Apart from breathing, our Trixie tongue tricks is one of the few parts of our bodies that can be purposefully controlled. Through exercises such as those described below, exercises can strengthen and lengthen it for a more youthful appearance.
With practice, yogis can roll their tongue to first touch the roof of their mouth i.e. palate before eventually moving it further towards nasal cavities for greater effects, thus eliminating thirst, hunger and decay.
1. Khechari Mudra
This advanced mudra has profound spiritual and physical effects. It stimulates the pituitary gland and acupressure points located within the upper palate of the mouth and throat to create greater awareness, expanding one’s awareness further still. Furthermore, this mudra helps awaken higher chakras like Crown Chakra for psychic awareness as well as eliminating thirst and hunger by regulating hormone secretions, strengthening jawbones, and improving digestion.
To perform this mudra, extend and roll back your tongue until it touches the soft palate with it, possibly using fake swallowing as needed to get it up higher. After which, place it inside the nasal cavity behind the palate (nasopharynx). With practice, yogis may even touch their uvula at the back of their throat!
2. Kechari Mudra
Khechari mudra is an advanced and spiritual form of tongue yoga that requires great focus, skill and care when performing. Referred to in ancient yogic texts as “king among mudras,” beginning this practice under an experienced guru is recommended in order to avoid damaging either your tongue or mouth; once familiarity has been reached it may take several months until one becomes proficient at Khechari Mudra practice.
Practice of this mudra can help stimulate both the pituitary gland (bindu) and Visuddhi chakra or third eye. Additionally, it balances high blood pressure while aiding food assimilation. Finally, its practice makes tongue more sensitive to taste; one can then determine which of five elements dominate based on what tastes come through: sweet-earth, sour-air, salty water, pungent fire or bitter ether/aether.
3. Kechari Mudra
This mudra of the tongue should only be performed under the supervision of a teacher, as it involves gradually cutting away and lengthening its lower tendon (frenum).
This exercise can be very powerful and help yogis/devotees reach a state of universal God-knowledge. It stimulates the conception meridian at points C23 and CO24 of the throat to increase vitality and resistance to diseases.
Raise and slide back the tip of your tongue until it touches the hard palate in your mouth cavity. At first, this may only reach as far as touching hard palate, but with regular practice this can move to soft palate and then even further forward to touch uvula of throat.
4. Kechari Mudra
Yogananda said Kechari Mudra stimulates the master gland and draws in and up prana from all five senses to bring spiritual energy inward, which allows its practitioner to control words and emotions while improving brain development – aiding against memory loss as we age.
To perform this mudra, one begins by rolling their tongue up until it touches either their hard or soft palate, and eventually moving further back towards their throat’s uvula with continued practice. This highly spiritual gesture can assist yogis in transcending thirst, hunger, decay and death to gain access to universal God-knowledge.
Practice of this mudra should only be done under the direction of an experienced teacher, and over time cut away at the lower tendon of your tongue bit by bit to make it longer for this purpose.
5. Kechari Mudra
Khechari Mudra works by stimulating and activating various pressure points located on the upper soft palate, throat and nasal cavity. This activates secretions of enzymes and hormones which reduce hunger and thirst while improving digestion and creating psychological harmony.
Regular practice of this posture has been proven to balance thyroid gland secretions, thus decreasing hunger and thirst while maintaining weight control, controlling anxiety and stress levels, preventing insomnia, as well as improving heart health and increasing metabolic rate.
With advanced practice, the tongue can extend beyond the soft palate to enter nasal passages – an area where Yogic texts indicate that divine life currents draw one towards higher consciousness. To ensure optimal results during this practice it is advisable to work alongside an experienced practitioner.
