Benefits and Steps of Surahi Mudra

Yoga mudras are perhaps one of the most esoteric parts of yoga. Mudras are specific hand positions that are thought to channel the mystical energy that flows through the body in specific pathways. Each of the different yoga mudras has a specific purpose.

Yoga mudras can range from simple to complicated hand gestures. The Surahi Mudra is one of the simpler yoga mudras to perform.
