My girlfriend bought this book for me, and I have to say I was skeptical. I am not a 'New Age' kind of guy. But this book is good. The photos show clearly what to do, and the information straightforward and clear. The great thing about these mudras is you only have to do them for a few minutes, with the specific breathing technique she outlines,and you can feel them work. I do them in my office, and at home with my girlfriend. It is a healthy and easily integrated practice. I'm convinced, but I still won't eat tofu.
I highly recommend Healing Mudras, Yoga For Your Hands. This book gives an in depth study for each mudra, or hand gesture, explains excactly which chakra and what condition it specifically helps. It is easily understandable and clear in regards to breathing and detailed photos show how easily this practice can be done. I have been looking for a book on this subject and was worth the wait. I got the videotape as well, and it is the best! I suffer from migraine headache and have found actual relief by doing these Mudras. Run don't walk to get this book!
I waited for this book with anticipation. I received it and had to read it over and over to check and see if I was missing something. I did not, it simply wasn't in there. This book could have been written by a newpaper writer, who had done brief research on the art of mudras, and worded his findings in a sunday paper article. The author here, commited no more than a paragraph to most aspects of mudra, barely even brushing over the manner and reasoning of use. I know no more about mudras than before I read this book. I hope this new trend of bubble gum writing comes to an end. I am surely tired of wasting my time and money on it.
