Jala Water Mudra


“I flow with the rhythms of the rivers within.”

This is one of my all time favorite Mudras! Perhaps because its so simple and yet so powerful at bringing me back into my natural flow. It helps me to sense my navel and breath naturally flowing more deeply and fully there.

My breath is a representation of the rhythms of nature inside me and in the Five Elements all around me that move together to bring me into harmony and balance. Then I remember that I AM nature and like a tuning fork to the macrocosm of nature, I am one again.

I have found in my Shiatsu practice that it can help to nourish the kidney energy channel, helping the body to deal with stress and adrenal overload to come back into harmony and health.

Hands are placed in Jala Mudra (little finger presses against the thumb) resting on the lap facing upward, or elbows at the waist hands also facing upward. Begin with 5-10 natural breaths and increase the number of breaths weekly to your practice.
