My name is Aricia.

SAVY YOGIBadha Parsvokonasana

I’m a 23 year old west coaster (from Victoria BC).

I have been practicing yoga on and off from about the age of 8.

Growing up, I saw Yoga as a big part of my mother’s life.

DSC_0017aGarudasana

I faded in and out of my own personal practice.

DSC_0021aVeerbhadrasana I

Approximately two years ago I found a new appreciation for yoga while searching for anything that would help my anxiety and to help me with the stresses of everyday life.

DSC_0026aUtthitta Parsvokonasana

I was searching for something to calm my mind and heal myself with. I found it in yoga.

DSC_0030aParivratta Trikonasana

I usually practice moderately active flow style yoga, but have experimented with hatha, hot yoga, bikram, ashtanga, kundalini and other styles.

DSC_0040aPaschimottanasana

After almost two years of practicing (almost) every day, I decided it was time to take my practice to a new level, and begin to share yoga with those around me so that I can help others find what I found in yoga.

DSC_0042aParivratta Janushirasana

DSC_0055aParipurna Navasana

I flew across the country, in February, to a bitterly cold and snowy London, to attend SAVY international’s two-week yoga teacher training program to become a registered yoga teacher.

DSC_0064aUshtrasana

The training was fascinating, all-encompassing and in depth.

DSC_0068aParighasana

DSC_0078aSalamba Sarvangsamasana

The instruction was very encouraging, and really helped me to understand physical postures and find confidence in poses that I never thought I would progress in.

DSC_0080aKarnapeedasana

During my training I grew to appreciate the depth of yoga, its history and philosophy.

A note from the President’s desk

Dr Jitender K Sahdev

Dr Jitender K Sahdev

 March, the month which marks the beginning of spring, is here! The March equinox on the 20th or 21st marks the astronomical beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere and the beginning of autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. The name of March comes from Latin Martius, the first month of the earliest Roman calendar. It was named for Mars, the Roman god of war who was also regarded as a guardian of agriculture and an ancestor of the Roman people through his sons Romulus and Remus. His month Martius was the beginning of the season for both farming and warfare. 

In this now very popular Featured SAVY Yogi of the Month series, we present SAVY Yogis who have been learning the right kind of true, traditional yoga with correct techniques, have done wonderfully well for themselves and are a guiding light and a source of great inspiration for others.

In this month marking the onset of spring, it’s my pleasure to introduce Aricia Haywood, our new savvy SAVY Yogi  for the month of March. She completed her RYT 200 Yoga Teacher Training with me in February, 2015 and is a Yoga Alliance, USA registered Yoga Teacher now. She’ll be completing her DSBH Breathing Educator (DBE-I) training soon. A dedicated and devoted Yogi to the hilt with the freshness of a blossoming spring flower, a bold explorer who loves to meet challenges head on, she is blessed with a compassionate heart, a strong, sinewy, lithe, sculpted and flexible yoga body and a steely grit. She braved the merciless freezing cold and dipping temperatures to come and join us here at SAVY for Registered Yoga Teacher Training and ruffled the brutal February cold weather in London with the whiff of freshness and warmth of spring air all the way down from Victoria, BC! Always up to the demands of the rigorous, intensive training and the ruthless 16-hour routine for two weeks straight she chose to join us for, she seemed to thoroughly enjoy every moment of her encounter with the intense challenges and met each one of them head on! Her attitude, devotion and professionalism made the extreme weather conditions look like nothing more than a mere minor inconvenience. She had done traditional yoga before and enjoyed her re-encounter and rediscovery of authentic traditional yoga at SAVY Studio. She showed a very keen interest in learning new yoga poses. She is an avid learner of her new-found passion of Yogic breathing exercises and newer meditation techniques, and what they can do for her. Day in and day out, she worked her way through the routines with great dedication. She has a keen sense of inquiry, is quick to learn, came out with flying colors in the training, and is bound to do great for herself. She is certainly going to be a source of enormous inspiration for her future students.

All the best, Aricia! Keep it up.

Hand Postures

Yoga Science of Hand Gestures – Hasta Mudra Vigyan

Hand PosturesMudra‘ means a seal! In Yoga, one can make mudras with hands, eyes, whole body etc. All these mudras work in harmony with other healing methods and, done regularly, can have wonderful healing effects. Therapy with mudras offers very effective results. It works through the energy system of the body – nadis, chakras, marmas. Hasta Mudras are the gestures made with hands.

 

Our hands gestures express our inner feelings and deeper consciousness.We see mudra used, though in a crude form of common hand gestures, every day: we make an ‘o’ when things are OK, or give a ‘thumbs up’ sign, and we express peace by raising the index and middle fingers, which can express the opposite if the hand is reversed! This is one of the greatest secrets in yoga, right at the tips of your fingers! You can take your yoga practice and even your health to a completely new level by touching your finger-tips in some particular way. These particular finger positions are called ‘hasta mudras’, or hand gestures, or energy seals.

Hasta Mudras or hand  gestures allow you to direct the developed awareness of the vital energy (prana) within your body. By using mudras in your yoga and meditation practice, you can facilitate healing, balance your energy levels, focus your mind, and deepen your meditation. Holding a mudra, or hand position, during an asana practice brings a powerful and profound steadiness and focus to your practice. You can even control your breath through mudras. Mudras can generate a strong psychic effect upon the inner being and facilitate spiritual advancement.

The hand and finger positions of mudras or hand gestures make important connections in the nervous system and stimulate specific energy pathways (nadis). It is also said that mudras increase energy and blood circulation to different parts of the brain, to important nerve junctions and glands.

Early yogis mapped out the hand areas and their associated reflexes which relate to the different areas of the body and brain. These areas of the hands and fingers also affect emotions and behaviors. By curling, stretching, crossing and touching fingers to other fingers and areas of the hand we can effectively communicate with the body and mind.

Certain mudras in yoga control the involuntary physiological processes and the breathing. Mudras accomplish this by uniting various marma points in the fingers that in turn activate different areas of the brain as well as the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.

One example is when you join your hands together palm-to-palm in Namaste or Anjali mudra; this brings marmas together and nerve circuits in the head and the upper part of the body in the vagus nerve system are united together. This produces a physiological response that induces calmness and a deeper breath.

Your hands are essentially an energy map of consciousness. Each finger has a quality that it represents and stimulates. In traditional yoga,

  • the little finger represents tamas (inertia)
  • the fourth or ring finger represents rajas (activity, action, passion);
  • the middle finger represents satva (purity, peace)
  • the index finger represents the atma or individual soul; and
  • the thumb represents the Parmatama or Supreme soul.

The fingers also affect the elements of the body, the chakras, the major organs, and even planetary energies.

Perhaps the most basic mudra in yoga is accomplished by touching the thumb and the index finger together to form Gyan Mudra, or the seal of wisdom. You can also say that this mudra symbolizes the union of the individual soul (index finger) with the Supreme soul (thumb).

There are hundreds of mudras in yoga, yet mudras are rarely taught extensively in yoga classes. You can facilitate healing, expand your consciousness, relax your mind, and improve psychological conditions by simply touching your fingers and hands together. Mudras are easy to perform at any time, although sitting in the lotus position and focusing on the healing is desirable. Although mudras can be used for healing certain ailments, regular practise of mudras will contribute to your overall good health and can be used as a preventive measure. Continuous practice of the mudras will produce changes in your body using pulse centres on parts of your hands, which trigger certain healing processes.

Mudras are performed with both hands at the same time, unless otherwise specified. ingers should remain comfortable during the procedure and not held stiffly or tight.

The science of Mudra Vigyan is amazing. Mudras can be quite effective in some illnesses like: Shunya Mudra for ear ache, Apan Mudra for urinary infections, Mritsanjiveni Mudra for heart attack are some of the examples.

Basis

Our body is composed of five elements – earth, water, air, fire and ether (space). These five elements also form cosmos. These five elements have assigned functions in our body to keep it healthy. After intensive research, Indian sages found that Hastamudras (hand gestures) are very important, for keeping a balance in the energy the flow among the five elements. All five fingers regulate the five elements of body.

 Hasta mudras

These are as follows–

(a) Thumb – Fire element

(b) Index finger – Air element

(c) Middle finger – Space or ether element

(d) Ring finger – Earth element

(e) Little finger – Water element

Fingers in Vedic Astrology

According to Vedic Astrology, the Jupiter (index) finger, when long, indicates a love of power and command over others; when short, it denotes a dislike of responsibility and lack of ambition.

The Saturn (middle) finger, when long, indicates prudence, love of solitude and a reserved, studious disposition; when short, it denotes frivolousness and a general lack of seriousness in all things.

The Sun (ring) finger, when long, indicates a love of the beautiful, a desire for celebrity status and fame; when excessively long, the tendency towards notoriety, speculative risk-taking, the love of money and gambling; when short, it denotes a dislike for all these things.

The Mercury (little) finger, when long, indicates mental power, a grasp of languages, and the power of expression, especially in speech; when short, it denotes difficulty in speaking and expression of thoughts; when crooked, with an irregular Head Line, it denotes a handicapped mentality.

Hasta mudras are helpful in maintaining good health and getting relief from diseases. Joining the tips of the fingers or pressing by thumb, regulate and balance respective elements in the body. Its daily practice can keep oneself healthy for life. It has tremendous healing power and if practiced properly, even major diseases can be cured. It also offers happiness and spiritual attainments.

How to perform hand mudras

Mudras in general are actions of hands and fingers that can be performed at any time in any way, like sitting, standing, walking or travelling though maximum benefit can be derived by doing them in sitting posture: especially in sukhasana (easy pose), vajrasana, or padmasana. If you have time constraints, you can even perform them in installments.

Timing and duration for mudras

Initially, mudras should be performed for at least 10 minutes and then can be extended to 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Here are some guidelines for performing Mudras:

  1. Balance, Decrease, Increase :
    • Touching the Tip of the Finger and Thumb Balances the Element represented by the Finger.
    • Touching the Finger Tip at the base of the Thumb Decreases the Element.
    • Touching the Thumb Tip to the base of the Finger Increases the Element.
  2. A light contact between the tips of the thumb and the fingers is sufficient, you need not apply pressure.
  3. Fingers not actively involved in the Mudra should be straight.
  4. Whenever possible, perform the Mudra with both hands. Mudra can be performed with one hand when there is problem on opposite side.
  5. Mudras can be Practised anytime, anywhere.
  6. Mudras can be performed by anybody, facing any Direction. Mudras are universal.
  7. Chanting of Mantras [eg: Aum, Gayatri, Om Namah Shivaya] with Mudras gives better results.
  8. Suitable dietary advice can reinforce the benefits of Mudras.
  9. For therapy, the specific Mudras are to be practised for 50 minutes, followed by Prana Mudra.
  10. Prana , Apana , Prithvi and Gyana Mudra can be practised for unlimted time . Other Mudras must be practised till the problem persists.

Surya Namaskar

Sun Salutations or Surya Namaskar – Yoga Fundamentals Series

SAVY Yoga has been serving the city of London and surrounding areas since 2011. To serve the people London in a better way, instead of serving some run-of-the-mill pseudo-yoga routines, we offer some very useful, true Yoga/ Pranayama routines, ranging from gentle to very challenging routines, for a beginner to an advanced student alike. Here, we bring to you a new series of classes on Yoga Fundamentals which introduce you and clarify to you the benefits of authentic traditional ashtanga Yoga.

Through demonstration, discussion and experiential movement, you will gain key understanding of proper posture and how to keep your body safe. As common sense dictates, one can function properly only if one is disease-free and is in a healthy state of body, mind and spirit. So, for us, your health and disease-free state comes first of all. We firmly believe Yoga is much beyond mere gymnastics and sauna!

London Yoga Classes at SAVY bring you the taste, values and expertise of the true traditional Ashtanga and Vinyasa Yoga from India. Inspired adherence to eight pillars or steps of yoga bestow one with a calm mind and fit body and lead one towards attaining moksha or liberation for an emancipated life. In more physical or materialistic  terms, Yoga is more than capable of keeping one physically and mentally fit and disease-free. It has become the new hot and favored way to sweat it out. Yoga Fundamentals is a step in that direction.

Sun Salutations or Surya Namaskar

Sun Salutations The Sun is the source of all energy and the supporter of all life-forms. In India, it is more than just a star and Indian culture respects and worships this powerful source of energy as a deity. Surya Namaskar or Sun Salutations, an integral part of Surya Yoga, is one way Hindus have always paid respect to the “Sun god” and in turn gain enormous health benefits. Surya Namaskar, also known in English as Sun Salutation is a well-known sequence of twelve asanas. The obvious characteristic of Surya Namaskar is the fact that it exercises the entire body. The Sun Salutation is a graceful sequence of twelve postures performed as one continuous exercise. Each position is reverse of the one before, stretching the body in a different way and alternatively expanding and contracting the chest to regulate the breathing. Sun Salutations or Surya Namaskar is yoga postures, breathing, mindfulness, meditation, bandhas, gaze, alignment etc – all rolled in one! It’s considered THE MOST COMPLETE EXERCISE ROUTINE! Sun Salutations or  Surya Namaskar has many benefits and if done regularly can not only help you lose flab but can also help you combat diseases. Here are a few benefits of this asana.

  • Surya Namaskar, or Sun Salutations, ideally done facing the early morning rising sun, helps our body to soak in the benefits of the rays of the sun.
  • This is the best and most complete series of asanas to improve lymphatic circulation and drainage. Hence, it improves body immunity.
  • Regular practice of this series of asanas can also help you lose the excess belly fat.
  • The postures in Surya Namaskar stretch our muscles and help make our body very flexible.
  • The moves and postures of the asana help all our internal organs function better — the various poses regulate our blood flow, benefit the digestive system and makes it more efficient.
  • It helps combat insomnia as it relaxes the body and calms the mind.
  • It helps regulate menstrual cycles and makes childbirth easier.
  • This is known to facilitate blood circulation and thereby help hair growth and prevent hair problems.
  • It reduces anxiety and restlessness and enhances our strength and vitality.
  • Surya Namaskar benefits not just adults, but kids as well.
  • From yoga point of view, it acts on Solar Plexus and regular practice of Surya Namaskar increases its size, hence increasing awareness and ‘gut feeling’ or intuition.
  • It acts on and balances all chakras and helps you achieve complete health.
  • The back and forth, up and down movements in Sun Salutations are fun and offer the opportunity to move playfully in the practice.
  • They warm up the body for the practice of more asanas.
  • Surya Namaskar improves cardiovascular function. Some studies have revealed that sun salutations provided the best overall benefit for the heart, specifically the left ventricle. For excellence of health, the left ventricle must relax very rapidly after each contraction and then again contract rapidly and forcibly, to push blood into aorta. Sun Salutations improve this function.
  • They bring the mind to a calm, serene yogic state.
  • They help to overcome motivation issues.
  • Sun Salutation is a very complete exercise.  If you only have fifteen or twenty minutes to practice, doing Sun Salutations alone properly cover almost all the benefits of yoga postures.
  • They keep your skills sharp.

The traditional format of Sun Salutations being taught at SAVY Studios helps you derive maximum benefits from this very useful yogic exercise. One feels so alive after just a few rounds of this!
