This asana was practiced by sages in ancient times for its power to awaken the inner Self. The pose elevates one's state of mind to a higher plane and promotes mental vitality.
Stimulating the manipura (solar plexus) chakra, which is the center of vitality and aids in energy balance, yoga mudrasana boosts energy levels and promotes overall health.
This asana also awakens the practitioner's kundalini power, which promotes physical, mental and spiritual awareness.
Yoga mudrasana is an advanced yoga pose, so beginners may initially find it difficult to perform. Those with heart conditions, diabetes, or severe eye conditions should avoid practicing this pose.
