 Lifting Legs on the Wall for 20 Minutes

After a long day, who doesn't want to relax? Instead of putting your legs on the couch, try lifting them up against the wall – this stance will not only help you relax but will also be beneficial to your body in a variety of ways. The benefits of the stance, termed Viparita Karani, are diverse, ranging from bettering blood circulation to boosting energy and reducing heel pain. The exercise increases receptivity, which is the polar opposite of activity and helps to balance the body.

In contrast, just 20 minutes of exercise is thought to be beneficial in calming the nervous system and reducing stress and anxiety. When blood circulation in the body improves, venous drainage improves, and tension or fatigue in the legs, feet, and even the hands and arms is relieved.

Legs up the Wall: How to Do It

On an empty stomach, do this exercise in the morning and evening. This pose does not require any warm-up. Try to relax your mind by taking slow, controlled breaths. Deeply inhale and exhale. Exhalations that last longer reduce the pulse rate and relax the neurological system.

  1. Place your hips against the wall while lying down on the floor.
  2. Raise your legs against the wall, making sure they're vertically facing the ceiling.
  3. As you keep your legs against the wall, attempt to relax each part of your body mindfully.
  4. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths in and out. For at least 20 minutes, stay in this position.
  5. To exit the pose, begin by bending your knees and pushing away from the wall.

Who shouldn't try it if they're not under medical supervision?

  1. Glaucoma patients, hypertension patients, pregnant ladies, and hernia patients.

So, are you ready to attempt the pose?
