This mudra flow invites you to stop and feel your inner potency!
Practice in seated meditation position and begin each mudra with 5-10 natural breaths (increasing the number of breaths weekly if desired and it feels good). Repeat the statements aloud, then silently to feel the inner experience of the qualities of each mudra.

Dhyana actually means meditation and is one of the 8-Limbs of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. Practicing this mudra allows all aspects of your being to come into harmony which creates an effortless field for mind to easily meditate. Left hand is underneath the Right. No cautions.

Uttarabodhi Mudra: Emotional Strength

No cautions.
