Legs-Up-the-Wall Pose Viparita Karani

Legs up the Wall is a great restorative pose to relieve tension, fatigue and swelling in the legs after a long day on your feet, on a plane or at your desk! This "reverse practice" (the English translation for the sanskrit, Viparita Karani), obviously reverses the position of the legs, which relieves the work of the circulatory system and assists drainage in the lymphatic system for therapeutic effects. Adding a block and a strap around the thighs is a great way to stabilize the pelvis for further support to relax tender backs. Slide your legs up the wall and let your mind and body settle into deep relaxation!
