Personal Insights

Jala mudra is about fluidity, flow, and flexibility. It's a wonderful addition to a vinyasa style yoga class with fluid motions flowing from pose to pose through transitions- Jala mudra adds an additional layer of flow and beauty to the practice.

I love to perform Jala mudra when my hand comes to a hold or peak such as when raising an arm overhead or extending it toward a side wall. This mudra invites fluidity and watery flow into a yoga practice.
