HOW TO STRENGTHEN WRISTS FOR YOGA

How to strengthen wrists for yoga you ask? Oh darling, look no further because I can tell you exactly what to do to help your sore wrists. Having soreness in your wrists can be such a bother. It can become so annoying that it stops you from doing yoga all together.

The biggest reason why we have sore wrists is because we are sinking joints into their sockets which sends our weight and pressure into our wrist joint. Then we feel pain and then we are sad. In other words we are lacking strength and correct technique.

Let please avoid that pain. I think any pain we can effectively avoid needs to be avoided. Wrist soreness is not necessary to our yoga practice.
