Did you know that you may use your hands to create perfect harmony and peace? When practicing yoga, it’s vital to adopt certain hand postures known as mudras, or spiritual gestures.
It will make your life happier.
The human body is said to be made up of the five elements: fire, air, space, water, and earth.
Index finger: Air
Middle finger: Space
Ring finger: Water
Pinky Finger: Earth
Because there are many nerve endings centered in the fingers, they are believed to hold energetic points. By pressing on these energetic points, we can control the elements that support the circulation of energy throughout the body.
It’s exciting because you can do it anywhere, anytime, and all you need is a few minutes and a place to relax.
