Mudra to energise the brain


Earlier this week we practiced a sequence to nourish the brain which, although only 2% of the body's weight consumes 20% of the oxygen and glucose, 'Yoga for the brain-Part 2-Nourishing the brain'-http://flexiladies.blogspot.co.uk/2017/02/yoga-for-brain-part-2-nourishing-brain.html

Pran mudra directs prana, the life force to the parts of the body where it is needed. Since the brain is the body's big energy user, this mudra will help direct the energy it needs to it. 

To practice Pran mudra bring the thumb, little finger and ring finger tips together. Sit with your eyes closed or lowered and hold the mudra for several minutes.
