Uncovering Yoga Mudras

Author : Soleranz Decosta

Mudras are actually particular signs or positions of the fingers of the hand, applied to yoga. It can be said that a specific form of electromagnetic power from our bodies is released through our hands and fingers. It truly is this energy which is used by experts in Touch Therapy and Accupressure, to take heal numerous ailments.

There is also the perception that the five fundamental substances which make up our bodies (earth, water, fire, air and space) are depicted by means of the five fingers on each hand. The historical rishis believed that by touching our hands or folding fingers using a specified fashion, or pressing certain points on the palms, people could actually emit the therapeutic powers of our system.

• Mudras can be undertaken by everyone.
• Absolutely no stringent rules of posture are required for undertaking mudras. You can accomplish it while walking, or even while enjoying television.
• Mudras are practiced with both hands. Right-handed mudras have an effect on the left side of our body and vice versa.
• Make a start by practising mudras for 10-15 minutes each morning and evening daily.
