Did you know that you can also do yoga with your fingers and hands? The gestures that we adopt flexing, bending, placing, pressing the fingers, in a specific way, are called Mudras. Some cultures consider them sacred gestures. But they are more than that. Mudras have therapeutic benefits for those who practice them.
When I started my path as a Yoga teacher 5 years ago, I found motivation in sharing with others what had given me so much peace and knowledge about myself. However, I always thought my vocation had come late. Being a Yoga teacher has become something so ubiquitous it was hard to see what I could contribute to my students. What was my mission or Dharma? But then I discovered the difference between Yoga and Yoga Therapy.
