YogaFit Egg Pose Of The Month - January 2014
Director of YogaFit Canada, Senior Master Trainer, and Presenter
Anyone with issues in their wrists (whether carpal tunnel or general pain) can benefit from this option for their Downward Dog. To get into the pose, start from all 4's with the crease of your wrist against the short edge of the egg, fingers spread out of the floor and then gently lifting through your sits bones to find an inverted V. Keeping the knees soft, we are allowing our forearms to be supported by the eggs, as the eggs gently tilt forward moulding to the shape of your arms. By taking the weight out of the hands and lessening the crease at the wrists, less discomfort is felt and all the strengthening and stretching benefits of Downward Dog can be experienced.
