Mudras (or hand gestures) is a practice known since ancient times. It is most commonly used in combination with pranayama (breathing exercises), asanas (body positions) and meditation. The aim of the Mudras is the improvement of physical, mental and spiritual well-being.

Our hands describe our fate. The fingers are called”energy points”, which represent an interface between the individual energy of life and the cosmic energy.


Delicate hand and feet movements make important connections in the nervous system and thus stimulate specific energies.
