MUDRAS FOR LUNGS - AADI MUDRA

Aadi Mudra Pranayama or Primal Gesture Breath helps open the upper lobes of the lungs.

TECHNIQUE

Sit in any comfortable sitting position like Sukh Asana, with the spine in a upright position.

Place the thumbs into the palms, and curl the other fingers over the thumbs.

Place these fists down onto the thighs, with the backs of the hands uppermost.

Close the eyes and breathe naturally, through the nose.

Try to maintain awareness of each breath moving into and out of the nostrils for two or three minutes.

BENEFITS

Aadi Mudra opens the upper lobes of the lungs.

It stimulates Udana Vayu, the Prana that moves upwards in the head region, and outwards to the extremities.

In physical terms, it is in charge of the balancing and healing the sense organs.

In more subtle terms it is in charge of balancing our perceptions.
