Is there any mudra for healing or will narasimha mudra help as it is very difficult to move her entire back and she is bed ridden. Thanks in advance.

I am not clear about healing benefits of Narasimha mudra so I cannot comment on it. I would recommend Prithvi mudra and Akash mudra for osteoporosis. These can be practiced for 10 minutes each for multiple times in a day. I am not recommending higher duration as your mother will find it difficult to hold these mudras for long.

Regular massage with sesame oil with light hand on the back will be beneficial for her. Let the oil stay for an hour. Wipe with hot wet towel thereafter. Once she is finished with her dosage of Terifrac injection, start giving her Calcarea Phosphorica 6x as remedy for long term. Her diet should have less salt and sugar as both of these leach calcium from the bones.

Wish her speedy recovery.

I have this problem since childhood when I choked, and it remained to this day, sometimes less sometimes more expressed, and because of that have a variety of other social phobias mostly. Which mudras, yoga positions and breathing techniques you recommend for fear of swallowing? Thanks a lot!!!

You must practice Shankh Mudra (Conch Mudra) for 10 minutes each in the morning and evening. The instructions are provided in the link. The other practice that is highly recommended for you is Simha Mudra. As the description of it is not available on this blog, I am referring a video on YouTube which will help you learn it (Video link). Simha mudra will remove all the psychological barriers. Simha means lion. Visualize yourself as one and gradually all your fears will dissipate.

Closing your eyes

My guru always reminded the students to close their eyes while practicing the yoga pose. The beginners were given some leeway for first month as they needed some visual guidance by looking at advanced students.

The ritual of closing the eyes brings depth and perfection in your practice. The benefits that you can derive are listed

  1. Closing the eyes immediately shifts the focus from outside to inside
  2. As you progress, you start noticing small misalignments in the joints giving you opportunity to adjust them for a balanced pose. These misalignments are observed around wrists, elbows, shoulders, neck, claves, gluteus and thoracic vertebrae. Adjusting your posture helps in preventing injuries and inflammation.
  3. You are able to maintain the weight equally on the feet and torso aligned at correct angle to the floor; which remains elusive with open eyes.
  4. Closing the eyes saves energy. Eyes are the biggest source of energy dissipation. Closing them helps in using the energy for breath and stance awareness.
  5. Closing the eyes also helps in sustaining the pose for longer duration.

Wrist pain is a common complaint in yoga class - here’s how to avoid it.

can any yoga instructors vouch for this information? I was always told to press my fingers into the floor and spread my fingers apart…

I had no prior knowledge of this condition. I researched extensively upon your query and found a link that may be useful for your father’s condition

The content of this page is about a person who cured herself by potassium supplementation. Even, in homeopathic treatment, the  doctor might have given potassium based tincture or tissue salt.
