Legs up the wall pose ( Viparita Karani) before sleep

Try "legs up the wall" pose (Viparita Karani) before laying down in bed at night.
To practice this pose, lay on your hips, back, shoulders and head down on the floor and prop your legs up to the wall.
Make the pose as comfortable as possible by placing a blanket, bolster under the hips/lower back and a small pillow under the head.
If legs completely up the wall is too intense, consider bending the knees and resting your calves and heels on a chair.
Comfortably rest in this pose for 10-15 minutes.
Essential oils helps release feelings of tension, anxiety and irritation. It naturally calms the heart beat and breathing patterns. Massage into areas of tension ( shoulders, lower back etc).

Essential oils to use: Ylang Ylang, lavender, bergamot, sandalwood or lemon.
