As a flight attendant I was often tired and ready for bed after long trips, but had trouble getting to sleep. Your body can get aching and slightly stiff after a long flight. I began to put my legs up the wall while in bed, resting them on the headboards in my hotel rooms. I slowing began to feel most relaxed in this position. After being on your feet all day, it's great to allow blood to drain down the legs. Resting in the “Legs up the wall” yoga pose is great for circulation, helps relieves low back pain, and minimizes varicose veins, with overall benefits of decompressing from stress helping to enhance relaxation.
