Three easy ways to care for your wrists in yoga


Wrist-poses-to-help-with-painWhen I asked beginner yogis what their biggest obstacle to learning yoga was, a lot of people responded with trouble with their wrists. Today I am going to share with you three ways to care for your wrists in yoga.

1. warm them up

Before doing a pose where your wrists are in a flexed position such as plank pose or even cat pose. Take a few moments to warm your wrists up.

(Make a fist and circle your wrists in both directions)

2. stretch them

After you do a yoga pose where your wrists are in a flexed position such as plank pose or even cat pose take a moment to stretch them.

(Flex the wrist and stretch it with your opposite palm)

3. rest them

Take time after yoga poses where your wrists are in a flexed position such as plank poses or even cat pose to take a counter pose and rest.

I highly recommend the following value added classes from our membership site for your wrists as well.

The Hand and Wrist Class from the Head and Shoulders, Knees and Toes series from the Membership Site.
