Just wondering if anyone can tell me why I struggle with Happy Baby pose and Legs up a Wall.
In Happy Baby I can hold onto my feet fine but I can’t keep my lower back on the floor. When I release my feet and push my back down, my legs cramp up and I cannot relax in the pose at all. It does not seem to be a flexibility problem but I just cant get my back straight and hold my legs in that position.
I also have similar struggles with Legs up a Wall… which I know is supposed to be a really relaxing pose. But when I do it, my legs push me away from the wall and even when I bend them I can’t relax my quads at all and it hurts to hold my legs up.
My yoga teacher is baffled and has just advised that I don’t do these poses, but I would really like to know what is going on if anyone has any ideas…?
