Try rolling up the end of your yoga mat and rest the heel of your hands on it, fingers on the floor – this reduces the angle on the wrist

Take most of your body weight back to the supporting knee(s)

Lift your body weight away from the wrists by engaging the abdominals

Tuck the chin, draw the shoulders down and back, imagine a piece of string pulling the upper back up toward the ceiling, focus on engaging under the armpits (to activate Serratus anterior)

Press through the fingers and knuckles of the hands rather than the heel of the hands

Try the pose on your fingertips, fists or forearms on the floor/bolster instead

Have the inner creases of elbows facing each other, elbows soft + unlocked
