Mudras are symbolic gestures made by the body, and more specifically in this case, by the hands. Each mudra has a specific purpose and is commonly used in yoga and meditation practices to focus and direct energy in the subtle body. Mudra is defined as a "seal, "mark," or "gesture." Most of these symbols come from ancient Hindu and Buddhist traditions and are meant to deepen one's connection by facilitating the flow of energy throughout the body, freeing up prana (energy) and directing it to other areas for healing.
