You can still do a challenging yoga class without putting pressure on your wrists! This practice is ideal for those who have shoulder and/or wrist injuries. Recommended props: 2 blocks, 1 blanket
Great class for when wrists or shoulders need a rest!
Recently I injured my shoulder, and this class was absolutely wonderful inspiration to keep up my practice while I was healing. Thank you, David! This was very considerate. It would be so fabulous if there were more classes catering to injuries like this, and it was an option to filter for on the "find a class" page.
Really bummed because I broke my wrist and my practice has suffered. Please fix.
I have wrist pain and cannot bare weight on them. I’ve missed going into the studio for my asana practice and didn’t know what to do. Today, l remembered that I received a subscription to My YogaWorks for Christmas.
I searched for a class that I could manage pain-free and found this one. It was perfect for me. Many thanks!
There was too much talking between poses for me. I didn't mind it the first time but it felt like I was waiting often by the 3rd time I watched it.
I, too, have a shoulder injury and am not able to go through vinyasa (or really bear any weight on my shoulders), so this class is great! I appreciate the core work that doesn't rely on plank pose, and the transitions are thoughtful and challenging (stepping back into crescent, etc). Thanks so much!
For a level 2 class, there's way too much talking. I feel I spent more time waiting for the pose than in a pose because of over-explanation. This should be a level 1 class.
Brilliant class!! Thank you David! I'm looking forward to meet you this November in Athens. :) :)
Fantastic class, I loved it, it was challenging while kind and considerate, I'd love more along these lines. Thank you David!
I've recently had a shoulder injury and this class is a godsend. Add this to the fact that I do not like sun salutations and this class scores a ten!
Loved everything! The sequencing, the explanations the tone of the voice and the flow! this is super useful for those who want to get a good workout without putting strain on the wrists. THANK YOU!
Very nice class. Simple, and direct, with just enough challenge. . Thank you SO much! This will be my go-to class while my wrist recovers, and beyond.
David does an awesome job explaining the reasons why we should be holding the poses in particular ways rather than simply parroting the cues we hear so often in class. Thank you so much for these clear explanations as well as crafting such a great sequence with injury in mind.
I deal with alot of wrist and elbow pain due to carpel tunnel syndrome. Hard to find a class without alot of vinyasas that strain those areas! I LOVE this class . It gave me the workout I long for without the wrist pain!
Thank you so much for this class that allows me to practice despite a wrist contusion. I can complete my 30-days yoga challenge despite the injury. Namaste!
Timely and so needed, I slipped on the ice and hurt my wrist,truly aggravated by Down Dog been using this teaching in my classes for the past week, sure works for me and they love it!!!!!!!!!!!! Namaste!
This is an awesome class! I have tennis elbow, and this is the only class that addresses any type of injury and modifies accordingly. I wish there was a series that catered to people with osteoporosis or inflammation of the joints. We are the ones that need yoga the most, but cant do the flow sequences which are so ubiquitous in this program. Thank you so very much!
So happy to have a longer sequence that doesnt require putting a lot of weight on my hands :)! Perfect for when youre trying to rest your wrists, elbows, and/ or shoulders!
Great class, clear instruction, challenging, but do-able. Thank you
I have a shoulder injury and this practice is a godsend. With a couple of modifications I am finally able to do a full length practice. Thank you !!
This sequence focuses on neutrally rotated standing and seated poses. This video is a part of our Journey Series to Firefly Pose.
