With most of my yoga clients, we practice a pose towards the end of the practice called Viparita Karani, or more affectionately, Legs up the Wall. It looks exactly as it sounds; legs are extended straight up the wall with your butt up against the base of the wall, feet flexed, arms extended 6-8 inches from your sides, palms up. It’s delicious and luxurious and has two significant benefits; it brings blood back to the heart quickly and without any stress, and also changes the direction of energy in the body which aids and abets in destressing and changing perspective.
I practice this pose myself almost every single day and have been doing so for a very long time. It is the quickest and most wonderful way toward relief and a changed perspective on almost any situation, circumstance, monster, I might encounter during my day! It is restorative, meditative and rejuvenating. I’m doing it right now and listening to this:
I’m feeling relaxed, restored and ready.
Give it a try. I totally recommend it.
