The Hand Mudra

in Apr 16, 2024

Hi Everyone!

Have you ever wondered why Yogamasti‘s logo is a Hand Mudra? It’s pretty nifty, actually…Read on through!

In fact, this powerful set of gestures originate from Hinduism and Buddhism, where it is believed that there are five elements in the Universe: Earth, Fire, Air, Water, and Aether. For those who don’t know, Aether, also spelt Ether, is a classical element that fills the region between the Earth and the Universe.

Performing these mudras can be so beneficial to you and your body, it is a powerful instrument. There is no need to devote masses amount of your time or be placed in a specific way: you can stand, sit, walk, talk…and still perform a hand mudra.

Our hands are very distinguished, and there’s a lot to learn about how our body is connected to absolutely everything in the Universe. Take a look at this hand chart:

In the mean time, enjoy your meditations & practice your hand mudras!
