I'm Tanya Eberhardt, and this is how to keep wrists from hurting during yoga. Since a lot of yoga poses are inverted and on your wrists like downward facing dog. A lot of pressure is placed on your wrist joints. However by learning which muscles to activate in your hands and how to stretch the muscles in your forearms you can learn how to keep your wrists from hurting during yoga. Come to a downward facing dog. Now the tendency in downward facing dog is to distribute the weight to the outside back portion of your hand and into the wrist joint. As you can see here. To redistribute the weight into your hand and out of your wrist joint press the palm down. As particular focus at the point that the thumb and the index meet. So here you can see this is the tendency. And to redistribute the weight I'm going to press the palms and that point down into the floor. Now by doing that I'm going to require a lot more of my forearm muscles. To stretch the forearms bring the right arm underneath the left. Flip the thumbs down and clasp your fingers. Bring the hands through. And you want to extend the wrist, you get a deep stretch on the left forearm. To stretch the other side flip the cross of the arms. Clasp the fingers and again bring the hands through. Extending the wrist, extending your elbows. Now for some you might be here but over time you'll open up the forearms.
