Hands and wrists ache in cat/cow and downward dog? Try these strengthening alignment cues
≤30 min. When hands are part of your foundation in yoga poses, take the time to learn how to establish good alignment in your hands and wrists so that your arms and shoulders can bear more weight. You’ll be able to refine downward dog (adho mukha svanasana), plank (palankasana), handstand (adho mukha vrksasana) longer without stressing the hands and wrists. Try these variations to increase your strength and stability.
