Mudras, Mantra and Naam Yoga
Chanting mantras is widely believed to activate acupressure points in the mouth, stimulate the neuro‐endocrine system and release old patterns in the mind. The intentional use of healing mudras is a science that impacts all five elements within the human body. In this intensive, we will learn specific mantra and mudra series and 20 mudras for the most common ailments like insomnia, depression, head and stomach issues and mental disturbance. The ancient yogis knew the power of sound, postures, and the hidden forces in our hands. Mantra, asanas and mudras are all used in yoga to help unlock the Kundalini energy that lies latent in all of us.
We are thrilled to have Siddhi Ellinghoven from California here to teach this weekend intensive. She is a long-time yoga teacher and trainer – in meditation, Kundalini, Naam, Sattva and Prenatal Yoga.
On Friday evening:
We will take a Journey through the Chakras. We will learn about their potential, benefits, challenges, their associated mudras, and how we relate through them to the world
On Saturday, we will:
- Learn different pranayam techniques
- Learn practical applications for using mudras (hand postures) to help heal many physical ailments and mental and emotional issues
- Learn about using mantra in meditation and prayer
- Explore Naam Yoga – vibrating sounds that stimulate our brains to achieve higher consciousness and activate all the systems in the body

The Sunday workshop will be for teacher training registrants. We will explore being a teacher and learn about teaching prenatal yoga classes!
All are welcome to take the Friday/Saturday workshop on chakras, mudras, mantra and Naam with Siddhi. No experience is necessary!

Note from Katrina: I was thrilled to meet Siddhi and attend one of her workshops at a yoga teacher's conference in California last year. She's a wonderful teacher and yogi and I'm thrilled that she's coming to Goderich from California to share her wisdom and beautiful light!!
