Yoga Post of The Month: Legs Up The Wall

A great yoga pose for cooling down this summer is the

“Legs-Up-the-Wall Pose” (Viparita Karani)

This restorative pose helps calm the nervous system and promotes relaxation, which can be particularly soothing during the hot summer months.

How to do Legs-Up-the-Wall Pose:

1. Sit with one hip next to a wall.

2. Lie back as you swing your legs up the wall, so your body forms an L shape.

3. Adjust your position so that your sit bones are as close to the wall as is comfortable.

4. Relax your arms by your sides, palms facing up.

5. Close your eyes and breathe deeply, staying in the pose for 5-15 minutes.

This pose helps reduce heat in the body, calms the mind, and promotes a sense of coolness and relaxation.
