Hand and Wrist Strengthening Exercises

Another one of my yoga students asked me, what to do for pain in his wrists?

ACTION STEP: Set your timer until your next 5-minute work break. When the timer goes off, try these exercises. In the video, I just show you how to do it, so when you do it alone, try to build up by first doing 5 of each and then increasing by 1 every time. That means, start with 5 of each, then 6 of each, then 7 of each. Do this every day for one week, and let me know if you notice any difference.

Any other questions about yoga, meditation, or healthy living running through your head all day? Let me know and I’ll answer you in next Thursday’s Q and A.
