Pran Mudra

Mudras are specific gestures that help to regulate the passage of pran through the body. Today on Yogi Thursday, let us talk about Pran Mudra. It is one of the most important mudra because it helps to activate the dormant energy in the body.

Pran or Prana mudra stimulates the root chakra, which creates vibration and heat, that awakens and energises the body. It is also known as Kapha Kaarak Mudra or Pita Nashak Mudra as it is beneficial to increase kapha humor and decrease pita humor.

  1. What about those who are in combination of Kapha, waat & pitta together…..i think there is a lot of this combination as well. However this knowledge imparted to us is adequate for routing energy to our bodies & is efficacious in sending our brain the messages to reap all kinds of benefits. Thus it’s a master mudra in some way.

    • Yes, there is a mudra called Saman Mudra, which is very useful to balance all the three doshas vata, pita and kapha. Due its impact on the doshas, it is also called tri-dosha-nasak mudra…
      Also Surabhi Mudra is useful…
      We will discuss them in due course.
      Thanks for showing another avenue…
