Wall Yoga Poses for Beginners Benefits
I love this restorative pose. We can relax our core and back as we reap the benefits for our circulation and metabolism. Move the couch out of the way and swing your legs up the wall!

The wall can assist us in alignment while in forward folds. It is easy to lean too far back on our heels when in Uttanasana or Prasarita Padottansana. The wall will push us to line the hips with our heels and get a deeper stretch for the hamstrings.
