Yoga Tattva Mudra Vigyan – Healing with Hand Mudras

Yoga is often perceived as a physical practice of postures that helps an individual’s flexibility, balance, and strength.

Couple of weeks ago, I came across a beautiful soul who told me something that resonates with my being. He was a cancer patient who stayed for a few weeks at City of Hope. Back in his young days, he was a professional surfer who travelled and took part in competitions around the world thanks to his sponshorship by Quicksilver and Billabong.

Fear causes inner pain and I understand that a lot of us just want out. We want to run away from our problems or the reality of life altogether.

When I was a little girl, I recalled how much mindful awareness I had in my everyday life. It colored my everyday and exemplified my emotions, feelings, and experiences.
