Science Of Yoga Hasta Mudras For Students

Mudras are simple hand gestures that tune us into the subtle energies of the body.  They are a form of yoga using hands.  Research shows us that mudras engage certain areas in the brain, creating a brain-body connection.   Different areas of the hands are connected with different areas of the brain and body.  When children place their hands in different hand positions or mudras it can activate a certain state of mind.  Therefore, mudras can positively affect how your child feels.  Mudras energize, focus, and calm the body which makes them a great tool for children to help regulate how they are feeling.

The fingers in our hands have numerous nerves meeting at their tips. Also, each finger represents one of the elements present in our body. These elements are fire, air space, Earth, and water. With various combinations of these fingers, our body elements, also known as pancha mahabhutas are brought into balance. Hasta mudras are believed to facilitate healing and meditation and to affect the flow of energy in the body.
