Ganesh Mudra (elephant gesture or gesture of the elephant god) is an energetic posture/gesture for awakening anahata chakra, the luminous heart center. This mudra is designed with the intention of stimulating the energy within and surround anahata chakra which acts as a conduit for awakening higher states of cognition including compassion, love, and empathy.

This mudra allows for an expressive connection to Lord Ganesh, the remover of obstacles who allows for advancing growth in spirituality.

Anatomically this posture targets the chest, arms, shoulders, and upper back thereby toning them and increasing their strength. It can also be used to relieve tension suspended within the deeper skeletal muscles that are hidden underneath the shoulder blades that can sometimes be a victim of psycho-somatic tension.
