Restorative Aerial Silks, Goddess Dance, Soundbath, and MORE! Practice of the Week: Showing up for your practice in studio is amazing, AND there is something extra magical about showing up for your practice outside of the studio. The URU team desires to support you in deepening your personal practice and to empower you to take learning and practicing into your own hands. This week we invite you to explore a meditation with mudras (hand gestures). Prana/Apana Meditation In Yogic philosophy the Sanskrit word Prana translates to life-force. Prana is said to move through the body in five different ways, these are called vayus, the Sanskrit word for wind. An easy way to work with your vayus is through the vehicle of the breath. Note that Pranayama is commonly translated as breathwork. Apana Vayu is the eliminating and downward force. Prana Vayu is the intake. For the practice of the week you can meditate using these two mudras. On the inhale, take prana mudra. You can say to yourself internally, “I am aware that I am inhaling.” On the exhale, take apana mudra. You can say to yourself internally, “I am aware that I am exhaling.” Try doing this for at least five minutes while in a comfortable seated position. Allow yourself time to just be with your breath and body. Tutorial here! Happy practicing! JOIN US THIS WEEKEND…..
