Exploration of Mudras through Asana Pranayama, Yoga Nidra and Meditation.
A mudra is a gesture, usually done with the hands that focuses and directs energy in a yoga pose or meditation.
Mudras are ancient in origin. Sometimes Mudras are also called seals since you are actively joining two parts
of the hand, this is thought to create pathways for energy [prana] to help unblock the chakras [the energy points in the body].

"Yoga is a gentle way to exercise and relax. I first started yoga 6 years ago when I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease and in so much pain that I was unable to do any other form of exercise. I truly believe regular yoga practice has greatly improved my overall feeling of wellbeing and helped me to keep my Crohn's under control. I now look forward each week to the relaxation I get from my yoga practice and without it, I soon start to feel life's tensions returning."
The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity answered
"Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, then dies never really having lived."
