Legs Up the Wall Pose (Viparita Karani)

A series of illustrated yoga poses with men performing the Legs Up the Wall Pose

Legs Up the Wall Pose is a beginner pose typically done towards the end of Yogi’s practice. Legs Up the Wall Pose requires the use of some props such as a few blankets to put under the hips and a sand bag or two to place on the feet. The placement of the blanket will rely on how tight the hamstrings are. Legs Up the Wall Pose is a passive pose meant to be in for a while. Legs Up the Wall Pose is very relaxing and is believed to be helpful in almost all aspects of the body and mind from tight hips and hamstrings to stress and anxiety. Lady Yogi’s, it is advised to avoid Legs Up the Wall Pose and inversions in general during menstruation.

To do Legs Up the Wall Pose, place a folded blanket a few inches from the wall. The distance of your placement from the wall will depend on tightness and height, try a few different places and get comfy! Start laying on the side and roll hips onto the blanket with the legs going straight up the wall. For more intensity have another Yogi place a sandbag on the feet and be ready to feel grounded!
