Indu Arora - Mudras in Yoga Workshop - July 13th - 15th

TYI is excited to welcome Indu Arora as she presents her workshop, Mudras in Yoga, July 13th - 15th.

Mudra is the ancient yogic art and science of gesturing and sealing vital pranic energies in the human body for heath, well-being, and spiritual evolution.  It also works as a therapy for the body and mind by balancing the ratio of five elements when done with hands.  The joining of fingers create a special effect on the human body.  When a finger representing an element is brought into contact with the thumb, that element is brought into balance.  Mudras can help prevent and bring a healing effect, help boost the immunity, balance the metabolism, and strengthen the nervous system.

Indu Arora is a Yoga Teacher, Ayurvedic Clinician, Yoga Therapist, and author with more than 14 years of teaching experience.  Her teachings are deeply rooted in her philosophy: 'Nothing has the greatest power to heal, but Self.'  Indu is the author of Mudra:  The Sacred Secret and Yoga published by Ancient Heritage, Tomorrow's Vision books.  She is excited about her visit to TYI to share with us the world of Mudras and how they can help promote harmony and health!  Visit her website at:
