For my IYT internship for I need to experience a mudra for each of the Doshas. Here is the hand position for Surya Mudra which I practiced this morning with palms up on my lap sitting on my couch with support behind my back.
Surya Mudra was chosen to balance Kapha Doha. I was surprised that was the Mudra - Joseph Le Page chose for the internship. I thought we would chose Ratna Prabha Mudra which is just for Kapha balancing where as Surya mudra is for balancing both Vata and Kapha.
I felt the sun at my chest and my Solar Plexus.
My favorite part was the affirmation
"Awakening my inner sun's radiant energy, I live with abundant vitality."
Because of my tremor, my hands have a hard time using the mudra without tension and shaking. I wonder if I practiced every day if we hand tension would ease.
