Yoga Poses for Achy, Tired Feet and Legs

Yoga Poses for Achy, Tired Feet and Legs

Got tired feet? Chances are your feet have gone through a lot this summer! Between long walks, flip flops and stylish but uncomfortable summer footwear, your feet deserve a break. Yoga is a fantastic way to give tired feet a break- simply spending some time barefoot will revive cramped toes.

Here are 3 specific yoga stretches to try next time your tired feet and legs need some extra TLC.

1. Yogi Toes. While standing or seated in a chair, spread your toes as wide apart as possible and scrunch them back up. Repeat several times. This is a great exercise after a long day on your feet or after wearing cramped shoes. Finish up with a few ankle circles to increase circulation.

2. Elevated Child’s Pose. Come into an all-fours position with your hands underneath your shoulders and your knees underneath your hips. Tuck your toes underneath you. Lean your weight back towards your heels until you feel a gentle stretch across the soles of your feet. Hold for five breaths or as long as is comfortable.

3. Legs Up the Wall. Lay down at a wall, so that your torso is on the floor and your legs are propped up against the wall. You do not have to be at a 90 degree angle. Your legs should feel comfortable. Stay here for 5 breath or longer. This is a wonderful way to give your feet and legs a rest after a long day on your feet and is relaxing for the whole body.
