Surahi Mudra

Surahi Mudra is a relatively simple yoga posture or hand position, thought specifically to sharpen the intellect, reduce rheumatic inflammation, cure colds, and improve respiratory conditions.

Each of the different yoga postures is said to have a specific purpose, as the Surahi mudra is responsible for channeling pranic energy.

As with most postures, the practice of Surahi Mudra is traditionally considered one of the best starting points because it is easy to execute.

It can be practiced at any time of the day for as long as desired, and there is no contraindication to this mudra. Let’s know what is the benefit of Surahi Mudra and how to do it.

How TO Do Surahi Mudra
