Do you think that it is possible to reach a state of peace and harmony just with our hands? Here, we’re going to present you what can happen if you stretch your ring finger with your thumb! You’ll be really amazed!
The positions of hands or otherwise called ”mudras” have had a very important role in the practice of yoga, so they are also known as “the producers of joy.”
