Excellent Resource for this Aspect of Yoga
I purchased this book to augment my knowledge of yoga because mudras (at least on the East Coast of the US) tend not to be a significant part of yoga teacher trainings. The few that I had worked with previously had been very effective when working with anxiety and insomnia and I wanted to learn more.
Ms. Hirschi's book provides a wealth of knowledge about not only mudras but useful info about foods, aromatherapy, and affirmations to augment the effectiveness of the mudras to cover a host of different ailments. She also provides some guidelines about working mudras into a whole yoga practice, including a section on asanas and other practices to augment mudra practice.
There is a bit more focus on the mudras on physical problems, especially the digestive system, but as I continue to work with the mudras I find each of them also has mental/emotional effects--and all it takes to discover them is sitting with the mudras for a little while and paying attention to your own body, breath, and psyche.
I highly recommend this book to yoga teachers and practitioners--and I'm only withholding one star because I believe the book could have offered more information on the emotional aspects of each mudra.

A good basic reader for beginning study of Mudras.
If you are starting yoga or intimidated by diving into the whole body form, this is a great starting point to the philosophy and practice.
