Viparita Karani – legs up the wall pose
What a weekend! I’ve done a 99c/99p promotion this week which has seen BodyMAGIC! soar up to the top of the charts. I can definitely now call it a Bestseller! This feels so good! But not as good as the feedback, reviews, and messages of support I have had. I feel that the whole project has been so worthwhile. The love has definitely been OFF THE WALL!
I would like to share with you a little practice called Viparita Karani (Legs UP THE WALL Pose). It’s a part inversion but only in the latter stages. It rejuvenates the whole body but soothes tired legs, gives the back an awesome deep tissue massage and helps to prepare you for a shoulderstand.
In 2006, I went on my first yoga holiday the Egypt. It was wonderful. Part of the trip was a very early morning walk up Mount Sinai. For me, the journey up wasn’t too bad. However, by the time we were coming down, the sun was well up and hot in the sky and my knees were starting the grumble a little. We had a yoga class about half way down which was welcome but then had another 967 steps to walk down afterwards!
It’s funny how you remember numbers like that!
By the time we got back to our accommodation, I thought I’d never walk again! But this practice that I’m sharing with you today had me dancing that evening! Simply incredible!
Please check with your health adviser if you have any neck injuries, any complications in pregnancy or if you are in any doubt about this practice. Please watch the video once through before you practice otherwise you are highly likely to have to strain your neck to watch and practice at the same time, especially if you have not done this before.
Enjoy the MAGIC! of this wonderful, relaxing yet revitalising practice.
