In yoga practice, mudras are very important. The scriptures have described the importance of mudras as well. Mudras can be categorized as following:
1. Hand mudras that regulate the elements – Fire, Air, Space, Earth and Water.
2. Mudras that help in awakening the kundalini and elevating the prana.
Hand mudras, when done regularly and performed correctly, show great results. They bring relief to a variety of ailments – from digestive to respiratory to cardiac issues.
