I can not believe this month marks my ten year anniversary of owning my own yoga business, Meditation Mutha! The word gratitude does not even begin to express how I feel about the abundance, relationships, connections, opportunities and experiences I have manifested on this journey since leaving corporate America a decade ago.
I reflect back on my 20-year career in a high pressure sales job and can not imagine ever going back to the overwhelmingly intense environment that encompassed my world on a daily basis. Twelve hour days on a computer banging out massive proposals for multi-million dollar accounts as the stress of the due date quickly approached is no way to spend your life no matter how good the money.
At age 39 I could barely feel my pinky and ring finger from the carpal tunnel that had developed in my arms due to over-use on the computer. The tingling sensation spread from my fingers all the way up my forearms and I lost control of my grip. My health was being effected by my intense conditions and I knew something had to change.
That is when I decided to take a leap of faith and jump ship to a completely different lifestyle, yoga. Overtime I worked on gently stretching my arms and wrists to relieve my symptoms. My reduced time on the computer added to the effectiveness of my self-care and before I knew it my carpal tunnel dissipated!
If you find yourself on the computer or texting for endless hours you may want to bring your attention to a little preventative self-care. If you are already experiencing numbing or tingling in your hands and arms then it is time to take action before your condition worsens.
Scroll down to take this week’s yoga class which will open up your wrists and arms to prevent or address tightness in this area. Enjoy!
This week’s 13 minute yoga class, Yoga for Opening Wrists and Arms is a perfect sequence to relieve carpal tunnel syndrome and tightness and/or tingling in the upper extremities. Through postures that unblock energy from the finger tips all the way up to the shoulder and chest, we will increase energy flow and free any congestion in the area. Yoga with Meditation Mutha is for everyBODY. Please join me in this opportunity to relieve pain and discomfort in the wrists and arms and prevent future injury. Enjoy!
