1. Legs Up The Wall (Viparita Karani)
Set your pillow up against the wall or headboard at the top of your bed and lay on top of the pillow with your sit bones at the headboard or wall. (EYC note: if you choose to do only 1 of these poses, make it this one; it is an extremely powerful, restorative pose).
2. Reclined Bound Angle Pose (Supta Baddha Konasana)
With your seat on the bed and your back lying on the pillow lengthwise, bring the soles of your feet together as the knees naturally drop out towards the side. Stay here for at least 2 minutes. (EYC note: you can put pillows underneath your legs if this pose strains or hurts your inner thighs or lower back).
3. Seated Wide Angle Pose (Upavistha Konasana)
Sitting with your legs spread wide apart, place a pillow horizontally in front of your torso and fold forward from the hips, walking your hands out in front of you until your upper body comes to rest on the pillow. Breathe deeply on the pillow for 10 rounds of breath.
4. Supine Spinal Twist (Jathara Parivartanasana)
Bring your knees over to the left with arms out by your side, palms facing up. Stay here for a minute and then switch to the other side.
5. Corpse Pose (Savasana)
