Revere Ave., Bend, Oregon 97701

Everything you do with your hands is an expression of your heart and your inner state of being. Think about it: blowing a kiss, a high five in triumph, caressing a partner or cuddling a pet are all ways you express the feelings that are beating within you. Conversely, are you flipping the bird? Clenching your fist? Gripping the steering wheel? Typing frantically?

Yoga’s hand expressions are called mudras, which are said to shift energies from what we might be experiencing (stress, anger, frustration, sadness) to how we want to feel. With the stressful and often toxic pace of modern life, the ability to change your state of mind by making different shapes with your hands is nothing short of a personal superpower. And, while the physical effort is minimal, the energetic influence can be huge.

What’s Included: Brief intro and lecture of the mudras, mudra practice, and a printed handout.
What to Wear: Comfortable clothes you can sit in.
What to Bring: Water, Journal and Pen
Cost: $20/pp in advance
Note: For your own comfort please do not have a large meal before the class.

** All ages and abilities are welcome. No yoga experience required.**
** Limited to 20 participants.**

Alignment to Empower Your Practice Yoga Workshop

March 31-April 2, 2017

plank-pose-for-a-strong-core

Instructor: Peggy Profant, E-RYT 500 and Certified Anusara Yoga Teacher

Location: Fitness 1440 Redmond, 3853 SW 21st St #107, Redmond, OR 97756

 

In this playful, 4 session workshop we will learn the Universal Principles of Alignment that will strengthen your practice as well as allow healing and greater ease in the asana poses. These principles and refinements of the principles align your body with its Optimal Blueprint; a place where your inner body and your outer body are aligned in the best possible way for the energy to flow.  Each session will include a philosophical explanation to compliment the physical adjustment. It is an exquisite system of alignment that you can take into all your yoga poses, thus naming it “Universal”. Intended for students of all levels. An excellent resource for teachers who want to understand the biomechanics of the body and access a therapeutic methodology for physical adjustments to enhance the yoga experience.

Friday March 31st. 6pm – 8pm Session 1: Grounding the Sky– Open to the Big Picture and bring it to your physical reality. We set the foundation for the practice with a spacious attitude and we fortify our intentions with active engagement. This is the basis for protecting our joints and allowing a place of stability for the internal expansion to happen.

Saturday April 1st , 11am-1:30pm  Session 2: Spiral into your core values- Using the body’s natural ability to spiral inward, we connect deeply into the pelvic core allowing a freedom in the hips and relief in the lower back. Great for knees too!

Saturday April 1st,  3:30- 6pm Session 3: Standing Strong- With an emphasis on aligning the lower body and establishing core connection, we set the foundation for freedom of the spine.

Sunday April 2nd,  11am-1:30pm Session 4: Trust in the Universal, Deeper expression of the Heart. Upper body alignment supports shoulders, neck and the ability to experience the back body as a source of support for opening of the heart.

Price: All 4 sessions, $100, Early bird,(one week prior) $85. Individual classes, $30 or $25 Early bird. Highly recommended to take all 4 as they build upon each other.

Yoga instructor Autumn Adams will lead the class through a series of self-massage exercises that stimulate and massage the Marma points of the body using tennis balls, yoga blocks and other yoga props. A Marma point (117 in total) is defined as an anatomical site where two or more types of body tissues come together (muscles, veins, bones, ligaments, etc.). Like acupuncture, these points correlate with different internal organs and systems of the body.

The Marma Point Self Massage will help relieve tension accumulated from weight lifting, poor posture and muscular imbalance in the back, neck and shoulders.  In addition, to releasing tension and tightness in the sacrum, glutes, IT band, hamstrings, calves, and particularly the feet. After the Marma Point Self Massage, the class will move into a gentle all-level yoga flow, which Autumn likes to call Holistic Flow or “feel good yoga”. Marma Point Self Massage reduces muscular tightness and tension and improves circulation of blood and lymph, improves energy, and reduces the symptoms caused by a stressful, fast paced life style. This workshop is appropriate for all levels of physical fitness. No yoga experience necessary!
