Hridaya Heart Mudra

“I am Loved.”

‘Hridaya’ is the Spiritual Heart, and according to yoga, is known to be the root of the higher mind and feelings. Touching and connecting with your Heart can feel comforting, nourishing, and bring deeper truths to light, such as ‘the Divine is always here, no matter how difficult things may be or feel’. This ancient, wise Heart is your truth-teller and brings one into authenticity with all of life’s ups and downs.

Right hand rests on the sternum at the center of the chest; Left hand rests on right hand.

Hridaya mudra helps direct energy upward to increase the health of the immune system, heart and lungs, allowing breathing to be lighter and more efficient.

  • Offers support and consolation with challenging times and feelings
  • Can release tension from the chest to create fuller breath
  • Allows greater trust and emotional balance to develop
  • Calls in the Higher Wisdom within one’s Ancient Heart

Begin with 5-10 natural breaths and increase the number of breaths weekly to your practice.
