Unusual props - Legs (not) up the Wall


This is a variation of Legs up the Wall that you may find easier if you find the straight leg version a little hard on your legs. To come into the pose simply sit on your mat or a blanket with your right hip against the settee then swing your legs up onto a sofa and lie back. Relax your arms by your sides or take them overhead whichever feels more comfortable for you and stay here if you like for 15-20 minutes. 

To come out of the pose roll onto your right side and stay here a few moments before coming back up. 

Legs (not) up the Wall gives your legs a rest from gravity and brings blood to the brain which is very calming for the brain. Avoid if you have neck issues or glaucoma.
