Murti means body, form, in Sanskrit, and allows the breath to settle into the pelvis to support balance, stability, and comfort within the body and mind. Grounding, rooting and feeling your connection to the Earth helps to support feeling present and embodied. The exhalation will be enhanced leading to greater relaxation and softening within the body. This is a great antidote for a busy mind and overactive energy output.
Hands are placed in Murti Mudra resting in the lap. Begin with 5-10 natural breaths and increase the number of breaths weekly to your practice.
