Yoga Pose Of The Month: Viparita Karani

Viparita Karani

Viparita Karani, or “Legs-Up-The-Wall” pose, offers an excellent alternative inversion practice. It is a beautiful way to receive the benefits of inverting in a more relaxed, restorative approach. Perfect for those dealing with injuries, pregnancy, or menstruation, this posture allows the reversal of circulation and effects of gravity on the body. It is also a wonderful way to calm the nervous system, especially if held for 15 minutes or more.
