Leg in the Air
This pose uses gravity and stretches the thigh muscles, facilitating circulation to push impure blood from the legs and pelvis towards heart.
Lie on your mat with your knees bent, feet on the floor. Lift your hips with the support of your hands underneath your lower back, between the two hip bones of the pelvis. Make sure your elbows are parallel to each other. Engage your core and with bent knees lift your legs up toward the ceiling. Stay here for at least 10 deep breaths.
Leave your hips on the floor and extend your legs perpendicular to the floor into an ‘L’ shape. This will relieve fluid built up in your legs.
