The Savasana or (Corpse Pose )

This is the pose for complete relaxation...


Let yourself lie flat and heavy on the mat, breath rhythmically but naturally. Try to feel the weight of your body as though it were digging into the ground. Consciously relax every muscle, starting with the head, neck, shoulders, chest, arms , hands and fingers, down the torso and abdomen, down the back, hips , thighs, knees, legs, feet and toes. Relax the muscles of your face, forehead, eyes, cheeks, mouth, chin. Pretend you are an old piece of rope lying on the ground. When you have relaxed completely, repeat the process. You will soon discover a residue of tension here and there which must be removed. Do not let yourself relax into sleep. After a few moments reverse the process by deliberately tensing the relaxed muscles one by one, stretch hard In time you will be able to hold this pose for ten or fifteen minutes without either day-dreaming of falling asleep. You will find such relaxation more beneficial than an hours sleep
