A lot of modern Yogi’s believe that the pose legs up the wall may have the power to cure whatever ails you. This is a pose to do when you come home and you’re very tired and your legs hurt and your lower back hurts and you need to revive yourself because you have another engagement later. So what do you do? Sit down on the floor by a wall and place your right hip flush to the wall and swing your legs up, scoot your butt up as close to the wall until you feel comfortable. Stay in that position for 5 to 15 minutes as the metabolic waste drain from your tired legs.

This is a pose that my mother likes to do and my mother is 93 and does it several times a day.

Suppose is considered a Restorative pose.
