|Healing Yoga Mudras -- Private Classes
Yoga Mudra is generally known as Yoga for the hands and the
Mudras are best described as hand positions. Hand gestures and
positions are a part of everyday lives, intuitively used throughout
the day, and intricately affecting our energy level.
Through learning about the Mudras and their applications, we can
appreciate how each area of the hand has a reflex reaction in a
specific part of the brain. A Mudra locks and guides energy flow and
reflexes to the brain, and Mudras can be performed at any time in
any way, like sitting, standing, or walking.
During your Yoga Mudra Class, you can explore this healing art
while the hand positions are modified to comfort level. Not only
does this allow for you to experience the powerful healing
applications of the Mudras but it also encourages hand and finger
flexibility through gentle and consistent practice.
Yoga Mudra sessions require focus and present an opportunity to
explore a highly disciplined way of inner work. Yoga Mudra classes
offer a most exquisite and different way of embracing yoga and
healing. This type of class is truly unique and one of a kind!

I came to Gabriela over a year
ago with severe Arthritis and
Fibromyalgia pain. I've
progressed from reflexology
to massage and am now doing
my second chair yoga
I have to admit I was pretty
skeptical that chair
yoga would be challenging or
I'm completely amazed that I
make progress every week.
My mobility has increased and
I've gone from not being
able to raise my arms above
my shoulders to being able to
do a warrior pose. I get better
each week, the change is not
subtle it's visible. The best
thing about chair yoga is
literally anyone can do it no
matter what your mobility
level is. And Gabriela is a
caring and gentle coach.
I highly recommend chair
yoga for anyone.
-Bonny Ross, Comox
I enjoy taking the chair yoga
classes with Gabriela at
Womyn’s Path of
Healing. Gabriela gears each
class towards my own
I learn the correct breathing,
balance, meditation and
stretches, all while
either sitting on or standing
next to a chair. At the end of
the class I feel
relaxed yet energized and
ready for the day ahead. I do
not have the room at home to
do the conventional yoga and
I find chair yoga targets all the
same muscles while using
less space. Definitely a form
of exercise anyone
can do – from the physically
fit to someone with limited
to illness or age. I Love it!

Yoga practise ties together meditation and breathing exercises and serves
as yet another tool on the stress management journey as it greatly benefits body, mind and spirit.
Specifically, research shows that yoga may be beneficial in managing anxiety, chronic fatigue, depression, stress and
many other conditions. Yoga exercises do not have to be complex and strenuous to be effective.
There is no "one fits all" approach as there are many different styles of Yoga and it is well
worth exploring the choices.
Yoga and meditation are wonderful and effective tools toward a deeper understanding
of one’s health and well-being on all levels: emotional, physical, and spiritual. These practises
encourage a sense of self-worth and they also call for self-responsibility. Ultimately, these stress
management tools are incredibly self-empowering because they allow us to manage and control
different emotional states in healthy ways – as opposed to destructive and self-sabotaging ways.
Most importantly, they encourage the process of transformation; a process that must start from within.
