My Yoga Practice

ultimate yogi 108 Banner

Taught my Autumnal Equinox yoga class outside at sunset tonight. Was lots of fun! Great group to work with. So proud of them for working hard and growing 🙏

Hello! I am trying to get more into meditation and I was curious as to the different ways to hold your hands during meditation and what they mean? Thank you so much!

Hand positions, also known as mudras, are used more in yoga asanas (poses). In the tradition of meditation that I practice there are no particular mudras required for practice.

Generally in seated meditation, just rest your hands palms down on your thighs. If your hands are too far forward on your knees, you may find it pulls your alignment forward. Likewise, too close to the hips may push you backward. Another option would be to rest one hand in the other palms up with thumbs gently touching in cosmic mudra if you prefer.

After meditating for some years, I began to see the patterns of my own behavior. As you quiet your mind, you begin to see the nature of your own resistance more clearly, struggles, inner dialogues, the way in which you procrastinate and develop passive resistance against life. As you cultivate the witness, things change. You don’t have to change them. Things just change.
