Kapha Nashak Mudra
Method: This mudra is formed by first placing the ring and the little fingers on the base of the thumb and then bringing gentle pressure of the thumb upon these fingers.
Effects: This mudra increases the Pitta humor but decreases the Kapha humor within the body. Pitta is concerned with the bodily heat (digestion/metabolism) and the circulatory system.
