Getting the Upper Hand on Downward Dog 3

Kate Heffernan

Session 3: Many people struggle with wrist pain or arm alignment in downward dog. In this session, we stretch and strengthen the arms and wrists to create a strong foundation for downward facing dog. Asanas include supine Savasana with a block between the hands, flexion work, cat-cow, child’s pose with downward facing dog arms and actions, and concludes with rising to all fours. The class will include a talk about hands and wrist creases.
