Sometimes we just need a message from the Universe to pull us through. Does this ring true for you? My grandmother relied on answers from her pendulum for big and small life questions, her open-mindedness to divination tools caught my attention at a young age and I was instantly hooked.

Hello there! If you are following our series on mudras, last week we discussed the Varuna (water) mudra, which is used to increase the water element within the body. Today, I want to talk about the Vayu (air) mudra, which, in contrast, decreases the air element within the body. During my research, I found it interesting that this mudra works to reduce air in the body while the other elements work to increase in the body. But this totally makes sense because too much air in the body causes bloating, puffiness and especially help with joint, neck, and spinal discomfort.

Welcome back to the Zenned Out blog for the second post in our series on yoga mudras. Last week we provided a brief overview of mudras and their benefits. Today and in the following weeks, I want to dive a bit deeper into each individual mudra. Yoga mudras are a set of hand gestures corresponding to the five elements (fire, air, water, earth, and heaven/ether) that help to focus and balance the human body. The Prithvi Mudra is so-called because it helps to equalize the element of Prithvi, or earth, within the body. It is also said to activate the root chakra.
