Gyan Mudra or Chin Mudra (Psychic gesture of Knowledge)

Gyan Mudra (Chin Mudra) is the most commonly used posture while meditating. It energises your body with physical and mental health.

In Sanskrit:
Chin means consciousness, and
Mudra means gesture or seal.

Thus, Gyan mudra could easily be understood as a ‘gesture of consciousness’. Since this Mudra uses the Index finger it stimulates the air element in the body. It is one of the most used mudras in Yoga.
