Lying with legs up the wall

  • Approaching the wall with the side of your pelvis first, swing your legs up the wall, supporting yourself with your arms.
  • Lay your back flat down on the floor or support your head, keeping the neck soft and the throat passive.
  • Stretch your arms over your head, placing the hands on the floor, cushion or other lift.
  • Relax but keep your legs together.
  • Let the lower back breathe and settle, especially at the sacrolumbar joint (pelvis/ lower back).
  • Once more, allow back brain to settle and temples to recede, until the eyes feel softer. Allow time for the breath to commune with the body.

Like a firmament, devoid of edge or centre,
Meditate on vastness and infinity.
To understand the innate truth,
Unite skill and wisdom.

Like the sun and moon in all their glory,
Mediate clearly without darkness,
Knowing that all beings are your parents,
Love and show compassion to them.

— Milarepa
