Sahajoli / Vajroli Mudra

Sahajoli /Vajroli Mudra

Sit in any comfortable meditation pose. Close the eyes and let the body settle. Take the awareness to the Urethra.

Inhale, hold the breath inwards and practise drawing the urethra upwards. This is the same sensation as if you were trying to stop urination. In fact you can practise this while urinating to become conscious of and train the muscles involved. 

The testes in men and the labia in women move slightly with Vajroli/Sahajoli Mudra.

Try isolate the movement to the urethra...bending forwards a little helps.

Practise when stomach is empty. Hold each contraction for a few seconds. Start with 2 or 3 rounds and build up over time to about 10 rounds.

This mudra tones the uro-gential complex, corrects impotence, and benign prostate troubles. This mudra connects the Vajra nadi with the Bindu in the brain.

  • I find it helpful for sahajoli mudra to say that you draw up the front muscles of the pelvic floor as though you are trying very hard to not wee. :)

    This mudra relates to svadhisthana, so there can be a sense of breathing in through the contraction to svadhisthana (sacral chakra) holding the awareness there as the breath and contraction is maintained, with the optional tattwa bija mantra vaam repeated mentally to hold the focus.  It's as though svadhisthana is anchoring the contraction.  Exhale, releasing as though from svadhisthana, out through the contraction..  

    The same for Ashwini (contracting the anal sphincter) which also has the relationship with svadhisthana.   Moola Bandha is, of course, a mooladhara practice.

    • Thanks Atma
