Yoga Mudras: Anjali Mudra

Welcome to the first in our series of videos about the mudras (hand gestures) of yoga. This video introduces Anjali Mudra (aka prayer position / salutation seal).

Anjali: offering

Mudra: seal or sign

How to do it: Simply join your hands, palm to palm, in front of your chest, fingers pointing upwards.

Why practice this gesture? This mudra is calming & centering, it connects you to your heart and evokes feelings of humility, reverence and devotion.

When to practice: This mudra can be practiced at any time you need to take a moment to center yourself.

Begin your yoga asana practice in sukhasana (easy crossed leg pose) taking a moment to hold this mudra while setting an intention for your practice. Explore using the gesture during asana (poses) such as tadasana (mountain), vrksasana (tree) and utkatasana (chair). Experiment using it during any other poses in which you wish to feel centered. Each time you practice the gesture notice the feeling of calm it brings, and come back to the intention you set at the beginning of your practice.

Try practicing this mudra in your next meditation, rooting your thumbs down towards the base of your sternum and holding the gesture for the duration of your meditation.
