Energy Medicine Yoga: This Variation on Anjali Mudra Releases Pent-Up Emotions

When it comes to working with your subtle energy, a slight alteration in hand position can make all the difference. For example, let’s take Anjali Mudra (Salutation Seal). Here, teachers Donna Eden and Lauren Walker—who both lead our upcoming course, Energy Medicine Yoga—show you a modification that connects your throat and heart chakras and taps into a powerful meridian that governs your fight, flight, or freeze response. The results? You’ll release “stuck” energy and suppressed emotions, so you can free yourself from stress and tap into inner calm and compassion.
