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.
Matching mudras restore the balance in the body
The human body is a mixture of the 5 natural elements – earth, air, water, ether and fire – each element corresponds to one of the five fingers.
The thumb represents the fire, the pointing finger is the air, the middle finger is the ether, the ring finger and the little finger correspond to the elements earth and water.
