Turkey Mudra – Just in Time for the Holiday
Garuda is the king of birds and the air – this mudra is invigorating and stimulating. It activates circulation, invigorates the organs and balances energies on both sides of the body and brain. It also promotes clear-sightedness and an ability to take only what is needed (an important lesson during a holiday that places an emphasis on a large, heavy meal), resulting in contentment.
