Stressed? Anxious? Restless? Do legs-up-the-wall pose (viparita karani) for 5-15 minutes and arise feeling grounded.
At a wall, lie on your right side and scoot your buttocks to touch the baseboard. Roll onto your back and lift your legs to rest against the wall. Place a folded blanket (3-4 inches thick) under your hips – especially if your hamstrings are tight.
To come out of the pose, first move your blanket to the side, then roll to your side and gentle push up. Move with awareness to maintain this centered feeling.
