Dvimukham Mudra

EARTH ELEMENT: Activates and increases Earth Element qualities such as relaxation, serenity, grounding, steadiness, focus, mindfulness and the ability to sleep!

Dvimukham Mudra is one of the most calming of all mudras. It increases the downward flow of energy and breath in your body that brings you into a state of peace by helping to lower the blood pressure and stress levels.

Hold your hands facing upward like you are holding a large salad bowl, in your lap or in front of your belly, for 5-10 natural breaths. State the affirmation three times out loud, then silently.

“As waves of relaxation flow through me, I am calmed.”


  • Deeply relaxing
  • Especially good for insomnia, lowering blood pressure, toning vagus nerve
  • Cultivates serenity helping to reduce anxiety and fear
  • Supports health of reproductive, urinary and eliminatory systems
  • Naturally lengthens exhalation bringing you into Relaxation Response


Caution: low blood pressure practice with caution.
