Mudras are known as Yoga of the hands with Mantras being yoga in the form of intentional sound. Both are meditation tools used to enhance mindfulness and spiritual enlightenment. Ancient sages believed our hands hold energetic points of the five elements (space, air, fire, water and earth) and that manipulating the hands into different shapes (mudras) gives you the ability to manipulate the elements. Each day of this challenge will teach the participating yogis a new symbolic and ritualistic mudra from the Hindu and Buddhist culture along with a Mantra that reflects the intention of the given mudra. Each participant is encouraged to meditate on the paired mantra while practicing the given mudra in any asana of choice.
