The Many Benefits of Hand Yoga
Heidi worked in an office that was mainly ladies, in her department at least. The ladies talk about their exercises and what they do, and one day a few of the ladies were talking about hand yoga. Heidi had never heard about this before and was curious as to what it was and what it could do for her. She asked a few of the ladies and they told her a little about it.
She did some research on it and found that it began many years ago and was a part of Buddhist meditation. It is now seen all over the world and many people are getting many benefits from it. She began to check out classes and was new to it all, so did not really understand what she could do for her.
