Legs on A Chair

by Restorative Yoga Poses on March 26, 2011

Benefits:
This is a simple, straightforward pose that is quick and easy to do yet offers great restorative benefits. Helpful for a midday break from work or after extended time on your feet. This pose gently relaxes the mind and body and refreshes tired legs and back.

Props:
Chair or Couch, Eye Pillow, and Strap

Technique:
1) Begin by sitting in front of the chair and as you lie down to your side, swing your legs up onto the chair. Continue to roll onto your back so that your toes face the ceiling, calves supported by the chair, and your torso is at a right angle with the chair. You may prefer to have a pillow under your calves and an eye pillow for deeper relaxation. If you choose to use a strap secure it loosely around your upper thighs and once in position tighten it to eliminate any work the legs must do to keep steady.

2) Once comfortably positioned soften the belly and release any tension held in any of your muscles.
3) Enjoy 5 minutes of Diaphragmatic Breathing.
4) Gently roll to the side bringing the legs down from the chair and then slowly pushing up to a sitting position.
