There’s more to yoga poses than meets the eye! According to an article by the Harvard Medical School, the ancient practice of yoga has immense physical and mental benefits – including enhanced fitness, improved cardiovascular health, enhanced self-efficacy, sleep, weight maintenance, and overall wellbeing. [1]

If you want to experience the therapeutic benefits of yoga with minimal fuss, give The Legs Up The Wall (also known as Viparita Karani) pose a try. It’s simple, doesn’t require flexibility, and you don’t have to sign up for a yoga class.

Benefits of ‘Legs Up the Wall’

⦁ Lower Back: The semi-supine position of the pose relieves mild strain and tension on the lower back.

⦁ Pelvic Floor: If you have a tense (hypertonic) pelvic floor, the pose may relax and release your muscles. Try and place a pillow under the pelvis for better results.

⦁ Hamstrings: The lumbar spine relaxes, back muscles are stretched, and your hamstrings benefit from all this.

⦁ Feet: Inverting the legs helps reduce swelling, especially after a long day of traveling or physical activity.

⦁ Circulation: When legs are placed above the heart, gravity can aid blood and lymphatic circulation.

⦁ Relaxation: The controlled breathing and semi-supine position of your body facilitates a lowered heart rate and helps with insomnia, stress, and anxiety. [2]

While the pose is considered safe, people with hypertension, serious spine problems, glaucoma, and pregnant women should consult their physician first. (PS: This content should ever be used as a substitute for direct medical advice from your doctor or other qualified clinicians)

😳 What Tinnitus Does To Your Brain Cells (And How To Stop It)

After 47 years of studies and countless brain scans done on more than 2,400 tinnitus patients, scientists at the MIT Institute found that in a shocking 96% of cases, tinnitus was actually shrinking their brain cells.

As it turns out, tinnitus and brain health are strongly linked.

Is because they are using something called "the wire method", a simple protocol inspired by a classified surgery on deaf people from the 1950s...
