Yoga Mudras to Open the Heart

Hand Mudras are an amazing way to expand your practice and bring to your aura and chakras a specific flow of energy that you need at the time.  Depending on which hand mudra you choose will decide on the type of healing energy you invite in.  Try to find a nice quiet place to practice or if you’re around children, maybe teach them as well.  Here are a few hand mudras to open your heart chakra.
