Last week in our yoga practice we learned the Fish Mudra. I picked this mudra because it is for osteoarthritis and the health of our joints. It also "cultivates relaxation and serenity." (Mudras for Healing and Transformation by Joseph and Lilian Le Page)
Sit yourself comfortably, relaxing shoulders and allowing your arms to relax at your sides. Bring the fingers of both of your hands together with thumbs extended. Stack the right hand on top of the left with thumbs extended. Hold your hands in front of your abdomen or relax them onto your lap. Relax and breath. Try repeating, "Bathed in waves of nourishing energy, my body moves freely and comfortable" as you hold the Matsya Mudra. (Mudras page 22)
I enjoy yoga as it brings peace to my life. Teaching yoga has brought joy to my life and given me a chance to encourage others in learning yoga.
