if you use your hands-do wrist circles and hand stretches to ease the buildup of muscle tension. A regular yoga practice will also help keep hands lithe, limber, and strong. Similarly, we abuse our feet terribly with high heels, narrow shoes, and high-impact aerobic exercise. Strong, flexible, healthy, pain-free feet are the foundation of good posture and a mobile, independent life as you age. Feet can also be quite beautiful and expressive. Nothing keeps feet healthier and happier than a regular yoga practice, going barefoot at home or while walking on soft grass or a sandy beach, and wearing comfortable, supportive footwear. A regular soaking in an aromatic footbath followed by a foot massage doesn't hurt, either, and is a good quick alternative to a full body bath and massage.

As a nighttime beauty treatment, apply a generous amount of Creamy Moisturizer (see page ) or combine one tablespoon sesame oil, one tablespoon plain yogurt, one egg yolk, and one teaspoon of honey and apply to hands. Wear cotton gloves overnight to improve penetration and avoid soiling your sheets.

Therapeutic Footbath

I recommend soaking your feet in water mixed with a quarter cup of the follow herbal decoction or 3 drops of essential oils for a footbath. If your kapha dosha needs invigorating, I recommend you use warm water with ginger powder one half teasponn water.

If you are prone to calluses, use a pumice stone to rub away dead skin daily, while skin is soft from the footbath.
