In a word, yes! Yoga can slow the progression or control varicose veins.
So if you’re looking for a beginner yoga pose to either prevent varicose veins or to keep them from getting worse, The Vein Clinic recommends that you try this pose. Called Viparita Karani, or inverted Lake Pose, you stretch your legs up against a wall.
This yoga pose helps encourage blood flow to parts of your body that need it while giving the hardworking valves in your leg veins a much needed rest from their tough job of bringing blood up your legs against the force of gravity.
