The Soft Under Side of Wrist Pain

Do your wrists hurt in downward facing dog pose? Or upward facing dog pose?

It may be that there's something that's come between you and the solid ground beneath you.

If you practice on thickly padded carpeting you'll notice that when you push into the floor with your hands you don't get that rebound effect that literally lifts the forearm up out of the wrist joint. Instead, you get a squishy, sinking feeling that causes the wrist to collapse and compress.

One solution to your wrist pain might be to start practicing on a firm floor, one that doesn't 'give.'

You'll notice, too, that when you get off the padded carpet for your regular asana routine, your balance will improve in your standing poses and your inversions!

Save the padded carpet for savasana.

If you'd like to know more about the rebound effect, see my Daily Yoga Tip at

Wrist pain can also be helped with a simple change in how you arrange your fingers. See my Daily Yoga Tip about wrist pain at

Don't just read about it. Get up. Experience it. Experience yoga!

Nice blog, cool tip. I am suffering from wrist pain for some time now.roughly 4 weeks. Am not sure if its due to yoga or me working on comp for long. But it hurts like I cant bear it at times when I turn it in a particular manner! I've tried the fingers stretching and going to keep it at till it gets better..thankyou.

Recognized as one of the finest Yoga retreats in the world, sivanandabahamas is dedicated to promoting the authentic spiritual tradition of Yoga, in an environment normally associated with an exclusive star hotel. We endeavour to embody the spiritual tradition of Athithi devo Bhava (serving the Guest as an embodiment of the Divine) and the staff at sivanandabahamas are trying to practice all facets of Yoga in their daily lives. At sivanandabahamas, you get a unique insight into Yoga, irrespective of whether you are a beginner or have practiced for many years.

sivanandabahamas is situated in bahamas where the emphasis is to live an ashram style life (daily yoga, meditation sessions, chanting classes, organic vegetarian food, no alcohol, community service, farming etc.) in private, serene and "simply" luxurious accommodation and facilities. In a typical Yoga Retreat, guests practice different facets of Yoga - for physical strength, balance and flexibility, for physiological & therapeutic benefits and if they are interested, for pursuing a spiritual path through various types of meditation.
