For real- – what’s going on here? I always thought that for the namaste gesture or anjali mudra, you just put your palms together and that’s that. So this elbows-up thing, is it a matter of personal taste? Is it perhaps more formal, or more feminine?
Maybe you can tell whether one is a Type A or a Type B by the level of uprightness they bring to their elbows? (Joking.) And to see my most favoritest example of extreme elbows-up anjali mudra, you MUST check out the first few seconds of this vid:
My, does she have perky elbows.
So any ideas out there regarding proper elbow positioning options in namaste? (Being kind of a type A myself, I don’t want to be doing it WRONG.) : )
