What is Yoga Mudra?


Mudra means “seal,” “gesture,” or “mark.” Yoga mudras are symbolic gestures often practiced with the hands and fingers. They facilitate the flow of energy in the subtle body and enhance one's journey within.

Yoga mudras are the symbolic hand, eyes & body gestures that are based on the principle of Ayurveda to heal and redirects energy in the different organs of the body.

Yoga Mudras, along with being a part of Yoga, are also a part of rituals in different traditions like Hinduism and Buddhism. Mudras in yoga are practices in conjunction with Pranayama and Meditation to redirects the flow of life-force (Prana).

The universe is made of five elements, and each of the five fingers is represented by one of these elements. The thumb represents the fire, as well as universal consciousness. The index finger represents air and individual consciousness.

The middle finger represents akasha or connection. The ring finger represents earth, and the little finger the element of water. When these five elements are not in balance, we can experience disease in the body. Mudras are one way of creating a balance between all of these elements within us. Read on and attune yourself with some of these common mudras.
