A Grounding Yoga Mudra for Moms

Video Duration:
1:16

Bhumisparsha Mudra will help you regain your center (and sanity) amidst the kid-created screaming, crying, and chaos. It is an ancient mudra, or hand gesture, that you may recognize from images and statues of the Buddha. Bhumisprasha Mudra can be translated as “earth-touching gesture.” This symbolic pose is said to represent the moment in which Buddha claimed the earth as witness to his enlightenment. It can also be a symbol of unwavering dedication and commitment. Drop into Bhumisparsha any time you need to feel rooted, and reminded of your devotion to yourself and family.
