Many yoga teachers believe that Viparita Karani (Legs-Up-the-Wall Pose) is good for almost everything that ails you, including anxiety, arthritis, digestive problems, headache, high and low blood pressure, insomnia, migraine, mild depression, respiratory ailments, urinary disorders, varicose veins, premenstrual syndrome, and menopause.
Not only that, but it's also one of the most relaxing yoga postures there is—and all you need is a wall to take advantage of its healing benefits.
Sit sideways at the wall, with one hip close to it and your legs drawn into your chest. Roll onto your back with your legs bent, letting your buttocks come to the wall. Then straighten your legs up the wall. If your buttocks don't quite touch the wall, lift your hips by pressing with your feet, slide closer, and lower your hips. If you have tight hamstrings, your legs will not meet the wall. (If that's the case for you, try bending your knees and letting your heels soften into the wall.)
