Avoid pain in the wrists - anatomical insights

In this talk José offers anatomical information about the wrists and explains how you can avoid injuring them during your yoga practice. You will see that besides tension, the shape of your bones (wrist, radius and ulna) also determines the range of movement you have in your wrist joint. Feeling sharp, stinging sensations in your wrists during yoga can be injurious in the long term. Examples of poses which put strain on the wrists include Chaturanga Dandasasana, Vasisthasana (Side Plank), Urdhva Mukha Svanasana (Upward Facing Dog) or Seal, Adho Mukha Vrkasana (Handstand), Urdhva Dhanurasana (Wheel), Camatkarasana (Wild Thing), Purvottanasana (Upward Plank), Bakasana (Crow). José explains how you can avoid injuring your wrists whilst practicing these poses and gives you a more general insight into how to practice yoga safely.
