Yogi Priest Swami Shiva Nand Jee Practices the Shambhvi Mudra (sealing posture), he rolls his eyes up and inside, to better focus on the third eye. This is a position practiced by the god Shiva and adopted by many yogis. A useful practice in meditation to avoid being distracted by outside elements, it is not recommended to beginners as eye injuries can occur. In this exercise, the tongue is also out to further stretch all the facial muscles.
