Restorative Yoga- Legs Up the Wall Pose

In the next yoga class that you take position yourself next to the wall to enjoy the calming benefits of Legs Up the Wall Pose. This pose is a restorative pose that comes into practice during Savasana, when you are normally laying in Corpse Pose at the end of yoga class.

Legs Up the Wall Pose is great for relieving lower back pain and it stretches out the hamstrings.

If you suffer from headaches or insomnia try doing this pose right before you go to bed. Begin by laying on your side and scooting your bum as close to the wall as possible. Then roll over on to your back and allow your legs to stretch up the ceiling while leaning the weight of your legs into the wall. Stay here for five to seven minutes. Close your eyes, place your hands on your belly to focus on your breath or allow your arms to rest out to the side and notice how your chest opens up.
