You may or may not be familiar with the “Legs-Up-the Wall” yoga pose but it is considered one of the easier inversion poses and is said to have a restorative effect.

The yoga pose is called Viparita Karani, Viparita meaning “inverted” and Karani meaning “in action.” It is considered a restorative pose because it requires almost no effort on your part, allowing you to relax and focus on your breathing.  It is done by simply putting your legs up on the wall while lying on the floor, creating a sort of capital letter “L” shape with your body. For more detailed instructions on how to get your legs up the wall, you can google the pose. Experiment with the distance from the wall, until you find the placement that feels the best for you.  Many articles suggest putting a small folded towel or cloth under your pelvis.

The pose stimulates circulation of the upper torso which creates rebalancing after you have been standing or sitting too long.  The pose is said to relieve tired or cramped feet and legs, gently stretch the back of the legs, relieve mild back ache and calm the mind.  It is also recommended as a great pose to do before going to bed as it helps regulate blood flow and improves digestion. As with any inversion pose, Viparita Karani should be avoided if you have serious eye problems, such as glaucoma. With serious neck or back problems only perform this pose with the supervision of an experienced teacher and talk with your doctor before trying.
