Awake & Evolve: Cycle 1 - Yoga for Your Hands and Wrists
Basic Shoulder Opener with Hand and Wrist Stretch
In a seated pose, begin to take your hands behind your back and clasp them together. Inhale as you lengthen through the spine and exhale as you feel a deep opening through the shoulders and wrists. Stay in the pose for 10-15 deep breaths. Reverse the position of the hands and stay for another 10-15 deep breaths.
Deep Wrist Opener
In a seated pose on your knees, begin to gently place the hands on the floor palms facing up for a deep wrist opener. Be mindful not to create too much pressure in the wrists, keeping more weight in the legs and out of the hands when necessary. Stay here for 10-15 deep breaths. Reverse the position of the hands and stay for another 10-15 deep breaths.
Hands Under Feet Pose
From a standing pose, bend forward and reach down to place your hands under your feet. Now slide your entire hand and fingers under your feet, as you use your toes to press against the palms of your hands. Stay here for 10-15 deep breaths.
