Personal Insights

Palli mudra is a wonderful way to feel protected, sheltered, from external pressures and situations out of your control.

I think with its unique form and finger complexity that it really aids in bringing us into the present moment for an all around protective and balanced wellness within our bodies.

This wellness transcends any immediate obstacles or obstructions in our health- physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual.
