Yoga Mudras Series: 9. Ganesha Mudra

In Hindu mythology, Ganesha is a popular deity, the remover of obstacles. Ganesha Mudra aims to induce a feeling of strength and determination to tackle one's problems.


HOW TO: In a seated, standing or lying down position, bring the right hand palm facing up and then the left hand, palm facing down over the right.


Bend the fingers of both hands and hook them together.
Hold the hands at waist level if standing or lying down or on your lap if sitting down.



BENEFITS: Ganesha Mudra invites the confidence and courage to face and remove problems.



DID YOU KNOW: Hooking all fingers together represents the joining of all elements to create a sense of courage and determination.
