Yoga Exercise - Wrist Bending

Many physical activities that we encounter everyday almost always involve the wrists. They will not hurt if we perform a little exercise to loosen up one of the most used parts of our body. The Wrist Bending Yoga Exercise will improve the range of motion of your wrists through stretching and bending, thus, avoiding Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis.

  1. Sit comfortably on the floor or Yoga Mat.
  2. At shoulder height and parallel to the floor, straighten your hand in front of you.
  3. Turn your palm down and extend your fingers and thumb forward and close together.
  4. Inhale as you bend your hand at the wrist backward as if you are pressing hard against an object.
  5. Then, exhale as you bend your hand down at the wrist. You should feel a light pull all the way to your forearm.
  6. Repeat this exercise eight times, then do it with your other hand. After some practice, you will be able to exercise both hands at the same time.

Remember to inhale during the backward movement and exhale during the forward movement. A careful and correct practice of the exercise will surely increase the flexibility and strength of the wrists. Once you get into the habit of doing this exercise, you can avoid certain complications and will realize that you can now put more weight on them.
