Shanti Mudra (Gesture of Peace)

October 23, 2007

The heart-opening Shanti mudra is poetic in its appeal. Raising the arms progressively up the body’s midline, eventually opening them in a remarkable heart-expanding gesture above, the Shanti mudra creates an evocative state of ‘being-at-peace’.

A key to success in practicing the Shanti mudra is your focus on the spine. In the movement, you focus on each of the chakras in turn, so try to progressively lengthen your spine each time you move your arms upwards. Breathe deeply and fully, and enjoy the sensation of immense confidence and strength the open arms can bring you at the top of the movement!

The Shanti Mudra can be found on the Total Health CD by Louise Rowan, along with Dru Yoga’s unique Energy Block Release 2 sequence. It is also on the DVD: Dru Yoga – Techniques for Men, presented by John Jones and Mansukh Patel. If you like it in print format, check out p144 of Crisis and the Miracle of Love, Mansukh Patel and Helena Waters.

Energy Block Release 2 (EBR 2)

October 22, 2007

Energy Block Release 2 helps you quickly re-align and revitalise your body, leaving your feeling free of aches and pains, relaxed and yet re-energised and ready for anything. It also works to create a feeling of deep peacefulness up and down your spine, leaving your mind refreshed and clear.

Dru Yoga’s unique Energy Block Release (EBR) sequences are important tools for de-stressing, re-energising and revitalising your body. They start with EBRs 1 and 2 which work to rebalance your physical body and its energy system. After that, the successive EBR sequences gradually progress through strengthening and balancing your emotional system and the realm of your beliefs, values and unconscious thoughts.

EBR 2 is a great sequence to use in the morning before important meetings, or to clear the lethargy you feel after travel. And it’s fabulous for a quick de-stress or for clearing the effects of the night before!

Louise Rowan’s CD, Total Health takes you gently through EBR 2, as does the Dru Yoga DVD, featuring Coby Langford and Mansukh Patel.
