It’s very useful for people suffering from weak heart and excess cholesterol. Ganesha mudra strengthens the heart by opening the bronchial tubes, improving blood circulation and by opening the heart chakra (Anahata chakra).
It’s named after the Hindu god ganesha – one who removes the obstacles from your life. If you are living in a state of depression and in the absence of trust and openness, please practice it regularly. It will improve the love, compassion, courage and openness around you.
Please keep your left arm at the level of your chest (closer to heart) with palm facing outside. Now grasp it with your right hand as shown in the figure. Now exhale vigorously while pulling the both hands in opposite direction. Inhale slowly, take a deep breath and release the tension in the hands. Repeat it six times. After that change the position of the hands and repeat six times.
