Shavasana - Corps Pose

Like at the start you will end with one of the easiest yet hardest postures. It seems simple because your entire body just lies down on the floor. However, it is at the same time the hardest because the aim of being in this posture is to completely relax the body, muscles, joints and the mind.

Here are short instructions on how to get there:

  • Lie on your back with your legs stretched out hip-width apart (you can also open them wider if it feels comfortable).
  • Your arms lay out, away from the sides of your body. Turn your palms up.
  • Lift up your head and make sure your neck is relaxed and your head aligned with your spine.
  • Inhale, lift up your upper back and rotate your shoulders back and down, bring your scapula together at the back and then sink into the ground.
  • Shoulders remain relaxed.
  • In case of lower back pain, use a rolled up blanket under your knees and lift them up a bit.
  • Close your eyes and let your breath be natural. You can start with a couple of deep breaths, which will help you to relax and then melt into total relaxation of your body.
  • You can travel through your body, telling each part of your body part to relax and then feel a deep relaxation.
  • Stay here for at least 10 minutes.
  • Then turn to your left side, get into embryo pose by hugging your knees and send yourself some love.
  • Feel joy and then sit up from the left side.

This posture releases all the tensions in the body, both muscular and mental. It is important to feel right when you do the posture. If you feel uncomfortable, use props to facilitate the deep relaxation that you deserve after such hard work.
