Mudra, Hand Yoga for Health (W)
Aug. 2-Sep. 20, 11 a.m.-12 p.m. Free-Walk-in Mudra is Sanskrit for seal, mark, or gesture. Mudras hand gestures are used during meditation as a way to direct energy flow in the body. According to yoga, different areas of the hand can stimulate specific areas of the brain. By applying light pressure to these areas of the hand, you are able to activate the corresponding region of the brain. Different positions of the hand will improve memory, eyesight, and hearing. It also has a calming effect. This class will begin with gentle stretches and acupressure for relaxation followed by Mudras, meditation and music. This will be facilitated by Town of Barnstable Public Health Nurse, Peg Stanton.
