Yoga Exercise - Corpse Pose (Savasana)

Even relaxation can bring out the best in yous — but make sure you do it properly. The Corpse Pose or Savasana may look like a simple relaxing pose that is done in between or after an Asana, but this exercise requires a lot of concentration and will develop through continued practice. This exercise, if done correctly, will stimulate blood circulation and will lessen or relieve fatigue, nervousness, asthma, constipation, diabetes, indigestion, and insomnia. It will also improve one’s mental concentration.

Yoga Exercise - Corpse Pose (Savasana)
  1. Rotate your legs in and out, and then let them fall gently out to the sides.
  2. Let your arms fall alongside your body, slightly separated from the body, palms facing upwards.
  3. Rotate the spine by turning your head from side to side to center it.
  4. Then start stretching yourself out, as though someone is pulling your head away
    from your feet, your shoulders down and away from your neck, your legs down and away from your pelvis.
  5. Breathe deeply and slowly from your abdomen.
  6. Hold the pose for several minutes. Make your mind still and concentrate on your breath or the body.
  7. After doing the pose, bend your knees. Using your legs, push yourself onto one side.
  8. Push yourself in a sitting position.

No Yoga Session is complete without the Corpse Pose. It is the body’s time to process information after a Yoga Exercise, and it is a must that you stay awake during the five to ten minute-duration of this pose.
