February's Theme of the Month is Mudra
Our February Theme of the Month is Mudra
The word “Mudra” is Sanskrit for seal (as in the old fashioned wax-impression kind), mark, or gesture.
Kelly McGonigal, Stanford University professor of psychology, yoga, and meditation, wrote, “Mudra (hand gesture) is a method of citta-bhavana, or cultivating a specific state of mind. There are dozens of mudras, and each represents a certain quality, such as compassion, courage, or wisdom. It is believed that, by practicing mudra, you awaken the seeds of these states within you.”
“But the power of these seemingly simple hand gestures goes far beyond adding focus to your practice. Mudras can remind you of two important pieces of yogic wisdom. First, you are already whatever you seek to be. It’s easy to see courage and wisdom in the stories and images of Hindu deities or the Buddha. It’s much more difficult to see that those qualities reside in you. Mudras can remind you that these are not traits that you either have or don’t have. They are states that you consciously choose to feel and express. Second, mudra practice can help you find a way to translate good intentions into skillful actions. Mudras are the bridge between your inner spiritual experience and your outer interactions with the world. Actions speak louder than words, and mudras are like prayers translated into physical form.”

I have to say I went to be yoga yesterday in Carmel and it was absolutely amazing! I haven’t felt this great in awhile and I had so much energy the next day. I think im going to start doing this weekly. The staff was amazing and so friendly and helpful.New Student
