Wrist Stretch for people who use Trekking Poles

I end most of my Yoga classes with this gentle and effective wrist stretch.    This  subtle movement lengthens and “tractions” the joint.  The radius and ulna bones in the healthy forearm articulate.   Creating  s p a c e  in the wrist joint and lengthening the space in the forearm enable better articulation and function.  Keep in mind:

  • Less is more.
  • Purposely work shorter/smaller than your brain wants to.
  • Forget about the Destination – Focus on the Journey.
  • Invest the time to feel the subtlety of this movement.
  • BREATHE!
  • Allow this movement to bring mindfulness to your hand, wrist & forearm.
  • Learn it so that you can use it when you need it – a tool for your body tool box 🙂

A good friend and I filmed this one morning so we  could share it with AdventureBuddies!  After a long day at the computer or after a rigorous hike, try this and relieve tension/tightness/stress in the wrist joint.

Be loving and gentle with yourself 🙂   Try it and let me know what you think?
