Save your wrists from injury with these Yoga modifications 👆🏽 This will ensure you can keep practising for the rest of your life.
1. Make sure you don't arch your back. Lead with your CHEST instead of your torso. 👉🏼 In building strength for full chaturanga you must think of your hips to shoulders as one complete unit that must all move together!!! When you arch your back and don't lower all together you can injure your lower back and you will never build strength! 🙏🏼
2. Don't put your hands too far forward so that your shoulders don't end up next to your ears. Make sure your wrists are UNDER your shoulders, making a nice 90 degree angle and your shoulders stay down and pulled backwards. If your hands are too far forward you could severely hurt your wrists!
3. DO NOT cross your legs ❌ crossing your legs in this modified push-up position could result in an unbalanced pelvis, making core activation nearly impossible!!! Make sure legs are parallel or glued together.
