Mudras - also playfully called the "finger power points" - are yoga positions for your hands and fingers. They can be practiced sitting, lying down, standing, or walking. They can be done at any time and place-while stuck in traffic, at the office, watching TV, or whenever you have to twiddle your thumbs waiting for someone. Hirschi shows you how these techniques can prevent illness, relieve stress, and heal emotional problems. Bibliography. Index.
IngredientsHand and finger yoga positions enhance health, relieve stress, prevent illness, and support the healing of a variety of physical and emotional problems. You can do them anywhere, anytime- sitting, standing, lying down, or walking. Madonna incorporates them into her musical performances. Got the urge to twiddle your thumbs? Relieve that stress and boredom; practica a Mudra instead!
Yoga for the hands--sounds too good to be true. Do it at the office, on an airplane, lying in bed. Seasoned yoga teacher Gertrud Hirschi has used these hand postures to ease asthma, relieve flu symptoms, think more effectively, relieve tension, even have a bowel movement. The possibilities she attributes to these ancient Indian techniques are endless. Join the tips of the index finger and thumb: this clears the mind. Switch the thumb to the little finger: this restores the body's fluid balance. It's not quite that easy, of course. Hirschi is careful to lay out exercise regimens, related herbal remedies, and associated affirmations. Like a classroom instructor, she guides with simultaneous breathing advice and conjures up helpful images. From building character to healing emotional pain, from bringing luck to connecting with the divine, mudras can work wonders. Now limber up those digits and lets get into spiritual shape. --Brian Bruya, Amazon.com Review
