Yogiños: Yoga for Youth®: Mudras (gestures or positions)
Yoga Class Description
Ahila Gulasekaram, Yogiños: Yoga for Youth®, Dallas, TX - Mudras, specifically Hasta Mudras (Hasta is Sanskrit for hand) are widely used in both yoga and Indian Classical dance. There is a tremendous flow of energy in our hands and each finger is said to represent one of the five elements. The thumb is agni (fire), the index finger is vayu (air), the middle finger is akash (ether), the ring finger is prithvi (earth), and the little finger is jall (water). By curling, crossing, stretching, and touching the fingers and hands, we can lock or guide the energy flow to certain parts of the mind or body. Hasta Mudras are also found in Hundu and Buddhist works of art. In this free yoga video, we explore some of the Hasta Mudras that are associated with the Hindu deity Vishnu and his beautiful consort Lakshmi.
