      Need to know how to generate strength in my arms. Because When i tried practicing before an arm balancing pose i had ended up injuring the back side of my hand internally plus the wrist of my other hand.!! so when now i try doing crow pose or its variations,Eka Pada Koundiyanasana,Astavakrasana (Eight-Angle Pose) or the wheel pose etc. my hands hurt moreover i cant gather that much strength for it. Been doing yoga since past two years!! Other than the wheel pose,chaturanga, handstand,plank pose,Camatkarasana,Purvottanasana,Vasisthasana all the other arm balancing poses were new to me as i had tried them for the first time.

      • maybe you have weakness in your shoulders and core. When those are strong it takes away the weight on your hands. Train your m.serratus anterior for example (there are lots of short exercises on youtube).

        • Hi Divya, my first recommendation is develop awareness of scapular engagement (shoulder blade) - this means learning to utilize the serratus anterior along with synergists like the rhomboids/trapezius muscles ... the serratus anterior is your power center for arm balances - without proper engagement, there is often an energy collapse through the kinetic chain right into the hands ... Jesse Enright offers some great videos in the workshop section on hand placement and shoulder engagement. I have sensitive wrists as well - I have come to appreciate that within my practice, I need to provide 'rest breaks' for my wrists, so I purposely cycle into asanas that are hands free so my wrists can recover from loading. I also remain mindful not to overload my wrists with excessive arm balances (ie only do 1 or 2 each practice). Again, please check out Jesse's videos and then let us know if you have any more questions. Namaste, Kreg
