The hand gestures (called mudras) are applied while practicing meditation and are an integral part of the posture. It has been found by the rishis throughout the ages that forming the correct hand gesture during meditation leads to a deeper meditative state. The word bandha means a “hold”, or “lock” and they are used to control flow of pranic energy within the body. Bandhas are a very important group of yogic techniques used during meditation. This workshop will introduce those mudras that are recommended for meditational practices, and bandhas that are a preliminary for advanced meditation practice. Participants are suggested to dress comfortably and bring own meditation pillow.
