Technically, you can meditate just about anywhere and in any position, but ideally, you should try to meditate in one of several meditative poses. Why? There's nothing magical about the meditative poses, except that they arrange your body in a way ideal for meditation. Your spine is aligned so energy can flow freely. Your body is relaxed and comfortable. Meditative poses should feel so wonderful that you barely notice your body. If a meditative pose is uncomfortable or painful, you aren't quite ready for it yet. Try a different one.

Mudras are special hand positions you can use while meditating to channel energy back through the fingers into the spinal column's chakras, directing and rebalancing prana in the body. Choose from the mudras in the following illustration; mix and match mudras to enhance your yoga practice of meditation. (See Chapter 20 for more on chakras and mudras.)
