Avahana Mudra

Opening and Recieving

Place the edges of the little fingers together with the palms facing up in front of the solar plexus. Press the thumb gently into the base of the ring finger, other fingers remain together and extended.

This mudra helps expand breathing capacity and fills the body with prana. It is especially helpful for enhancing our ability for receiving, nurturing, connecting and centering.

Sit for 5-10 minutes, as long as you are comfortable and calm.
