How to yoga mudras work? For more information, please visit: http://unlimitedenergynow.com/how-do-yoga-mudras-work/ Based on my 21 years of teaching and practicing yoga, here is my best explanation: Yoga mudras alter the flow of energy through your acupuncture system. All your acupuncture meridians either begin or end in your hands or feet. When you change the position of your hands and fingers, you literally alter the prana in your body. You can think of this like rewiring the subtle currents. Your thumbs activate your lung meridian. Your pointer fingers activate your large intestine meridian. Your middle fingers activate your circulation sex meridian. Your ring fingers activate your triple warmer meridian. Your little fingers activate both your heart and small intestine meridians. In addition to activating the acupuncture meridians, mudras balance the five elements of fire, air, ether or space, earth and water in your body. Your thumbs activate fire energy. Your pointer fingers activate air. Your middle fingers activate ether or space. Your ring fingers activate earth energy. Your little fingers activate water energy. When you hold your palms up, you call in more prana from the universe. When you turn your palms down, you allow yourself to focus on circulating your own prana. Your energy body, called your pranamayakosha in yoga, literally controls your physical body.
