A little detail of the yoga breathing patterns and exercises that benefited Devi and its rationale in yogic terms, will not be out of place in its elaboration here. Our body that have been injured or neglected.


Yoga asana-s involve movements, (bending, stretching, rotating), that stimulate ‘injured’ parts of the body by increasing the blood supply, followed by phases of total relaxation, savasana, between movement phases.

Padahasthasana involves a set of asana-s with stretching and touching toes standing and in a seated position, with outstretched lower limbs. Thadasana, is standing upright ‘like a mountain’, stretching backward and bending forward to touch toes on the same side; Trikonasana: standing and bending diagonally to touch toes on the opposite side; repeating stretches in the seated position-paschimottanasanas –seated and bending forward to touch toes; also bending diagonally to touch toes on opposite feet, alternately.

Breath is the essence of prana –the ‘life force’. Pranayama, alternative nostril breathing in padmasana meditative seated posture, seeks to harness this prana. By focusing the mind totally on the rhythmic breathing, the body channels are opened, allowing energy to flow freely and connect with the life force. ( In modern scientific terms, the role of the autonomic nervous system in this breathing pattern has been recognized, with increase in sympathetic inputs).

As a result, concentration and clarity of thought develops. Prana provides the strength, power and vitality required to carry out higher level activity. Attentive awareness of the breath can gently lead the aspirant to the art of meditation.

Chinmudra– is hand gesture with opposition of the thumb and index finger bilaterally and the other fingers are outstretched and facing upwards. Chinmudra in yogic meditative posture enhances ekagrhachittam – one-pointed concentration of the mind during meditation. When the finger touches the thumb a circuit is established, which allows the energy that would normally dissipate into the environment, to travel back into the body. When the fingers and hands are placed on the knees , in the meditative seated posture, the knees are sensitized, creating another pranic circuit that maintains and redirects prana within the body. As the palms face upwards in chinmudra, the chest and heart area are opened up as well.
