VIPARITA KARANI aka “legs-up-the-wall-pose”.
Get into the pose: Find a wall and bring your sit bones close to the wall, extend the legs and RELAX.
*legs do not have to be completely straight!
It’s the most simple-yet most beneficial asana (pose) I know to:
1. Quiet the mind
2. Release fatigue and cramps in the legs
*When was the last time you did a cartwheel? Once in a while, let our energy go bottom-up instead of the usual top-bottom.
3. Gently stretches hamstrings, back and lower back
4. Eases digestion, stomach cramps
5. Helps Insomnia
+Shift in perception, new ideas, creativity!!
These are just a few of the benefits. I do this when my mind or body feels tension, and after 5 minutes I feel completely rejuvenated yet relaxed.
