Prana Mudra

Prana Mudra –  Invocation of energy

The concept of prana or vitality is one that is intrinsic to Eastern cultures. It is referred to by many different names, for example, Chi or Qui.

Mudras are specific hand gestures that help in regulating the passage of prana through the body. Prana mudra is one of the most important postures as it helps to activate dormant energy in the body.

Prana is the symbol of vital life force which is responsible for maintaining a natural balance in the body. This mudra works to activate this vital life force. It is related to the heart and soul of a person.
