Yoga In 60 Seconds ~ Legs Up The Wall
Restorative Chair Yoga
Although sitting on a chair for too long isn’t so great for our health, a chair can be used in a positive way to access yoga poses. Chair yoga is fantastic for modifying things to suit different abilities and can be used in creative ways.
I love this passive restorative pose for soothing the nervous system. It also relaxes the back muscles whilst refreshing the legs and feet. Great for really hot days or after a lengthy period standing up. It can be done either with legs on a chair or up the wall, whatever is easiest with the space you have available. You will need a blanket and a wall or a chair handy to do this practice.
I enjoy doing this at night by lying upside down on my bed and putting my feet on the wall above the bedhead. Get creative with where you rest your feet!
Stay here for 12 x cycles of breath or longer if you have the time. Remember that 60 seconds of practice is better than no practice and develops a healthy habit over time. There are practices that you may love and others not so much and that’s ok. Pick out the ones you love and stick with those at first to keep it enjoyable.
Enjoy a few moments of rest with your legs up the wall or on a chair. I’m 100% sure that you deserve this little bit of time just for you. Remember to subscribe to our socials to get more handy yoga tips. I look forward to seeing you over there!
