6 Things That Happen When You Put Your Legs Up Against A Wall Every Day | Viparita Karani. In this video, you will learn about the 6 things that happen when you put your legs up against a wall every day. This yoga asana or yoga pose is called Viparita Karani. This pose in English is called legs up the wall pose as well.
Doing legs up against a wall is a posture which is most nourishing, grounding and calming for you.
In Legs Up the Wall posture, you lie on your back with your sit bones as close to the wall as is comfortable for you. From there, you then extend your legs up the wall so that the backs of your legs are resting fully against it.
You can practice this pose for at least 10 to 15 minutes to gain maximum health benefits. The 6 things that happen when you put your legs up against a wall every day are:
1. Reduces Lower Back Pain
This pose stretches out the hamstrings and reduces lower back pain by relieving the pressure from the lower back.
2. Reduces Edema in the Legs and Feet
In this pose the effects of gravity on your legs and feet are reversed so any stuck or stagnant fluids that may build up there if you have low blood pressure or spend a lot of time on your feet during your day will get moving.
3. Relieves Tired Leg Muscles
When you hang out your legs up the wall then it helps to drain tension from the legs, feet, and even the hips if you have them elevated on blocks.
4. Decreases Inflammation
This pose increases blood flow and circulation and reduces swellings in the feet, ankles, and calves region.
5. Super calming for the Nervous System
This posture is a deeply relaxing pose. When you combine a longer hold of Legs Up the Wall with slow, rhythmic breathing, you will be tapping into your rest and digest nervous response. When you do poses like Legs Up the Wall consistently for a period of time, you may notice that your body feels healthier overall and you have a calm state of mind.
6. Helps Quiet the Mind
Doing this posture may help you in cultivating a quiet mind if you practice it for a period of time. You will evoke a meditative state by fully releasing and relaxing your body and by focusing on deep breathing.
Legs up the wall benefits are numerous. One of the great pose for improving circulation in legs. It is called viparita karani mudra in Yoga.
Viparita Karani can be any practice where one is upside down. This can include the asanas of shoulder stand (Sarvangasana), headstand (Sirsasana), or handstand (Adho Mukha Vrksasana). In the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, as in most classical texts on haṭha yoga, viparita karani is listed as a mudra, meaning its purpose is for the directing of energy or kundalini upwards within the body, using gravity, as opposed to asanas which are used in the Hatha Yoga Pradipika to create steadiness.
In one popular expression of viparita karani as an asana in modern postural yoga, it resembles Salamba Sarvāngāsana (supported shoulder stand) but with extension in the thoracic spine (rather than the cervical spine, elbows on the floor and hands supporting hips or lower back. In Iyengar Yoga, the pose is described as “a restful practice, where the body is inverted without effort”, and the lower back and buttocks are supported with a pile of blankets, while the legs are rested against a wall. Alternatively the back can rest on the floor and the legs point straight up (also called Uttanapadasana), either against a wall or free.
