- To begin, find a quiet space and place a cylindrical yoga bolster or two thick blankets a few inches from a wall.
- Lie down on the floor, with your hips elevated on the bolster or blankets, and prop your legs up against the wall so that you are in an "L" position.
- Adjust your pose to comfort (closer to or farther from the wall), rest your arms above your head or out to the sides and unclench your hands.
- Once you are completely comfortable, close your eyes and exhale. Mentally examine your body from head to toe, slowly and consciously dissolving the tension throughout. Be aware of your breath as it passes in and out of your body.
- Rest in this position for as long as you feel comfortable, then slowly open your eyes, straighten up and return to the "real world." By surrendering to the softness of this pose, you invite any residual knots of tension to dissolve completely, and it refreshes and renews, empties angst and agitation from the soul, and acts as an antidote to exhaustion, illness and weakened immunity.
