Hello amazing people! Often times I have yoga students tell me they experience wrist pain during their practice or even during daily life. The world has changed and our wrists are fighting back. Typing and sitting at a computer all day, constantly being on our cell phones, repetitious wrist movement; these are all contributing factors but, what can we do.
WRIST YOGA! 🙂 Yes, it is a thing. Stop and take just a moment to show your wrists some love and give them a break. Stretch them gently, and feel the benefits over time, it may be what saves you from developing issues such as, carpal tunnel.
Besides taking a moment to stretch our wrists, there are also alternatives to try during your yoga practice instead of putting all your weight onto them. The alternatives vary pertaining to posture and flexibility but, are great to test out if you ever find it effecting your practice.
Below is a short video breaking down the different wrists stretches as well as, the alternatives to try during your next practice. Please give them a try, and remember, our body needs love and gratitude, every little piece of it. 🙂
