Hand and wrist issues affect millions of Americans in every type of workplace. Whether it’s numbness, tingling, pain, or swelling, discomfort in the hands and wrists can stand in the way of so many tasks, activities, and movements.

Letitia is no stranger to hand and wrist issues. She’s dealt with carpal tunnel issues, de Quervain’s tenosynovitis, and even a trigger finger. For all of these issues, Yoga and Ayurveda have been key to mitigating pain and creating freedom of movement. She’s been practicing these techniques for years!

In this workshop, you will learn simple, easy-to-practice techniques and series for arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and other issues. Learn how to release stress and relieve strain in the upper extremities. Letitia will also be introducing variations to practice in class when weight-bearing poses on the hands cause discomfort, nerve flossing techniques to deal with numb, tingly pain, and lifestyle and nutritional resources that support hand and wrist health.

If you suffer from hand & wrist pain, this workshop is a Don’t Miss. Can’t attend live? We’ve got you! Sign up and receive access to the recording for 30 days. You’ll want to return to this video and take notes!
