Matsya & Trimurti Nourishing Mudras

These two mudras help to balance WATER ELEMENT. They enhance circulation of energy-prana through the whole body, organs and joints as well as moisten, lubricate, and de-congest the joints. You may like to practice these mudras as a flow or individually. Hold for 5-10 natural breaths to start, increasing over time if you like. State the affirmations three times out loud, then silently.
