Mudras: Yoga with your hands

Mudras: Yoga with your hands

When you are waiting for something, it can often become a point of tension.

Did you know there are over 1,000 mudras you can practice with your hands, whether you are in a traffic jam, at the doctors, or waiting to collect your children from school, and that each has a distinct energetic effect on the body and mind?

The Hakini mudra can be called upon when you are struggling to remember a word, or perhaps what it was you came downstairs for! Or it can be used when you need an instant rebalance!

To practice Hakini Mudra, bring the pads at the top of each finger or thumb together with their counterparts on the opposite hand and press gently together. Relax the shoulders and elbows, and take a deep breath in and out. Stay in the mudra for as long as you like, or as long as time allows. Even practicing this mudra for a few seconds can reap enormous benefits.

You can also teach this mudra to children!

Please write and tell me what you discover using Hakini mudra: Mudras are magical and I would love to hear your stories!
