Mudras are used mostly in meditation, to direct the flow of energy within the body by using only hands.
Yogis claim there are different areas of our hands are connected with different areas of our body and brain. So, by doing these moves we can stimulate different areas of the brain and create energy for the entire body.
In this way, we can consider the hands to be a mirror for our body and our mind.” ~ Lothar Rüdiger Lütge, Kundalini yoga expert
Mudras are called “producers of joy” because they can give you the perfect harmony and peace you need. They are very easy to do and don’t need any equipment except a relaxing place.
We will show you how to do the mudras:
1.Gyan Mudra (Mudra of Knowledge)
This is the most used mudra in yoga. Sit on the floor in a lotus position. Bring the tips of the thumb and index finger together and place your hand on the knees with your palms upwards. Keep the other three fingers together and stretched.
This mudra relaxes your mind, increases concentration and creativity, treats insomnia, reduces depression and manages stress.
