How do I get up from a reclining pose?

Leaving Reclining Poses

Whenever you're in a reclining pose, you should be sure to leave the pose carefully so that you don't injure your back or become light-headed as you rise. Here is the proper way to get up: - Roll slowly onto your side; - Move the top arm in front of you, placing the palm on the floor; - Using the elbow of the arm underneath you and hand that is resting palm-down in front of you, raise your shoulder off the floor; - Place the other palm on the floor when you comfortably can; - Using your hands (both palms should be on the floor now) and arms for support, gradually lift yourself to a seated position.
