There are twenty-eight asamyutha (one-handed) gestures and twenty-three samyutha (two-handed) gestures, each of which have meanings depending on the context.This video by the Laya Bhava Dance Academy demonstrates and names the asamyutha hastas. This bharathanatyam school was established in 1986 by Artistic Director Kirupanithy Ratneswaran, and has locations in Markham, Scarborough and Toronto.
