Yoga for fingers hands and wrist care
As with all movement practices, this Yoga for fingers hands and wrist care class starts with a mobility warm-up. So we’ll begin with fists and stars. Exactly what it sounds like make fists, then spread the fingers wide into stars.
The second exercise will be finger piano. From the star, connect the index finger and thumb. Release and touch the middle finger and thumb. Release and repeat with all the fingers going through a few repetitions. My favorite exercise is one I call Sock puppet. Imagine you have sock puppets that are trying to eat the inside of your elbows! Chomp chomp, fun and a great stretch for the top of the wrists!
Next up is some TLC, which in this Yoga for fingers hands and wrist care class is thumb love and care. With the hand supported massage the meaty thumb pad with the opposite thumb.
For the fifth exercise we do finger pulls. Which I offer the visual of pulling off rings from your fingers. A little wiggle and pull action. Finally we end with a stretch, extending the fingers back from the knuckle (rather than the fingertips!). End with the stars, fists and a shake before grounding to round out our practice.
