What is Mudra?

Mudra

The origin of Mudra remains a mystery today. However, according to the Indian Medical Science of Ayurveda, different areas of the hand stimulate specific areas of the brain. By applying light pressure on these areas of the hand, you will activate the corresponding region of the brain. The subtle hand and finger movements make important connections in the nervous system and increase the life force throughout the body, hence providing mental, physical as well as spiritual benefits. The effects of a Mudra can be intensified with breathing exercises, visualizations and affirmations. When a mudra is done with clear concentration, cerebral activity is calmed and regenerated. In addition, many Mudras synchronize the right and left hemisphere of the brain. This promotes alertness and memory and clarity of mind.

Mudras can be done while seated, lying down or even standing. Ensure that your body posture is symmetrical and centered. Relax your hands when performing the Mudra. Take slow deep breathes. Hold the Mudra for at least 5 to 30 minutes. Complete your Mudra practice with a positive affirmation.

The following Mudras are primarily used to support the healing or relief of physical complaints. Combined with visualization and affirmations, they also influence our minds and emotional state of mind.
