Legs Up The Wall Posture is fun, especially if you need something to do with the kids. It seems like a made up posture but it has a purpose just like any other posture in your yoga practice. This posture is special. It gives you versatility. You can practice with an actual wall or a pretend wall. If you do this posture wrong on either wall you’ll be able to feel it for sure.
- Boosts energy
- Helps relieve menstrual cramps
- Alleviates headaches and anxiety
- Relieve lower back pain
- Soothes swollen feet
How to achieve Legs Up The Wall Posture:
- Start by setting up a cozy space around a wall and shimmy your hips as close to the wall as possible, then start walking your feet up the wall until your body is in a somewhat L-shaped position.
- Let your arms rest on your belly or out to the sides. At this point, focus on your breath– try elongating your breath, taking a deep, slow inhale through your nose and a deep, slow exhale through your nose.
- You can place a yoga block or pillow under your head
- Don’t place your body at a full 90 degrees in this posture because it can cause circulation issues.
