4 Soothing restorative poses

Legs-Up-the-Wall Pose

Viparita Karani

Sit next to a wall with the side of your hip touching. Lie back and swing your legs up the wall, bringing your hips against the floorboard. Use your hands to slide in closer if you find yourself slipping away. Straighten your legs and keep them together. Relax your feet. Bend your elbows to a 90-degree angle with palms facing up, resembling the arms of a cactus. Close your eyes and hold here for 15 minutes.

Diamond Legs

Supta Baddha Konasana, Variation

Externally rotate your legs and bend your knees. Drag your heels down the wall toward your hips with the pinky edges of your feet touching or close together. Let them drop to a level that is comfortable and not beyond your edge. Remember, the whole point is to open up and relax. Gently encourage your knees toward the wall without forcing or using pressure. Hold here for 15 minutes.

Straddle Legs

Upavistha Konasana, Variation

Extend your legs straight and wide into a broad V-shape. Dont worry about opening them as wide as you can. Instead allow them to open naturally and just unwind. Let gravity do its job as you focus on deep, calm breathing. Keep your lower belly slightly engaged to protect your lower back from any pressure. Hold for 13 minutes. To transition, slide your hands behind your knees to manually bend and close your legs.


Return to Legs-Up-Then cross your left ankle above your right knee so it rests on the beginning of your quad. Flex your left foot on the outside of the right thigh. Bend your right leg as you drag the foot down the wall. The goal is to open the left hip, not to bring your right heel to the ground. Start with a slight drag of the top heel down as you focus on externally rotating your left hip. Give your outer left thigh a dainty press toward the wall to stimulate release in your left glute. Hold here for 13 minutes, then switch sides.
