Apaan Mudra-Detoxify, purify, Energize

Mudras help to channel the flow of energy through the body.  The five fingers represent the five elements:
Apaan Mudra-Detoxify, Purify, EnergizeThumb – Fire.
Index – Air.
Middle – Ether or the spaces between cells within the body.
Ring – Earth.
Pinky – Water.

From a yoga scientific perspective, electromagnetic currents in the body are brought into balance by joining fingers in a variety of ways. Accordingly, a mudra is believed to affect the flow of energy or prana through the body.

The Apaan Mudra is known as the purification mudra.  It cleanses the body and thus helps in elimination of waste matter from nose, mouth, ears and eyes. It is very useful in case of stomachache, constipation, and urinary problems.

Here are the simple directions for using the Apaan Mudra:

1.  Stand or sit up straight.  2. Bend middle, ring fingers and thumb so that their tips are touching.  Index and little fingers are pointing straight.  3.  The Apaan Mudra is usually performed with both hands and held for at least 30 minutes. (You can divide it into three sessions of 10 to 15 minutes).
