We ask a lot of our hands and wrists in yoga; yet bearing the body’s weight on these delicate and intertwining ligaments, tissues and bones is part of the idea of building strength and finding balance.
Wrist pain in yoga is one of the most common afflictions among practitioners, from the brand new beginner to the most experienced. For some, strain on the wrists is the result of long, sedentary hours at the computer; others have problems as a result of a previous injury, or from overuse. Whatever the cause, even the slightest twinge in the wrists or hands can be distracting and painful while trying to hold a pose, or while flowing in a yoga practice. Not to mention, lingering sore wrists from yoga practice can last days and interferer with activities of daily living. Fortunately, a careful and gradual approach to increasing wrist flexibility and strength with the help of cushioning and support can help most students avoid problems.
Enter YogaJellies, the comfortable and easy solution to for wrist and hand comfort and cushioning. These little flexible discs also prevent the hands slipping on yoga mat to help with stability. Place YogaJellies under your hands for the most demanding poses requiring weight-bearing or extra extension that may bring about a problem. See below for specific photos of YogaJellies used for your favorite (or most fearful) yoga poses. Unlike other yoga props that can affect your center of gravity or shift the body’s alignment, YogaJellies offer just enough support and cushion to allow for poses that are natural and advantageous to your practice.
Those of us with more serious wrist and problems, such as chronic arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, previous fracture or surgery sites that are still bothersome, can also use YogaJellies to help us along in our practice, but should always consult a health care provider before beginning any such activity.
