Yoga Pose Breakdown: Savasana/Corpse Pose

Savasana/Corpse Pose
 
1. Lay down onto your back. Keep neck long and chin tucked. Create space for your underarms to breathe.
2. Let your body feel heavy here. Feet rest towards the corners of your mat and can fall open in opposite directions.
3. Close your eyes and focus on your breath. Stay here for 5-10 minutes.
4. To come out roll to your side and curl into a little ball. Don’t rush coming up, take your time.
 
Pose Benefits: Savasana naturally boosts the immune system and restores and relaxes the body’s energy by calming the nervous system. This pose also calms the brain and helps relieve stress and mild depression. Corpse pose also can reduce headaches, fatigue, insomnia, and reduces blood pressure.
