Holistic Nutrition and Yoga 08:00 AM - 06:00 PM

Holistic Nutrition and Yoga

Nutrition is the act of being nourished and the processes by which an animal or plant takes in and utilizes food substances. Holistic refers to the belief that you need to look at the whole, interconnected person. Therefore, holistic nutrition can be defined as is the process of taking food into the body and absorbing the nutrients in those foods based on the principle that everything is connected in some way. In this training we will explore nutrition in the content of the 8 limbs of yoga and create a greater understanding of Ayurvedic principles and western nutrition.  

In addition to the recommended book below, we also recommend this digital textbook. You are welcome to download the book or read it in your browser.

Integrating Mudras into Practice 11:00 AM - 08:00 PM
close
Integrating Mudras into Practice

When we think of a yoga practice, we often think of physical postures (asana), breathing techniques (pranayama), and meditation. For most people, a lesser-known part of yoga is mudras. The term mudra is a Sanskrit word meaning “gesture” or “seal”. Mudras can be described as self-acupressure with the thumb and each finger taking on significance of meaning depending on how they are positioned and brought together. The hands are loaded with sensory and motor nerve endings that communicate to the brain creating the potential for powerful shifts in physical, psychological, and spiritual awakenings. In this training, we will learn the history and science behind mudras, their benefits, and the interrelation of mudras with koshas, vayus, chakras, meridians, and the five elements. We will experience and learn how to incorporate mudras in various ways into a yoga practice with pranayama, meditation, and yoga postures for both our students and ourselves.
