Do you spend hours working at a computer, iPad or phone? Have you ever experienced wrist or hand pain or strain? Our poor hands, wrist and fingers work so hard. Sometimes its important to give them some love, attention and Yoga too!
From the moment we are born we begin to grasp with our hands and figure out all the most intricate tasks that we can perform. The hands are truly amazing! When you look at children's hands you will see how flexible they are. They can bend their fingers all the way back but as we get older this flexibility may reduce. Keeping our bodies open and flexible throughout our lives can help us balance the forward moving and technology crazed society we live in.
So this week we have a simple and short video that you can follow along with to refresh your poor typing and texting fingers. Here is our mini Hand Workout, all in less than 2 minutes!
Until Next time.. Have a beautiful week.
