Here Are 3 Things That Happen When You Put Your Legs Up Against A Wall Every Day

Viparita Karani often referred to as Inverted Lake Pose or Legs up the Wall pose, is definitely one of the easiest and simplest poses that virtually everyone can perform at home. It has become all rage among dancers, athletes, runners, and stressed-out workers due to its ability to both alleviate pain and tightness and calm the mind and reduce anxiety. It is one of the best things you can do for yourself at the end of a tough day or before an important event.

  • Lie on the back with your bum against the wall, or as close to the wall as possible, with the legs raised straight up the wall hip distance apart.
  • Feel free to prop the bum up on a pillow, particularly if you are pregnant.
  • The soles of the feet should be facing upward toward the ceiling and the arms should be placed beside you for balance.
  • The amount of stiffness in the hips determines how close to the wall your legs are.
  • Ideally, the will be touching the wall, but it might take a while for you to get there.
  • For a deeper stretch, do the same as explained above, but instead of keeping the feet hip distance apart, spread the legs into a wide V formation.
  • This will enable you to feel a deeper stretch in the groin area while being gentle at the same time.
  • This version requires more mobility and balance.
  • If it`s challenging for you, stay there.
