  6. thnx for yr efforts
    can mudra be done while walking,,,,or while on bed…..will it work properly or any ristrictions in it..

  7. Dear Ali,

    Mudras will not be perfect if you do while walking. Also you won’t get the proper benefit if you do lying on bed. Bcoz, ur concentration won’t be proper.

    Though there is no restrictions as such, it is good to do it in the morning, sitting in a peaceful place with fresh air and do. Your blood circulation will add to the benefits.

  8. Mythili, A very good article for all. Regular practice will do wonders…Thank you for sharing and for your effort in posting with the drawings…
