Sometimes we can have niggles and old injuries in the body which we need to be mindful of when we practise. I personally have an old wrist injury and sometimes it niggles; meaning that weight-bearing is painful. In these times when I still want a robust practise but have to skip the traditional sun salutations and vinyasas, I have to be creative! So this practise replaces chaturanga - upward facing dog - downward facing dog with forearm plank and sphinx and extended puppy pose. The vinyasas in the primary series are replaced with a variety of boat poses (navasana) and bridge. Rounding the practise off with upward facing bow (if the wrists allow!) shoulder stand and headstand before relaxing into savasana.
