Learn about yogic mudra

Learn about yogic mudra

The Sanskrit word “Mudra” can be defined as “psychic, emotional, devotional, and aesthetic gestures”. Mudra can also be defined as a “seal”, “short-cut”, or “circuit by-pass”. Each Mudra has a specific purpose in the body. A Mudra may involve the whole body or be a simple hand gesture. It facilitates the flow of energy in the body. Mudras can be practiced with yogic breathing practices or meditation. They can alter mood, attitude, and perception and deepen awareness and concentration.

Our fingers have five elements in them as follows:

  1. Thumb – Fire
  2. Index finger – Air
  3. Middle finger – Spac
  4. Ring finger – Earth
  5. Little finger – Water

Let’s learn some Yogic Mudras that will harness the power of these five elements and help us improve our life.

Mudra – The Psychic Gesture of Knowledge

Jnana Mudra helps you concentrate and improves your memory. This Mudra also helps to cure insomnia and increases energy and stamina.

How to practice this Mudra:

  • Sit in a comfortable position.
  • Curl the index fingers of both hands so that they touch the base of the thumb. The other three fingers should be open and relaxed.
  • Place your hands on the knees with palms facing downward.

Yoni Mudra – The Attitude of the Womb or the Source

Yoni mudra helps to reduce unnecessary chatter in the mind. It immensely aids in making you more attentive and being present in the moment.

How to practice:

  • Sit in a comfortable position. 
  • Place both your palms together with the fingers and thumbs straight and pointing away from the body. 
  • Keeping the tips of the index fingers together, turn the little, ring, and middle fingers inwards so that the sides of the fingers are touching. Interlock the little, ring and middle fingers. 
  • Bring the thumbs towards the body and join the tips of the fingers together to form the base of a yoni.
