The word Pran (sometimes Prana) translates from Sanskrit as “life force”. Practicing this Mudra has the benefit of activating dormant energy in the body – it increases our sense of vitality and decreases feelings of fatigue. As we move out of Winter and into Spring, we may need help keeping ourselves in-sync with everything that is reawakening around us. Practicing Pran Mudra is the perfect tool to help with reactivating our “life force”. This Mudra can be practiced anywhere and anytime that you need a quick pick-me-up.
- With your palms facing up, bring the tips of your thumb, little finger and ring finger to touch.
- Let the other two fingers stretch outward and draw toward each other.
- Close your eyes and set an intention to nurture your “life force”.
- As you inhale imagine white light being drawn in through the tips of your two outstretched fingers. Welcome any of the cleansing and energizing properties that are contained in the white light into your body and mind.
- As you exhale, either through your nose or mouth, let go of any feelings of heaviness and lethargy.
