Pain in wrists is often the result of Facebook obsession and spending too much time on the computer. And because we are either on our phone or computer all day, it is an injury that is difficult to avoid. A few of these yoga poses recommended by yoga expert Sunaina Rekhi can help you strengthen your wrists.
Gomukhasana or cow face pose: When you interlock your hands behind you, you stretch and strengthen your wrists while relaxing your pinched nerves. Hold the asana for five to ten breaths and repeat on both sides.
Bhujangasana or cobra pose: This asana strengthens your wrists without placing excessive body pressure on it. It also strengthens your arms shoulders and spine. Stay in the asana for 8-10 breaths and then relax.
Kumbhakasana or plank pose: This asana strengthens not only your wrists but also your hands and shoulders. Maintain the pose for 8-10 seconds.
Garudasana or eagle pose: This asana involves interlocking your hands, there by stretching your wrists and relaxing your pinched nerves. Try and hold the pose for as long as you can and then relax.
Dandasana or staff pose: This is a very relaxing asana that also stretches and strengthens your wrists and fingers. Make sure that you focus on your breath when you hold the asana.
