how to avoid wrist pain in yoga

as a yoga instructor i hear this question frequently, especially from newer practitioners. because yoga can be difficult on the wrists if you haven't learnt how to use your hands properly. even for us seasoned yogi, these reminders are great.
if you've been spending any time in yoga studios, you've surely heard some of the following words... 

"press down firmly with the L of your thumbs & index fingers"

"lightly grip the mat with the pads of your finger tips"

"take weight out of the heel of your hands"

"lift the inner palm"

but like all poses or movements, sometimes words are hard to follow. most of us have a slightly different meaning of what we hear or say and some of us just don't respond well to audible instructions. so when i saw this info-graphic on elephantjournal.com by way of yogabycandace.com i just had to share it. Candace does a great job of visually explaining how to place every aspect of your hands when using them to support any yoga posture.

Avani sandbag

I love my new Avani sandbag. It is especially great for adding traction on my sacrum in child’s pose.

LOVE 'EM!! I find that I can get into my 'zen' space quicker when I'm not fidgeting to get my knees, back and hands 'just so'. Breathing is deeper; relaxation is quicker and body feels great! Thank you for these products.

My bolster has not yet arrived.

Hi Susan,
I'm sorry to hear your bolster hasn't arrived yet. Shipping from Canada to the US has been taking longer than expected due to Covid. If you don't receive it within a week - please reach out and we'll see what we can do.
