Aching legs and feet? - this pose is great for after your Christmas shop

If Christmas shopping has left you with aching feet and tired legs, you need to spend a little time in Legs up the Wall. Although simple, this pose releases healing energies, gives your legs a rest from gravity and by bringing blood to your brain, calms your mind. 

To get into Legs up the Wall, sit by a wall with your knees bent and your right hip up against the wall. Swivel your hips so that your legs come up the wall. Shuffle your bottom as close as you can to the wall and position your arms where is comfortable for you, either a little way from your body or overhead. Close your eyes if you wish and spend 10-15 minutes in the pose if you can.

To come out of the pose roll onto your right side and draw your knees towards your chest. Spend a minute or so there to allow your blood pressure to normalise before coming up. Feeling better??
