When we work with our hands in yoga, the instruction to spread the skin on the palms is often given. Hands are usually addressed with the air element. We reach them up into space. Spreading the finger webbing helps us to feel our hands become aware of the skin on the palms. We learn where our skin is contracted and tight and where the skin is loose or bunched. Where is the skin thick, where is it thin. Once we become aware of how our palms feel, we learn to spread and press the palms into the ground. We work with the earth element. Isn’t it interesting how we begin with the feet on the earth and later work with the feet in air?
