A cornerstone of breath-centered yoga in the tradition of Krishnamacharya, the practice of Mahamudra, is considered to be a bridge between Asana and Pranayama. In addition to the seated practice that bears its name, the principle of Mahamudra is invoked whenever strong axial extension of the spine is accomplished through the action of the bandhas.

This series of sessions will combine simple asana and seated practices related to Mahamudra in an interactive teaching environment. An accompanying inquiry will examine the anatomical and physiological basis for the experience of sushumna, kundalini and related meditative experiences.
