#TovamiTip 1: Measure out the distance that your hands have to be from the wall by first sitting with your hips against the wall. Flex your feet and place your two blocks in line with the heels of your feet. Place your hands shoulder-width in line with those blocks. That's roughly how far your hands have to be from the wall.

#TovamiTip 2: Press strongly into the knuckles of your hands so that you take the pressure out of your wrists! Be careful of how long you're holding this posture and take breaks when you feel like you're sinking into your hands.
