Mudras are yogi hand positions maintained in meditations and exercise practices that make subtle connections in our energetic physiology. Mudra means “seal” in Sanskrit and they are used to seal the body’s energy flow in a particular pattern.
This workshop will begin with pranayama (breathing exercises) and some warm-ups. Participants will learn and practice several different mudras and will have opportunities to take part in two meditations, utilizing mudras.
People new to yoga and practitioners of any yoga tradition will find this workshop interactive, interesting, and informative. Participants are welcome to practice either on a mat or in a chair.

Laughter is the best medicine! Laughter Yoga is the practice of combining laughter exercises with yogic breathing. The many benefits of laughter include: lowering the negative effects of stress, oxygenating the body and brain, and improving mood and overall health. The concept of Laughter Yoga is based on a scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter if done with willingness.
One gets the same health benefits, whether laughter is real or simulated. It was started by a medical doctor, Dr. Madan Kataria, in India in 1995. There are thousands of Laughter Clubs in more than 106 countries!
