Hand Muscles Cue
Do you think about your hand muscles? No? You should. Do you ever experience wrist irritation or even pain? Then you most definitely should be developing the muscles in your hands. Hasta Bandha isn’t discussed enough. Shit, I didn’t even know what it was until several years into my teaching experience. I didn’t study it while in teacher training. But you better believe I utilize it now.
Study this, and practice it constantly until it feels natural.
Cue: Practice ahimsa by taking the weight out of your wrists and transitioning it primarily into your finger beds and lumbrical muscles (where your fingers end and your palm begins).
Trust me on this shit.
