Mudras and Bandhas


  • Raumati South New Zealand (map)

The limitless human potential is often deeply hidden within us, not just beneath our psyche, but also within the layers of conscious and unconscious patterning. Unlocking them to fully manifest into our lives is a key aspect of personal growth and spiritual development. This process requires sustained effort and the practice of powerful tools, under careful guidance and supervision. The role of Mudra-s & Bandha-s can serve as a vital instrument in this process of personal evolution. Mudra-s are very intricate tools of Yoga, that harness the fire within us to help nourish the inherent seeds of our capabilities. They are discussed extensively in classical texts such as Hathayogapradipika & Siva Samhita, as well as modern classics such as Yoga Makaranda of T Krishnamacharya.
When appropriately practiced together with a sophisticated system of breath and visualization, Mudra-s & Bandha-s touch different layers of the human system and aid in our positive transformation. Owing to the great power it can harness, the Yogi-s showed great respect to these tools and only learnt and practiced under watchful guidance. They also understood and considered all the pre-requisites these tools required, before practicing themselves or teaching them to others.
This enriching seminar will explore the most important Mudra-s in detail, presenting the core principles and frameworks within which they must be understood and practiced. The program will deal with presenting pre-requisites for the practice of each Mudra, the technical nuances of their practice, benefits and contraindications.
The seminar will present previously unknown material on these very subtle concepts of Yoga and how to apply them carefully in personal practice or in the practice of students.This seminar will be most useful to serious practitioners of Yoga, as well as Yoga Teachers and Trainers who are wanting to take their practice to the next level. Guidelines of self-observation on the effects of such practices will also be provided and participants will also be offered opportunities to explore these further.
