Mudras are hand and finger movements that can be practiced any time, anywhere. Nonetheless, it is recommended to practice them sitting, or in one of the following three yoga postures: easy, diamond, lotus, or half-lotus. Practice five to fifteen minutes with the older children; a minimum of ten deep breathing cycles through the nose for the younger ones. Don’t expect them to replicate perfectly. Make sure your child is relaxed; the pressure applied on the fingers must stay light. Eyes must be shut or looking directly ahead, breathing free.
This mudra develops the child’s cognitive ability by activating the connections between the right and left hemispheres of the brain. It improves the functioning of the brain and enhances memorization.
