User Review  - twibbie - Overstock.com

As a yoga instructor I found this reference useful to include a greater and more varied array of hand mudras in my classes. I enjoy introducing new mudras to keep the class interesting and offer the students choices for personal expression as we enjoy common asanas. Read full review
