Mantra (meaning “to transcend") is the science of sound. Mantras are formulas that are vibrations of cosmic prāna (energy) molding and shaping our inner space which help us go beyond the different layers of the mind and ego (mano, chitta, buddha and ahamkar).
Mudra means “gesture” or “expression”. Hand mudras enhance circulation and bring circulation to the diseased part of the body and thereby unfolds cellular awareness. It brings prāna (energy) to where prāna is lacking.
As we experience daily life, mental stress can wear down the body’s intelligence, vigor, and vitality. Physical stress through improper diet or lifestyle according to our nature can also cause disharmony in our physical body.
In this workshop, we will learn simple yet powerful pranayamas, mantras and mudras that will bring healing to our imbalance. Some mantras are directly awakening the intelligence of a particular organ, known as “Bija mantras” (or Beeja mantras) while others are a formula of a few words. These words are in Sanskrit, the oldest language known. Sanskrit is a vibrational language. Like music, regardless of which language is your mother tongue, music still touches and awakens our inner waters, thereby you don’t have to “believe” in this. It is a science, quoting Victoria’s teacher dr. Vasant Lad: "believe it or not, it works”;.
Please wear comfortable clothing as we will be sitting for longer periods. Also, please refrain from drinking coffee three hours before the workshop as this might affect the level of depth in the experience. Have a notepad and pen ready to take notes.
