Two modifications of Eka Pada Virasana. This is a half Virasana. And here is a full Virasana.
Jathara Parivartanasana [ Reclined Twist
A great, relaxing twist which helps to release tension from the lower back. Can be done with the knees straight or bent. Hug the knees towards you and bring them slowly over to the right. Arms out from the shoulders - wide.
Blood Pressure Regulator
If you have low back difficulties, careful with this one. Stand facing a wall and place your outstretched arms with fingers spread wide so the hands are at shoulder height, then walk your feet backwards so your back becomes flat like a table top. Hold this position comfortably for 6 full complete breaths, in through the nose and exhale through the nose. Then gently, walk your feet forward and slowly bring your hands down and the last to come down is your head. All done very slowly. This position puts the heart below the spinal cord so it sort of hangs relieving pressure against the heart and helping to keep the blood pressure regulated.
Pain Relief [from Meg's Story]
Lie on your left side. If possible, put a pillow under your left ribs. Reach your right arm up over your head and extend. Bend your left knee, and extend your right leg straight down. You can lie like this for up to a half hour several times a day. This position allows the maximum expansion of the rib cage.
Take deep breaths (as much as you can) and relax into this position. It is helping me a lot.
PS. Last night I had my husband pull gently on my right arm while I was doing this stretch. Awesome!! Caution: Do only what your body can tolerate.
