    Unmani Mudra

    Unmani is Sanskrit word that means “no mind,” “beyond the mind” or “thoughtless.” In yogic philosophy, it describes a state of transition between two states of consciousness – waking and dreaming. In unmani, the yogi is neither fully awake nor asleep. It can also be thought of as the transition between conscious and unconscious thought patterns. Unmani is not a state of meditation, which requires an awakened state The word unmani is also sometimes used to mean samadhi or one of the levels of samadhi, or the final limb of Patanjali's eightfold path of yoga Sit in any comfortable meditative pose Open your eyes to the fullest without straining Inhale slowly and deeply Retain the breath inside and shift the focus to Bindu (Imagine a point at the back of the forehead) Exhale gradually along with descending the awareness from Bindu through the chakras in the spine.

    Kaki Mudra

    Kaki mudra is classified as a mudra, but is in fact a technique of controlled breathing where, on the inhalation, the lips are pursed to create a tube through which air is sucked in slowly and deeply, with the tongue relaxed. At the top of the inhalation, the lips are closed and the exhalation is made through the nose. It can be practiced for at least two minutes, increasing the time as the body gets used to the controlled breathing. From Sanskrit, kaki means “crow” and mudra means "gesture." This mudra is so named because the shape of the mouth on the inhalation resembles a crow’s beak. It is also said to cultivate a healthy long life, which is associated with crows Sit in any meditative posture like sukhasana, padmasana, etc. or on a chair with an erect head and spine Place your hands on the knees either in jnana mudra Keeping the eyes closed relax the entire body for a few minutes Open the eyes and shift your focus on the nose tip without blinking to attain Nasikagra Drishti Purse the lips to give a tube-like structure to the mouth to suck the air in Inhale slowly and deeply through the rounded lips keeping the tongue relaxed Now, close the lips and breathe out through the nostrils Repeat the same process for 3-5 minutes

    Kechari Mudra

    Kechari mudra is a yoga gesture that's designed to awaken spiritual energies in the body. To perform this mudra, the tongue is rolled back and up into the nasal cavity above the soft palate. The practitioner then breathes in, creating a snoring-like sound, followed by an exhale The name for this mudra comes from the Sanskrit kechari or khecari, meaning “transversing the ethereal regions,” and mudra, meaning “seal” or “gesture Khechari Mudra Steps & Stages One should sit in a meditative pose and fix gaze to the center space between eyes i.e. Third eye chakra Close your mouth, take a few deep breaths, and then do normal breathing (As a beginner you can keep your mouth open to be more aware of tongue movement Khechari Mudra Stage 1 – Soft Palate to Uvula To begin Khechari mudra, extend your tongue up and then roll it back to reach as far as you can. Initially, the tongue may barely reach to the hard palate. Do fake swallowing to slide tongue up to the soft palate. Do it 3-4 times until your tongue rests comfortably at the soft palate. Now try to slide your tongue further into the mouth. If you can’t do it by simple means, you can push the back of the tongue with your clean finger. Reach with your tongue at the bottom of your mouth where it touches the Uvula (a punching bag like structure in your mouth hanging over your tongue). Once you reach this far, do it 3-4 times to get your tongue comfortable up to this point Khechari Mudra Stage 2 – Passing The Uvula Now as your tongue touching the uvula, open your glottis and mouth quickly to blow a bit of air inside the throat This strong bust of air will push rolled tongue behind the uvula and your tongue will ready to enter into the nasopharynx Khechari Mudra Stage 3 – Slipping Tongue Into The Nasopharynx Once tongue makes its way behind the uvula, now its turn to find a place behind uvula from where the tongue doesn’t come to its previous position. This part will come naturally, the tongue will begin slipping but at this moment there would be a strong urge of throwing out tongue Keep breathing slowly, observe what’s happening inside your mouth. One just needs to come over this urge by observing the situation Eventually, your tongue will start slipping into nasopharynx behind the soft palate. This will take tongue to the upmost where it touches a bony structure called the pituitary gland Khechari Mudra Stage 4 – Pressing Pituitary to Secrete Nectar Up to this point, the tongue has reached beyond the top of the pharynx. You will feel an emptiness in the mouth on reaching up to this point. Tongue touching at the topmost point here is nothing but space between your third-eye, where you asked to focus on at the beginning of this practice. Physiologically, this is the seat of the ‘Pituitary gland’, the master gland of the body. When the tongue pressed against this, it gets stimulated. Some fluid will start accumulating in your mouth but saliva wouldn’t be swallowed as long as your tongue remains up. Slowly, bring your tongue down to natural position and you will found the taste of saliva accumulated inside your mouth. In the beginning, the taste of it would be bitter, is a sign of detoxification of your bodily system. But with practice, you will realize the bitter taste becomes sweet like honey, strawberry, and butter taste. It’s called ‘Amrita – the bliss of nectar‘ in Hatha Yoga Pradipik

    Shanmukhi Mudra

    Shanmukhi mudra is a sacred hand gesture or "seal," used during yoga and meditation practice as a means of channeling the flow of vital life force energy known as prana. This gesture represents closing the six gates of perception – the eyes, ears, nose and mouth. The term is derived from three Sanskrit roots; shan, meaning "six"; mukhi, meaning "face" or "gate" and mudra, meaning "gesture," "mark" or "seal." Shanmukhi mudra is typically performed in a stable, seated meditation posture such as siddhasana (Accomplished Pose), padmasana (Lotus Pose) or sukhasana (Easy Pose). To practice shanmukhi mudra, first raise both hands in front of the face with elbows pointing outwards, in line with the shoulders. With eyes closed, gently press the index fingers to the inner corners of the eyes, place the middle fingers on either side of the nose, the ring fingers above the lips and the little fingers below the mouth. Use the thumbs to gently close the ears. The spine should remain upright and the shoulders relaxed. Shanmukhi mudra is usually practiced for five to ten minutes, often in preparation for meditation. This mudra is also known as Yoni mudra
