Wrist & Shoulder Care

Our hands are vital tools. We use them for basic survival, recreation, communication, and creative expression. An injury in the hand or wrist can be debilitating. Because many of our interactions with modern conveniences involve repetitive movements—such as typing, texting, or mousing—one of the most prevalent types of wrist ailment today is a repetitive strain/stress injury, or RSI. Many common wrist conditions,
such as carpel tunnel syndrome and tendinitis of the wrist, fall under this category.

Proper alignment of the hands and balanced muscle tone in the forearms can protect vulnerable wrists. If the wrists are weak or injured, they need to be progressively stretched and strengthened with a series of exercises and positions.

In this mini workshop we will support our daily activities in a less stressful and harmful manner. We will observe and engage in new patterns that are healthier and more conscious. Specifically, yoga can assist with healing RSI in the wrists by working on alignment in the upper body, so that the larger muscles in this region can better support and guide movements of the elbows, wrists, and hands.
