Hi DYWM. I’ve recently been experiencing mild discomfort in my elbows, with a little more severity in my right elbow. It is likely early tennis elbow or something related, and I want to make sure I nip this issue in the bud before it becomes recurring.
A little background: I’ve been practicing with DYWM (and a in person, somewhat) for the past two years. Over the past 6 months, I’ve been very consistent in my practice, working through Fiji’s yoga challenges and absolutely loving it. While being stuck inside, I’ve been doing a lot of repetitive yoga and practicing peak poses like arm balances and wheel pose (and cartwheels, lol). It’s likely that I’ve been overdoing it, and also overextending in poses like downward dog (or having poor technique).
The elbow discomfort has been relatively mild, but it’s becoming a nuisance. I haven’t experienced this before, so I’m looking for tips! Specifically, treatment, stretches, and yoga classes I can still do while resting them!!
Thank you in advance
