Yoga and the Art of Mudras
Yoga and the Art of Mudras is a guided journey into the alchemy of asana (yoga pose) and mudra (symbolic hand gesture). Brazilian-born yogini, dancer, and author Nubia Teixeira has been practicing and teaching traditional yoga and classical Indian Odissi dance for over twenty-six years. In this book, she fuses her passion for yoga and dance with her love for bhakti (devotion). In so doing, she has created a unique and contemporary yoga system that encompasses all three healing arts.

Transform your practice into an embodied devotional yogic experience
Brazilian-born yogini, dancer, and author Nubia Teixeira has been practicing and teaching traditional yoga and classical Indian Odissi dance for almost 30 years.
In this book, she fuses her passion for yoga and dance with her love for bhakti (devotion). In so doing, she has created a unique, original, and contemporary yoga system that encompasses all three healing arts.
Through beautiful photographs of each yoga pose, Nubia guides the reader in a meaningful union of hand gestures with asanas. Drawing, in particular, on expressions and hand gestures found in Indian dance, these newly developed poses will help transform a person’s hatha yoga practice into an embodied devotional and artistic yogic experience.
Nubia’s yoga-mudra system combines expressions that are deeply rooted in the heart of traditional yoga, classical Indian Odissi dance, and inspirational bhakti yoga storytelling. Honoring the gifts of all three systems, Nubia Teixeira shares a beautiful and truly original voyage into the heart of devotional yoga practice.
Bringing Yoga and the Art of Mudras to life!
January 6 - February 27, 2021
Join me for my online Devotional Yoga course! I have gathered many gems of embodied Bhakti that I will be sharing via several “yogasana flows” that are infused with sacredness and devotion. These compositions are part of my Bhakti Nova School of Yoga, and many of the poses are included in my book “Yoga and the Art of Mudras.” You will practice them (and learn how to teach if you wish) by flowing from stationary pose to stationary pose in a choreography-like sequence.
What people are saying...
“Just as we use our voices to chant the sacred name, so we can use our hands to deepen our meditation in the form of these sacred mudras. Nubia is our guide on a beautiful journey into this ancient wisdom. She shares with grace, wisdom, knowledge and passion – such a blessing!”
~ Deva Premal, Musician and Meditative Mantra Muse
"The hands are extensions of the heart, reflecting what is in your heart. Mudras tell stories with the hands. Nubia’s hands express the celestial stories and songs of her innermost heart—the eternal abode of Divine Love where God and the soul dance in ecstatic delight. Nubia is an other-worldly apsara who has taken birth amongst us mortals—to show us the keys to the heart of heaven and how to open the secret door. This is an incredibly important book.”
