Mudry. They are part of yoga, but how much do you really know about them? Especially if you start with yoga, you may not immediately know when and which mudra to use. Which when and how it affects our body and mind.
Mudra in Sanskrit means "seal". These gestures are mostly used during meditation or to control the flow of energy in the body. Different areas of the hands and fingers are associated with different areas of the body and brain. So by putting your hands in a certain mudra, you can stimulate a certain area of our body by creating a specific energy circuit. So this flowing energy can help us support or even create a specific state of mind.
Mudras - five elements
The universe is made up of five elements, and each of the five fingers is represented by one of these elements.
- The thumb represents both fire and universal consciousness
- The index finger represents air and individual consciousness
- The middle finger represents akashu, or connection
- The ring represents the earth
- Pinky water
If these 5 elements are not in balance, we may feel pain, illness or other signals from our body. Mudras are one way to contribute to the balance between 5 elements, between our body and spirit. Let's imagine the 5 muder.
