Getting Handsy With Your Second Mudra
Last week, we introduced you to the Indian tradition of mudras - hands gestures used to strengthen and cleanse the body and mind and commonly used in yoga and meditation practice.
Yoga Mudras Series: 2. Kshepana Mudra
Kshepana Mudra is often used in postures such as standing side stretches, or low lunge (Anjaneyasana). Kshepana Mudra translates as the ‘gesture of letting go’.
HOW TO: Bring the palms to touch and interlace the fingers. Then release the index fingers and point them up.
You may be sitting or standing, hands may be in front of the heart centre, or arms extended above the head.
