In the evening, my legs are fluttering ... Isn't it? Mr. asami will tell you the recommended poses for such troubles.picture?Isn't it just the legs that are swollen?Yeah, no doubt⁉

If you stay in the same posture, such as when standing for a long time or working at a desk, blood circulation will be delayed and your legs will tend to swell.Gravity tends to cause the feet to accumulate water, and women are especially prone to swelling because they have less muscle mass in their feet, which is responsible for sending blood to the heart.

Refresh your legs with a heron pose that you can do while sitting

If you are worried about swelling of your legs, use a heron pose (crown asana) that stretches the muscles of your thighs, knees, and calves to increase the flexibility of your hip joints.It works on the lower body to reduce swelling and is expected to have the effect of tightening the legs.When you pose, keep your back straight and be careful not to have your back rounded.Take care of your feet after taking a bath or before going to bed.


While sitting, bend your knees and grab the soles of your feet with both hands.


Lift the sole of your foot as it is.If you think you can go, stretch your knees.

You don't have to stretch your knees.


Press firmly on the palm of your foot to extend the back of your calves and thighs.
When it is fully extended, hold it for 5 breaths.


Slowly bend your knees and lower your legs.Do the same for the opposite leg.

One point advice from asami-sensei!

It is also effective in combination with exercises such as turning the ankles and raising and lowering the heels on the toes.On days when you are worried about swelling, do not take a shower, but take a bath.

You can feel free to sit down, so even beginners of yoga should definitely try it.Pose comfortably and aim for clean and beautiful legs.
