Legs Up The Wall Benefits
This pose literally means inverted in action. It is such a great tool to help you invert the action of your day by draining the lymphatic and other fluid in your legs that come from sitting or standing for long periods of time.
I personally love this inversion yoga pose because it’s one of the safe ones you can do during your menstrual cycle.
Legs up the wall is also great at getting blood back to your head and heart which is beyond helpful for those like myself that suffer from Dysautonomia.
Pro Tip: If you get any dizziness go extremely slowly in and out of this pose. Practicing on a bed can give you the best support if you need to stop mid transition.
