Anshuka captioned her post, “Do you suffer from motion sickness? Since ancient times Yoga mudras have been practiced to direct the flow of vital energy (prana) through the energy channels (nadis) in the human body. The Shunya Mudra is a hand gesture believed to have various health benefits, including alleviating motion sickness. Next time you hit the road, avoid taking medication and instead start practising the Shunya Mudra.”

To practice the Shunya Mudra, one should place the tip of their middle finger at the base of the thumb. Then, press down gently on the middle finger with your thumb. Do the mudra with both hands.
