Personal Insights

What an amazing mudra this is. Ananta mudra is a great addition to the Infinity Breath meditation, a meditation practice that I use on a regularly basis to center and create space within myself.

Ananta mudra is difficult to hold for extended periods of time. One method of meditation I have found to be a beautiful practice is to begin meditating with Anjali mudra, unfolding into Padma mudra when I begin to feel energy rising, and when I feel connected I open into Ananta mudra.

Give it a try!
