May you find yourself in the world…and may you enjoy the company!
I have tendonitis and downward dog irritates it. I know my wrists will heal with the practice, but for now, is there anything I can do to lighten the strain on my wrists?.
As I said on my introductory post, I am disabled and today has been the first day I have been able to do yoga, granted I did 5 minutes and was exhausted. I know the yoga I practice (Ashtanga) is intense and challenging, but is the yoga I want to practice and be good at. So, do you have any advice for me with my wrists?
Once again, thank you so much for welcoming me! Wave2
Thank you Sincerely

I have information from a certified Kinesiologist (dealing with various muscle and ligament injuries) that yoga aggrevates many injuries, and he recommends no yoga until all tendons and ligaments are healed.
If he is right or wrong I don't know, but I would look into it further before you do any yoga that does not feel right to certain parts of the body.

Hi Alessandra,
I don't know much about this, wish I could offer you advise. I would check with your doctor. I have severe neck problems and they tell me that any exercise I can do, even if it's 5 minutes will help, but it hurts like heck sometimes.Have you discussed this with your doctor?
I'm holding you in my heart and prayers,
Sending love,
