    Personal Insights

    I love Hakini mudra. I commonly perform this mudra when I'm listening intently and absorbing information I find valuable such as during a yoga workshop or retreat.

    I find that Hakini's third eye activation engages my focus and keen cognition of the content I'm listening to. This mudra also seems to trigger a deeper seeding of memory in my experience.

    I'd highly recommend trying this mudra during any yoga festival, lecture, lesson, or workshop you attending.
