3 Mudras To Help You Through Tough Times

We have three easy mudras for your practice to bring calmness, energy and a no-fear attitude to your life!


Mudras are hand gestures that have been used for thousands of years in the Yogic tradition to provide certain types of energy flow to the brain. This creates patterns in the brain that help to balance and redirect energy to our sensory organs, tendons and gland veins.

Practice these mudras with deep yogic breathing for as little or as long as you like.


Mudra 1: Calm. [Chin Mudra].

How to Practise:

Sit in a comfortable seated position. Create a little circle with each hand by touching the thumb tip to the tip of your index finger. Keep other fingers relaxed. Rest the back of your hands softly on the back of thighs or knees.

How it Works:

  • Invites calmness into the body. 
  • Subtly assists in tuning into yourself and the environment around you. 
  • Helps to generate feelings of harmony, peace and communication.

Mudra 2: Energy. [Prana Mudra]

How to Practise:

Practise in any position your heart desires. Join the ends of your little and ring fingers to the tips of the thumbs. Keep the other fingers relaxed

How it Works:

  • Creates an invigorating flow of prana/energy that helps to rejuvenate the body and mind.
  • Helps with endurance, the immune system, weak muscles and teeth.

Mudra 3: No Fear. [Abhaya Mudra]

How to Practice:
