Nabho Mudra

Last updated: December 21, 2023

What Does Nabho Mudra Mean?

Nabho mudra, a Raja yoga practice, is a simpler version of khecari mudra, which is a Hatha yoga practice. The term is derived from the Sanskrit, nabho, meaning “sky,” and mudra, meaning “gesture.”

To perform nabho mudra, sit in a comfortable yoga pose such as padmasana, sukhasana or vajrasana. Turn the tongue upward and place the tip of the tongue against the palate. Keep the mouth closed. Focus the gaze on the space between the eyebrows. Remain in this state for two minutes. The saliva secreted while practicing nabho mudra should be swallowed slowly.

In yoga, there are various types of mudras that are performed using hand gestures to support the flow of prana throughout the body.

Unlike khecari mudra, nabho mudra is easy to perform, but both aid in meditation.

Several benefits of nabho mudra include stimulating the function of the thymus gland and promoting an uninterrupted flow of energy from the head to feet. It also improves heart and lung health. By supporting energy flow, this mudra promotes overall health and wellness while relieving physical and mental stress.
