The Yoga version of 'the spock'
Over the last few weeks, our super lovely yoga teacher, Lucie Ataya, has treated us to the practice of mudras and shown you the what's, the why's and the how's, so that you can add these to your yoga and meditation practice.
Mudras (hand gestures) work at the physical, psychological and spiritual levels and regular practice can help create inner peace and deep strength. Those who practice mudras in their yoga sessions have also claimed that they help to eliminate fatigue and anxiety, reduce self-criticism and feelings of anger, helps calm their minds, plus sharpen their intuition and happiness! Who wouldn't want to give all this a go, right!!!
