My yoga practice has changed a lot since my early days. I’m no longer a sensation junkie and I find deep satisfaction exploring the subtleties in conscious movement. My ability to tune into my body’s subtleties has allowed me to catch any tightness in my wrists and forearms caused by prolonged computer use or a vigorous yoga practice. In my last post I wrote about how this tension contributed to the development of a ganglion wrist cyst. My go-to techniques to soothe my tight extensor digitorum include applying a sustained compression to this meaty forearm muscle with the Roll Model® Therapy Balls.
