Savasana

Seal your short practice with a relaxing rest pose.

  • Lie on your back, and close your eyes. In order to relax and open your body fully, extend your arms a few inches away from the body, palms facing up. Put about 15 to 20 inches between your heels, allowing your feet to fall open with your toes pointing out. Actively shrug your shoulder blades down toward your hips. Lengthen through your spine as much as possible, relaxing your lower back toward the floor.
  • After you've found a comfortable position, stay there for as long as you want, if your schedule allows for it. If you're short on time, remain in Savasana at least until your heart rate slows down and your breath returns to its natural, soothing rhythm.
