Gyana mudra


Lightly connect the tip of the thumb with the tip of the index finger. Keep the other fingers relaxed. Hold this mudra for at least a couple of minutes with both your right and left hands. Although there are various variations, the Gyan mudra is most commonly used with the hands resting on the knees and the elbows straight in Yoga practice.



Shunya hastha mudra

  • To begin, sit in any comfortable seating position and place your hands on your thighs or knees, palms facing upwards.

  • Mudras are best practised in meditation postures such as Padmasana, Siddhasana, Swastikasana, Vajrasana, and others.

  • Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths while paying attention to the process.

  • Fold your middle finger in half and press it between your thumb and forefinger. You may experience some discomfort. That, however, does not persist long.

  • All remaining fingers should be kept fully stretched.

  • It should also be done with both hands at the same time.

  • Practice this every day, for 35 minutes at a stretch, or 10 to 12 minutes three times a day.



Bandha for Hypothyroidism


Jalandhara bandha

  • Start by sitting in a cross-legged position or any comfortable sitting posture.

  • With your palms facing upwards, place your hands on your knees. Inhale deeply until your lungs are two-thirds full, then hold your breath.

  • Make a double chin by lowering your chin and drawing it closer to your chest. Lift your sternum towards your chin at the same time. Swallow as your chin approaches your sternum and your breath is evacuated. This will aid in the activation of the bandha. Lower your shoulders away from your ears. Experience the stillness.

  • Hold for as long as it feels good, then lift your chin and finish your inhalation before exhaling.
