Barathanatyam and yoga are the two divine art forms originated in Indian. One is single hand gestures and the other is double hand gestures. Single hand gestures are generally called Aasamuthahasthas and the double hand gestures are called Samuthahasthas. Like Bharatha Natya certain hand gestures are also used in Yoga. In Yoga, some of the Asanas are associated with specific body postures with hand gestures.
