Heart Mudra/Anahata Mudra…

Image

Mudras are easy to perform at anytime.
 
Although Mudras can be used for healing certain ailments, regular practice of Mudras will contribute to your overall good health and can be used as a preventive measure. Continuous practice of the Mudras will create minute changes in your body using pulse centers on parts of your hands, which trigger certain healing processes within the corresponding body part. Mudras are to be performed with both hands at the same time, unless otherwise specified.
Fingers should remain comfortable during the procedure and not held stiffly or tight.
 
The image above is the Anahata/Heart Mudra. By using the hand Mudra and the bija sound “YAM” for this hand position we are choosing to harmonize with our heart via sound, movement, breath and intention. When we focus on connection with our heart we begin to live from the place of inner fire within each of us. A heart centered practice will bring you to new levels of awareness about yourself and those around you.
Remember, you do not have to do Yoga to practice this Mudra or any others. During this month we are going to explore more “hand Yoga” as well as heart centered practices.
See you on the mat!
