It's pretty common in a Yoga class that at some point, you bring your hand into certain Hand Mudras such as Chin Mudra(thumbs and first fingers joined) or Anjali Mudra (prayer position). Hand Mudras are used during Asana practice as well in dance, mediation and prayer. They help channel energy, arouse a certain state of mind or create a certain nuance.But did you know when you are deep in thought or concentrating you may naturally bring your hands into a mudra? Have a look around at your co workers or people on your commute that are deep in thought and notice what they are doing with their hands.
Hakini Mudra is well known to aid concentration, focus and improve brain power by helping to bring together the right and left sides of the brain. I actually learned about this Hand Mudra before I started practicing Yoga while at Dance college. Our Ballet teacher taught us some 'Brain Gym' to help us focus and improve our technique which is pretty cool.
Here are some tips on Hakini Mudra...
Happy focusing friends. Have a wonderful brain powerful day!
