1 Inverted Wall Pose Before Bed Can Change Your Life! Dr. Mandell

Welcome to the soothing practice of legs up on a wall, also known as Viparita Karani in yoga. By elevating your legs above your heart level and resting them against a wall, you invite a plethora of benefits for both your body and mind.

As you settle into this pose, allow yourself to experience the following rejuvenating effects:

1. Improve Circulation: Enhance blood flow and lymphatic drainage throughout the body to reduce swelling and promote overall circulation.

2. Relieve Muscle Tension: Release tightness in the legs, lower back, and hips, allowing for a deeper sense of relaxation and ease.

3. Alleviate Stress and Anxiety: Calm the nervous system, reduce stress, anxiety, and insomnia, and promote a feeling of tranquility and inner peace.

4. Energize the Body: Revitalize your energy levels by boosting circulation and invigorating the body and mind.

5. Support Digestion: Stimulate the digestive organs, aid in digestion, and promote gut health for optimal well-being.

6. Encourage Mindfulness: Practice being present in the moment, focusing on your breath and sensations in the body to cultivate mindfulness and clarity.

7. Reduce Swelling: Minimize swelling in the lower extremities for post-workout recovery or after long periods of standing or sitting.

8. Enhance Sleep Quality: Improve sleep by calming the body and mind before bedtime for a restful night's sleep.

9. Boost Immune Function: Strengthen the immune system by improving circulation and promoting lymphatic flow.

10. Improve Posture: Align the spine, release back tension, and enhance posture by countering the effects of prolonged sitting.

11. Strengthen Core Muscles: Engage the core to strengthen abdominal muscles and enhance core stability.

12. Practice Mindfulness: Incorporate mindfulness meditation into your practice, focusing on breath and awareness.

13. Combine with Breathwork: Pair the pose with deep breathing techniques to deepen relaxation and calm.

14. Visualize Healing: Envision healing energy flowing through the body to promote overall well-being and balance.

15. Set Intentions: Reflect on positive intentions or affirmations to cultivate a positive mindset and outlook.

Allow this time in legs up on a wall to be a sanctuary for your body and soul, a space of restoration, rejuvenation, and self-care. Embrace the holistic benefits of this simple yet powerful pose and let it nourish you from the inside out. Namaste.

    Also, it’s a nice way to begin to start stretching your hamstrings without bending over and hurting your back.

  • @josephcovino9697 says:

    Doc of mine, just when I thought you can’t keep coming up with subjects to improve my health and what I’m worried lately about (the swelling top of my feet) you come out with this. I mean this respectfully really , but my first thought was YEA it’s logical it will do all those things WHILE you’re upside down, but as soon as you turn right side up you have all the same problems. I realize you are way more knowledgeable in this field than me, but I wish you would have addressed this or how long the good will last, and whether you say we have to do this “crazy” thing every night for the rest of our lives ? A faithful subscriber.
