If you practice other forms of yoga, as well as Bikram, you may notice that we don’t do any feet-up or inversion poses in the Bikram postures. Sometimes it’s nice to get the change of perspective – both mental and physical -that comes from putting your feet up, so this is a simple, safe inversion pose you can do in addition to your Bikram practice.

feet up
Sit facing a wall (or your headboard) with your butt about six inches away.
Lie back and extend your legs up the wall.
If this is too intense a stretch for your hamstrings, slide farther away from the wall.
If it’s not enough, scoot closer.
Let your arms rest by your sides, palms facing up, and breathe gently, feeling the stretch in the backs of your legs
