How to Ease the Back Pain. Shh! You Need to Know. It’s Yoga.

How To Ease Back Pain. You Need To Know. It’s Yoga…

The economy is in the dumps. Gas prices continue to shoot upwards. Your kids may be off from school and driving you up the wall.

It’s summer, very nearly fall time. It used to be vacation time. If only you can take a vacation from stress.

Now you can. Right now while you read this post.

Sit up straight and take a deeper breathe than you normally do. Hold it for a second or two, and let the air out with a sigh. Go ahead. No one will notice.

Now, do it again. Take a deeper breathe than before. Hold it for a moment or two and just… let … it … go.

Most people tend to breathe very shallow in their chest. Shallow breathing promotes stress and tension. Deep breathing melts it away.

In a few minutes of deep breathing, you can actually eliminate all stress and tension, lower your blood pressure, and instantly gain a lot more positive attitude.

Legs Up the Wall or on the Ball Yoga Pose for Swollen Feet

Ahhh,

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?
