Do you put support on your back or lower on your bum?


I managed this pose for the first time last week where I actually felt I was doing it correctly and was very relaxed.

Viparita Karani, even in simplified forms,is a great pose for seniors and for those with swollen feet or arthritis. it is excellent for getting rid of ugly, blood -soaking varicose veins..I know this from personal expereince.
