Prana Mudra

This mudra, Prana Mudra, is formed by bringing the tips of the little and ring finger to touch the tip of the thumb. The index and middle fingers are extended but not straining. The index and middle fingers separated slightly.

Sit in any comfortable position (even on a chair) and place both hands in this position with the hands resting on the knees or thighs for 10 – 15 minutes. If resting quitely in this position for 10 -15 minutes is a challenge, start with 5 minutes. If this causes any degree of agitation, reduce the amount of time.

There are many purposes for using prana mudra:

  • Assess the sensitivity of an individual to the movement of prana in the body.
  • Increase/stabilize the flow of prana throughout the body.
  • Promote physical wellbeing due to #2.
  • Provide a distinct experience of prana allowing the recognition of who or what is recognizing the ever-changing flow of prana.
