yoga mudra(the stoop)

The practice of this posture is considered very important for its spiritual value in the higher stages of Yoga training when the pose is maintained for as long as one hour or more. The physical effect of the Yoga Mudra is mainly internal purification, as it helps keep our system clean by promoting a good elimination. To do the Yoga Mudra you must first sit down in the Lotus Posture.


  1. Sit up straight, keeping both legs crossed tailor fashion. Clench your fists and place them on both sides of the abdomen, a little below the navel.
  2. Take a deep breath, and while exhaling bend forward as low as you can, firmly pressing the fists against the abdomen.


Stay in this position from five to ten seconds, holding your breath, then slowly straighten the back, returning to the original posture. Eventually you should increase the time to three minutes, adding one second per week
