Benefits and Steps of Linga Mudra

Mudras are hand locks that allow one to focus on the different elements within the body and rearrange their flow in order to achieve a specific purpose. Linga is the Sanskrit term for phallus.

The Linga Mudra is so called because it increases body heat by focusing on the element of fire inside the body.
