I practice a large amount of vinyasa which is all pushing with the hands. And often poses have the wrists cocked backward, palmar extension, dorsiflexion. Which is not really what our hands and wrists are designed to do. I don't know of any effective counter poses for this, Padahastasana maybe, but that isn't much.
Sometime ago I started chin-ups or pull-ups for this. But I realized that I like simple hanging even better. And soon started to notice some changes. The article below was recently published it covers the benefits more than I was aware.
From Specialists to Humans:
It seems to me like this is a Yin pose. The whole body is brought into traction, particularly the spine, except for the neck. Even the hands, wrists and forearms which are used strongly here have aspects which are Yin.
It seems to me like a great idea. It fills in a part that may be missing from yoga. I am thinking this may also be helpful for a long list of common chronic injuries.
Any ideas or comments? Anybody else do this?
