What Is Hand Posture?

Simply put, hand posture is the yogic posturing of the fingers in various ways. In yoga, apart from yoga asanas (yogic exercises) and pranayama (yogic breathing exercises), hasta mudras, or hand postures, play an important role. In fact, hasta mudra, or hand posture, is a complete science in and of itself.

The whole universe is made up of five elements: fire, air, space, earth, and water, and likewise, the human body is composed of these five elements. The fingers of the hand represent these five elements individually.

  • The thumb represents fire.
  • The first finger represents air.
  • The middle finger represents space.
  • The ring finger represents the earth.
  • The little finger represents water.

If these five elements are in harmony with one another in the body, we are healthy. An imbalance of these five elements leads to disease. When the elements are balanced, the body's systems function optimally.

The hand postures (I'll refer to them as simply mudras from now on) start working immediately. An interesting point to note here is that the mudras of one hand cause improvement in the body's opposite side; that is, the left-hand mudras affect the right side of the body and vice versa. These mudras can be done while walking, sitting, or standing. If sitting, we can sit in any position, be it in Padmasana, Vajrasana, or Sukhasana pose.

These mudras should be done every day, beginning with 10 minutes a day, extending to 30 to 45 minutes for full effect. This duration can be evenly split into two or three sessions. The mudras should be done on an empty stomach.

@komalakiran, do Prithvi & Prana mudra regularly for 3 months.

@Devi, are you doing it the right way as I have mentioned in this article. Please double check. Healthy diet is also necessary.

@simi it depends on which mudra you intend doing.

tnx for replying...

Rajan Singh Jolly (author) from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on May 08, 2014:

nahal, you ought to do Varun mudra for the duration as explained in this article.

Manish on May 08, 2014:

Thanks again Mr. Rajan for the clarification.

Since I practice only yoga mudras and not acupressure what it means is that I don't need to press the kidney point.

As I mentioned previously I was concerned about locating and pressing the kidney point correctly but now I know I son't need to press it at all.

nahal on May 08, 2014:

hii...plz guide me about curing Eczema by hand mudras...tnx

Rajan Singh Jolly (author) from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on May 07, 2014:

Yog mudras balance the 5 elements in the body and eliminate disease while in acupressure you need to press specific points to release accumulated toxins. To help in better removal of toxins it is suggested to press the kidney point after acupressure.

I hope its clear Manish?

Manish on May 07, 2014:

Many thanks Mr. Rajan. I am highly grateful to you for providing such useful information.

Just one final question related to this.... I promise!

Why one need to press kidney point after acupressure but it's not required after yoga mudras.... for some reason I always thought both acupressure and yoga mudras are similar and work on the body in the same way. Can you please explain.

Rajan Singh Jolly (author) from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on May 06, 2014:

Manish, glad this cleared the questions you had. Pressing the kidney point will keep the kidneys healthy and thus make for better removal of toxins. But even if you do it any other time it is good because the kidneys points are being pressed daily which will help to keep the kidneys in optimum working condition.

Manish on May 06, 2014:

Many thanks Mr.Rajan for clearing my doubt.

In acupressure, will it harm the kidneys if one doesn't press it in the end to flush out the toxins as everyone may not be aware about it and accupressure is considered to be harmless.

Rajan Singh Jolly (author) from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on May 06, 2014:

Manish, the kidney point need not be pressed after doing hast mudras. However it can be done independent of acupressure too. It is located roughly in the center of the palm.

Hope this helps.

Manish on May 06, 2014:

I am still eagerly waiting for your reply to my query above. It would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Rajan Singh Jolly (author) from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on April 02, 2014:

I don't think Shankh mudra increases height, Lilly but with yogasanas you can, but not in adults.

Lilly nicol on April 01, 2014:

I've just read about shankha mudra that, it does help in growing height in children. So doesn't it work same for adults?

Rajan Singh Jolly (author) from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on March 29, 2014:

Lilly, I'm not aware of any mudras that specifically are for increasing height. You could try yoga and pranayam for that.

Thanks for reading.

Lilly nicol on March 28, 2014:

Can mudra help specifically for gaining inches in height? If so then which.

Waiting anxiously .

Sayed on January 26, 2014:

which mudras are good for kidney problem and for swollen ankel please reply.

Manish on December 09, 2013:

Hi Rajan, do you need to press 'Kidney Point' in hand after practicing mudras or this is required only if someone is pressing acupressure points in hand?

Also what's the exact location of kidney point in hand as different chart show the location differently. Is it roughly centre of the palm?

As you have stated in your acupressure post it is important to press this point at the end of acupressure, I would like to know the exact location.

Since pressing this point flushes out toxins from kidney, will it harm the kidney if someone doesn't press this point in the end?

Vianya, gyan mudra is the simplest and the one most used for meditation. This is not to say that the rest are complicated. I mean it is the easiest to remember.

I'm glad you like the article. Thanks.

I have read about hand mudras but I always forget what is what. I can only remember Gyan mudra because I use this hand postures while meditating. Thanks for this wonderful article.

This is an ancient Indian yoga practice, Millionaire Tips, and very effective. I've personally used it. It works amazingly fast if used regularly.

Thanks for visiting.
