Legs up The Wall Pose

  • Stretches the hamstrings, torso and the back of the neck 

  • Have some form of support to lay on either a large pillow/folded blanket/towels against a wall, plus some support for your head if needed
  • Sit with the left side of your torso by the wall, getting your hip as close to the wall as possible
  • Swing your legs up against the wall as you lay back onto your support (make sure you are being supported in your lower back)
  • Get your buttocks as close to the wall as is comfortable for you (this may take a few attempts to be comfortable) if your hamstrings are tight you may be more comfortable with your buttocks a little further away from the wall, have your arms out to the side
  • Have the neck and head in a relaxed neutral position
  • To release from the pose bend your knees and swing them to the right with your upper body and push yourself up with your hands
  • Hold this pose for as long as you are comfortable
