Yoga Pose: Viparita Karani (Legs Up the Wall)

September 12, 2013    BY AnaMargret Sanchez

Calm your body and restore your mind with Viparita Karani, often called “Legs-up-the-Wall” pose. This gentle inversion will lengthen the backs of the legs and neck, open the chest, relieve lower-back pain, re-oxygenate the blood, and calm the nervous system. Cautions: menstruation, pregnancy, glaucoma, and high blood pressure. Props (if available): bolster, blankets, eye pillow, and wall.

Audio and video downloads are available for Digital Members.
