“Yoga for the hands—sounds too good to be true. Do it at the office, on an airplane, lying in bed. Seasoned yoga teacher Gertrud Hirschi has used these hand postures to ease asthma, relieve flu symptoms, think more effectively, relieve tension, and more. Like a classroom instructor, she guides readers with simultaneous breathing advice and conjures up helpful images.” —Brian Bruya, Amazon.com Review
