Our first mudra is Anjali Mudra, also known as the prayer gesture. This mudra symbolises gratitude and harmony within oneself.
How To Anjali Mudra
Bring your palms together at the center of your chest, fingers pointing upward. Gently press the palms together, creating a slight resistance. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths, expressing gratitude for your body and its ability to heal. This mudra helps calm the mind and balance energy, creating a positive mindset in managing diabetes.
Next, we have the Prana Mudra, a mudra that activates the pranic energy, vital life force, within us. You can find Prana Mudra- Mudra of life, in detail here.
How To Prana Mudra
Join the tips of your thumb, ring finger, and little finger together while keeping the other fingers extended. Relax your arms on your thighs, palms facing upward. Close your eyes and take slow, deep breaths.
This mudra improves digestion, boosts metabolism, and helps regulate blood sugar levels.
Now, let's explore the Linga Mudra, a mudra that generates warmth and increases the fire element in the body.
How to Linga Mudra
Interlace your fingers, keeping your left thumb pointing upward. Place your interlaced hands in front of your navel, close to the body. Keep your arms relaxed and breathe deeply.
This mudra helps stimulate the digestive system, improve metabolism, and enhance blood circulation, all beneficial for managing diabetes.
Moving on, we have the Surya Mudra, also known as the Sun Mudra.
How to Surya Mudra
Join your ring finger and thumb together, keeping the other fingers extended. Relax your hands on your thighs, palms facing up.
Take slow, deep breaths as you feel the warmth and energy building within your body.
This mudra is believed to enhance the fire element, boost digestion, and activate the Solar Plexus Chakra contributing to better blood sugar control.
Finally, let's explore the Vayu Mudra, a mudra that helps balance the air element and improve the flow of prana in the body.
How To Vayu Mudra
Gently fold your index finger and place the thumb over it, exerting gentle pressure. Keep the other fingers extended and rest your hands on your thighs, palms facing up.
Close your eyes and take slow, deep breaths, focusing on the breath flowing in and out.
This mudra aids in digestion, reduces flatulence, and enhances overall vitality.
Ideal Time For Doing Yoga Hasta Mudras For Diabetics
There is no specific time for doing the above hand gestures, however, make sure, you have not taken a heavy meal prior to 2-3 hours of your hand gestures session.
Also, hold each mudra somewhere between 5 to 10 minutes or at least 15 to 20 minutes for the best results. It is preferable to sit in a meditative posture, such as, sukhasana or padmasana.
Nevertheless, you can also do these Mudras while sitting comfortably on a chair.
Wrapping Up - Yoga Hasta Mudras for Diabetic People
As I conclude this session on yoga hasta mudras for diabetic individuals, remember that these hand gestures are complementary practices that can support your overall well-being alongside a balanced lifestyle and proper medical care.
Consistency is key when incorporating these mudras into your daily routine.
Remember, yoga is a holistic practice that encompasses not only physical postures but also breathwork, meditation, and mindful living. It is always important to consult with your healthcare provider before making any significant changes to your diabetes management routine.
