Restorative Yoga Poses : Restorative Yoga Legs Up a Wall


Viparita Karani, legs up on the wall pose.
You’re going to need to find a place where you have a open wall, and you’re going to
have to have enough room so that you can bring your hips up against the wall, and be able
to swing open. So anyplace that you can find in your home that you have an open wall, with
you know, free of chairs and things, you’ll be good. So what she’s going to do the first
thing that to get into this pose, or the easiest way to get into this pose is to have your
hip against the wall, so then when she lays back she can spiral herself, and walk her
feet up the wall. And then she’ll have the opportunity to play a little bit, and kind
of move herself away from the wall. She’s a little too close to the wall, so she wants
to come away from the wall, keep coming, keep coming, keep coming, and then she’s going
to lift her hips, so that I can slide the bolster underneath her hips, and then come
back down. So you do want to have your hips draping over the bolster so there is a curve
in your lower back. And then she can rest her hands here. This is a great pose to rejuvenate
your legs; tired legs, helps prevent varicose veins.
