Mudras to help reduce stress

Earlier this week we talked about the detrimental effects stress has on the brain.  Please see 'Yoga for the brain-Part 1-Stress'

Mudras are hand gestures that act as energy locks that can cause subtle changes in your body and mind.  Try the following mudras to help reduce stress in your life.

Tse mudra  - to do Tse mudra fold your thumb into your palm and then fold your fingers over your thumb.  Hold for a few minutes with your eyes closed or lowered.


This mudra is good to practice if stress is a result of feelings of fear or failure.  Other benefits - it increases alertness and intuition.


Hakini mudra - to do Hakini mudra join the fingertips together. Hold for a few minutes with your eyes closed or lowered.



This mudra calms the mind so that you can think more clearly and make more considered responses to challenging situations.

Namaste,
