I distinctly remember the conversation I had with a YogaFit master trainer, in that she was also an airline steward(ress), and that she used the Legs up the Wall, or Legs on the Ball Yoga Pose to help her swollen feet, and her tendencies to have varicose veins.
After having seatmates on the plane, and flying at night, for a 13 hour flight, it was not easy to get up and walk around the plane, on the way back. Mind you we had lots of turbulance too. (Seat belt sign ON!) So needless to say, my legs/ankles/feet were a might swollen. I’ve never had this sensation before-yup…never had swollen feet during pregnancy (it was the yoga!) neither. So this was a new experience for me.
So it took a bit of searching for me to remember about the ease of the Legs up the wall yoga pose. Again, Ahhh. Did a bit of ankle circles, heel flexing and toe pointing too.
Now if I could get back on my own time schedule, instead of 13 hours ahead I’d be good. So I’ll go to bed in a bit!
What do you do for your swollen legs/feet/ankles?
I’m walking by the lounge in the Korea (ICN) airport with a 7 hour layover, and there is an advertisement for a yoga session. Hmmmm, need to see what that is all about!
Taught a prenatal yoga class in Mongolia, where the custom is that you do not get down on the floor in a public setting. Had to really change up what I was going to teach. Good thing I created two lesson plans, and one of them was to do poses in the chair for prenatal yoga!
Also taught a private yoga lesson for Amber’s Chamber of Commerce director in Avraikheer. The emphasis on poses for back issues.
Additionally, showed Patrick and the director, the YogaFit Flying Bird vinyasa, and one of my favorites, the YogaFit Twisted Chair vinyasa (or maybe that is my vinyasa, but I’m just presenting the poses in the traditional YogaFit format). Definately got their (and mine) heart rate up, just with those vinyasas and a few Salute to the Suns.
p.s. See you soon in the states!
p.s.s. I guess I’m an international yoga teacher now.
