With the dawn of social media, we’re constantly exposed to everything our friends are doing, wearing, and eating. When our anxiety kicks in, and the overthinking starts, it might be time to unplug and detach yourself from all the chaos you surround yourself with.
That’s when you turn to Yoni Mudra 2 to help you detach and take a step back from all the craziness of life and focus on you instead.
Detachment From Chaos (Yoni Mudra 2)
It’s okay to feel too claustrophobic from being connected to everyone and everything 24/7. Afterall, being constantly connected to anything is not always a good thing for the mind or the body.
Yoni Mudra 2 allows you to build on your creative energy and detach yourself from the outside world. This particular mudra represents the womb of Kali, a fearsome goddess that believes there is no time for drama.
Kali represents self, love, and fearlessness, which is what this practice is all about. Tap into your inner feminine power and get your focus back on yourself by practicing this fierce pose.
Yoni Mudra 2 Directions:
Stand or sit in a comfortable position and bring your hands together, palms facing each other with your fingers pointed away from your lower stomach. Place your thumbs to your navel and your index fingers on the pubic bone.
If standing, bend your knees slightly as if you are sitting on an invisible chair. Spread your hands apart, keeping your palms on the lower belly while your thumbs and index fingers are connected.
Focus on your breath and hold this pose for a few minutes.
Yoni Mudra 2 Precautions:
There are a few conditions where Yoni Mudra 2 should be avoided:
- Low blood pressure
- Psychotic conditions
- Gross osteoarthritis of the knee (if this is the case, use a chair to practice this pose)
