Savasana: lay down on your back, legs shoulder-width apart, arms next to your sides but not touching, palms facing up. Inhale to the count of four, exhale to the count of eight. Concentrate on your breaths. Start at your head and relieve any and all tension in your body. Move down your body joint by joint until you reach your toes. Notice the negative energy leaving your body to make room for the positive energy.
Savasana (Corpse Pose) is (usually) the last pose in your yoga sequence. This pose is intended to bring total relaxation to your body after a beautiful sequence you just completed. Even if you don’t have time to practice yoga today (shame on you!), you should still get into Savasana for 5-10 minutes or until you are completely relaxed — however long that may take. You’ll notice a difference in your mood and energy levels almost instantly.
Since it’s finally Friday, I know we all can benefit from Savasana. It’s time to wind down and enjoy the weekend!
