Fitness Day 6 ~ Time for a rest - Corpse Pose

WOW! Cleansers! Day 6!



I hope you are beginning to feel very well connected with your body and breath.
Today I ask that you set some time aside and go through the first 5 practices in order, ending with today's asana



- The Corpse Pose -
Savasana
(shah-VAHS-anna) sava = corpse


Even relaxation can bring out the best in you — but make sure you do it properly. The Corpse Pose or Savasana may look like a simple relaxing pose that is done in between or after an Asana, but this excerise requires a lot of concentration and will develop through continued practice. This exercise, if done correctly, will stimulate blood circulation and will lessen or relieve; fatigue, nervousness, asthma, constipation, diabetes, indigestion, and insomnia.
It will also improve your mental concentration.



Getting into the pose:

1. Come to lie down on the back.
2. Let the feet fall out to either side.
3. Bring the arms alongside the body, but slightly separated from the body,
and turn the palms to face upwards.
4. Relax the whole body, including the face. Let the body feel heavy.
5. Let the breath occur naturally.
6. To come out, first begin to the deepen the breath.
Then move the fingers and toes, awakening the body.
7. Bring the knees into the chest and roll over to one side, keep the eyes closed.
8. Slowly bring yourself back up into a sitting position.

Yoga is invigoration in relaxation. Freedom in routine.
Confidence through self control. Energy within and energy without.
