Today I’m sharing some of my favorite wrist free yoga videos on YouTube.
I’ve been practicing yoga at home mostly for the last few years. I’ve been going to more classes since I decided to start yoga teacher training this fall, but I still practice at home.
My go to when I’m at home is to do part of the Ashtanga primary series. When you go to an ashtanga class, you’ll go through the same poses in the same order every single time, no matter if you’re in India, London, or New York. Part of what I like about it is that it’s the same every single time. I makes it more meditative for me.
Ashtanga yoga has a lot of sun salutations in it, which means using my wrists a lot. That’s perfectly fine when my wrists are feeling good, but my wrists sometimes like to act up. Putting pressure on my wrists when they’re bent can be pretty painful when they’re not feeling good, and they’ll continue to hurt for a week or so. Not much fun.
If I decide to do something different than ashtanga, I usually go to YouTube to find a video to follow along with. I don’t know why it didn’t occur to me to look for videos that don’t involve using wrists. For some reason it just hasn’t. For the last month or so I’ve been making my way through some wrist free yoga videos on YouTube. Today I thought I’d share some of my favorite ones.
This no wrist yoga class is perfect for avoiding putting pressure on my wrists. Yoga by Candace has a ton of great videos on YouTube, if you happen to be looking for yoga videos in general. She also writes a great blog tha t you can check out here.
This quick 30 minute flow is the perfect length to fit in some yoga after work. Kassandra is great at cuing, I can do the class with hardly having to look at the screen. I’ve done some of her other videos too and really liked them as well.
That title is a mouthful, but the actual yoga is great. If I remember correctly, this video does involve using the wrists a little bit, but it was totally doable for me. Maris has a ton of yoga videos that she’s posted, so even if you don’t need a hands free yoga practice, I think you’ll be able to find something for you.
If you live somewhere cold and snowy, be sure to check out this yoga video. Erin does this video on the beach! One of these days I’m going to have the opportunity to do yoga on a beach. Erin has nearly 90,000 subscribers on YouTube and a ton of yoga videos so you’ll be able to find some yoga that suits you.
