Did you know that your body functions can be controlled by the use of simple hand gestures?
Mudras ‘meaning posture in Sanskrit’ are hand gestures made to form a closed communication circuit between physical and etheric body elements. Mudras form a significant element of yoga and meditation, as by exerting pressures on figure tips or hands, we can communicate with different parts of mind and body. Mudras can be classified into five groups:
Hasta (hand mudras)- Create a loop of energy between brain and hand
Mana (head mudras)- Includes the use of eyes, ears, nose, tongue and lips
Kaya (postural mudras)- Includes physical postures, breathing and concentration
Bandha (lock mudras)- Combining mudra with bandha (locks) to let Prana (life) flow
Adhara (perineal mudras)- Involve the redirecting of Prana from the lower centres of the brain.
Practising each mudra with Asanas (yoga postures) or with Pranayama (breathing exercises) for almost 15 minutes can bring very effective mind and body transformation.
