  1. Thanks! I sometimes do other asanas using my fists, but didn't know if that compromised correct alignment in some of these other poses as the arm is turned at a different angle. I will play around with this very carefully.
  2. Hi y'all - I know there are a number of poses that require wrists to be at 90 degrees angles for proper alignment. My wrists would break before I hit that point because my bones would touch - this isn't a ligament or tendon issue. So my question is, are poses such as side-crow completely off-limits if it is anatomically impossible to have a 90-degree angle, or is there a modification I am unaware of that can make these poses accessible? Thanks!
