Sometimes when I practice yoga my wrists tend to ache because I work on the computer so much. As a result, I can’t remain in downward-facing dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana) pose for as long as I’d like to. The Yoga Journal pose finder site offers alternatives to downward-facing dog like dolphin pose. In dolphin pose, the emphasis is on the forearms, rather than the wrists (see picture). Dolphin pose is actually a bit more difficult (for me, at least) to hold, but it definitely helps alleviate the pressure on my wrists.
