Yoni Mudra

The Yoni mudra can be described as a gesture that allows a person to get detached from the chaos of the outer existing world.

Yoni means uterus or womb and this gesture is named the Yoni Mudra, because the person who practices it regularly has no external contact with the world, pretty much like a baby in the uterus.

The yogis who practice this mudra visualize all their chakras. They also are in sync with their inner sounds. Scriptures state that after practicing the yoni mudra, right-handed people will hear the inner sounds in their right ear and left-handed people will hear the sounds in their left ear.


In order to practice the Yoni Mudra you need to –

  • Cover your ears securely with your thumbs
  • Place your index fingers on your eyes, covering them
  • Use both your middle fingers to pinch your nostrils
  • Press your lips together with your ring finger just above the top lip and your pinky below the lower lip
  • Breathe in and out slowly, relieving your clamp over the nostrils  when you do so


Some of the health benefits of yoni mudra include –

  • Relieving stress
  • Relaxation and rejuvenation of the mind. Stabilizing the nervous system
  • Maintaining a state of mental clarity and relaxation
  • Attaining spiritual calmness and mental development

It is necessary for you to check with a doctor before you practice any yoga gesture, exercise or pose, irrespective of how simple it feels to pull it off.
