To ensure your understanding and insight into asanas (yoga poses) which are imperative to the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh, India, our program provides with you with an engaging textbook that describes traditional Hatha yoga postures and how to perform them using proper breathing, focus, and holding time.

A mudra is a symbolic gesture that works in conjunction with pranayama (controlled breathing technique) conveying an attitude, belief or thought. Most commonly, mudras are performed with the hands while seated in Padmasana, Sukhasana or Vajrasana. During the yoga course, you will also learn about additional mudras performed with the face and whole body.
Mudras can be similar to some asanas, though they are practiced with a particular intention, usually focusing on the dynamic flow or a chakra.
A sample of a few Mudras that we learn during the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh India course:
The practice of pranayama is crucial to the yogic lifestyle. The best part of our morning meditation is a profound focus on the practice of a variety of pranayamas each day. Learning to regulate and control the breath via the "prana" is our vital life force, and this is an equally essential source to control our thoughts, minds, body systems functioning, and reaction to life situations. We can, in fact, extend, enhance and improve the quality of our lives through the yogic skills of retaining and elongating the breath.
Some Pranayamas which you will learn and practice during the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh India:
