POTW: Corpse Pose

POTW is corpse pose, also known as savasana.

Intro: Restorative pose. This is typically done at the end of a yoga session. Some forms of yoga, like Bikram, incorporate savasana into the second half of their series. Most, however, just wait until the end.

Technique: Lie down on your back. Let your arms rest along your side, palms facing up. Relax your legs allow the outsides of your feet to fall towards the ground. Make sure that your core is completely relaxed.

Tip: If you have a larger frame (if you’re a built guy) then don’t force your arms to rest along your sides with your palms open. That’s not comfortable at all! Let your arms be as wide as they need to be so that you can lie comfortably with your palms facing up.

Modification: Bring the soles of your heels together for a gentle hip opener while you are in corpse pose.
