Today we will talk about Gyan Mudra. Surely you have seen somewhere an image of a person meditating or doing Yoga making gestures with their hands, these hand gestures are called Mudras.

Gyan Mudra

1. Place your thumb against your index finger, forming a zero;
2. Keep the other fingers straight.
Do this mudra when you are meditating, with your legs crossed and your spine erect, or in your Yoga practice.

What is Gyan Mudra?

Gyan Mudra is the knowledge mudra, it is widely used when we want to learn something, to transmit knowledge, and absorb good energy.
Those who do meditation or yoga use this mudra a lot and it is very easy to do.

How to do:

How do we do Gyan Mudra? Take your thumb and gently touch your index finger, without squeezing too much, as if we apply force we won’t be able to maintain the position for long. Just touch your fingers, forming a zero and leaving the other fingers up. So, to see a demonstration, watch the video below from our Ayurveda expert!

Besides, it is the first mudra that we do, simply when we are sitting or we are doing meditation, yoga with the leg crossed, the back straight, the hand relaxed, this is Gyan Mudra.


Last, this mudra connects all internal energy to external energy and has many benefits.
