Wrist Traction

September 8, 2015 — 1

My third video for hands, wrists and forearms:

This is a personal therapeutic I use to stop the build-up of pressure in my wrist joints. It’s quick, simple and feels great. (Not only has it kept me charging hard on my mountain bike, it helps me recover quickly from handstands).

Whether you are a seasoned practitioner exploring arm balances, or a relative newbie getting used to downward dog, the loads in our wrist joints are impressive. Considering how much time we spend typing, along with our favourite sports/hobbies, it’s easy to overuse the wrists and get them inflamed. Not good!

Please give it a shot, and let me know what you think! Also, if you have friends who are dealing with wrist issues such as carpal tunnel syndrome, please share this video: it could provide them with some much needed relief.

Stay healthy,

jeff

Moving onward - exploring wrists and forearm tightness.

The second instalment in a series of hand, wrist and forearm openings!

Here is a sequence I employ for eloquent hands, nimble wrists and supple forearms. Chances are your athletic, artistic, and work pursuits have been challenging these parts of your body, so let’s give them some much needed love and awareness.

If this resonates with you, please share with your friends so that they too can stay injury free!

Cheers,

Over the years, I’ve been blessed to have illuminating conversations with incredible yogis and have always wanted to record them. With the mighty Amy Ippoliti coming to the Lounge this Sept 10-12, 2015, the time was right for capturing insights.

An incredibly generous and candid interviewee, some of Amy’s gems in our talk include:

  • What it’s like to practice yoga underwater with whale sharks(!)
