Hand mudras stimulate different organs to help cleanse your system during yoga and meditation. I’ve recently become incredibly obsessed with the various hand mudras and always love to learn new ones. I find it fascinating because hand mudras are not only used in yoga but also in Hindu rituals and classical dances. I think it’s important to bring your awareness to hand mudras and begin to incorporate them in your own practice.
