What is Hast Kriya?
Hast Kriya is a dynamic and uplifting yoga practice that utilizes various hand movements, breathwork, and meditation to awaken and balance the energy within your body. Derived from the ancient wisdom of Kundalini Yoga, Hast Kriya focuses on the power of your hands, which are considered the extension of your heart and mind.
Through specific hand gestures and exercises, Hast Kriya stimulates the energy meridians and channels, promoting vitality, clarity, and a deep connection to your inner self. This practice allows you to channel your intentions and manifest your desires by harnessing the energy flow between your hands, heart, and the universe.

Techniques and Practices
Hast Kriya involves a variety of hand movements, mudras, breathwork exercises, and meditations. Each technique has its unique purpose and effect on the energy centers, or chakras, of your body. Here, we provide you with an overview of some key Hast Kriya techniques:
Pran Mudra, also known as the Energy Mudra, is one of the foundational hand gestures in Hast Kriya. By joining the tip of your thumb with the tip of your little finger, you are connecting the energies of fire and water within your body. This mudra helps to enhance your vital life force energy, activate your dormant potentials, and balance the elements within. Regular practice of Pran Mudra can help you experience deep relaxation and inner tranquility.
Buddhi Mudra, or the Gesture of Communication, involves touching the tip of your thumb to the tip of your little finger, while keeping the other fingers extended. This mudra stimulates the energy of communication, intuition, and receptivity. It sharpens your intellect, enhances your intuitive abilities, and promotes clear and effective communication. By incorporating Buddh Mudra into your Hast Kriya practice, you can experience improved mental focus and clarity.
Samana Vayu Kriya
Samana Vayu Kriya is a powerful breathwork technique that balances the digestive system and activates the inner fire of transformation. This technique involves inhaling deeply, holding the breath, and exhaling forcefully. Through this practice, you can awaken the digestive fire, improve metabolism, and purify your physical and energetic body. Samana Vayu Kriya is not only beneficial for physical health but also supports emotional well-being, helping you release stagnant energy and toxic emotions.
Heart Connection Meditation
Heart Connection Meditation is a beautiful practice that combines hand movements and affirmations to open and expand your heart center. By gently touching the center of your chest with the palm of your hand, you create a profound connection with your heart's energy. As you recite positive affirmations or mantras with focused intention, you deepen your connection to love, compassion, and gratitude. This meditation nourishes your heart center, allowing you to radiate love and compassion into the world.
