Here are a few yoga poses that are worth noting.  (See the three images.) I used to do one of these poses when I was a waitress back in college. I was always on my feet and at the end of the workday, I wanted to lay down in a way to counteract being on my feet all day.

Ideally, I have found it’s best to be in this pose for 15 minutes which gives you enough time to relax.

Try these variations and see how you feel!
