Learning the Basics of Savasana Yoga
Savasana or The Corpse Pose
Savasana, also known as the Corpse Pose, is the most challenging pose of the asana. This technique requires a lot of concentration. Doing this correctly facilitates powerful blood flow, lessen or relieve fatigue, nervousness, asthma, constipation, diabetes, indigestion, and insomnia. It will also improve one’s mental concentration.
Here are the correct steps to do this:
First, begin by lying on your back, if you need a pillow under you knees to take the pressure off your lower back. Legs should be straight and together but not touching each other. The position of the arms should be also straight with palms facing the ceiling.
Second, start the four way breathing. Four-way breathing is filling both lungs and both sides of your diaphragm (four sections) completely. Deep breaths in tolerable counts should be equaled to the counts you exhale.
Third, start relaxing your body. When we pay attention to any of our limb, that limb feels some rest. So start relaxing from the head area and then travel through the whole body downward. Continue concentrating on relaxing your body with full complete breaths.
You can repeat the steps as many times as you wish. Remember that the main objective is relaxation. Always make sure that your mind is free from anything.
