One of my favourite quotes is from the Dao De Ching - chapter 40... A short chapter
Returning is the movement of the Dao
Yielding is the manner of the Dao
All things are born of being
Being is born of non-being

Here is Cat, our resident Meridian Yoga Teacher, as well as Shiatsu Practitioner, demonstrating some quick and simply yoga mudras and postures to help you release your stress and anxiety.
Bring your palms to touch in Prayer position at chest level.
Then swivel your hands so that your fingertips point toward opposite elbows, with your right palm facing your heart.
Bend your fingers and slide your hands across each other until your fingers lock. Keep the shoulders softening down the ribs at the back and the spine growing toward the sky. Repeat on the other side. This can be done sitting (on the floor or a chair) or standing. Take a few breathes in each Mudra.
Benefits of Ganesha Mudra are: to lift your spirits, boost your confidence and to relieve stress and tension.
It is named after the Hindu deity who removes obstacles!
