OCTOBER POSE OF THE MONTH: CORPSE POSE

Corpse Pose, Savasana

October is here and with it a crispness to the air and the beginning of the holiday season! As the days get shorter and our schedules busier, it’s important to remember to take time for self-care. Which leads us to The Pose of the Month! Corpse pose is the culmination of your practice, and represents an opportunity to start fresh after each and every practice.

Here’s how to enjoy your Savasana:

  • Lie flat on your back with your arms and legs relaxed by your sides
  • As you unwind, allow your feet and hands to softly fall open
  • Soften around your eyes and relax your jaw
  • Allow your breath to become natural
  • Rest in the warm embrace of your practice

Benefits include:

  • Relieves stress and mild depression
  • Allows your body to relax
  • Helps alleviate migraines, fatigue and insomnia

“Within you there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself.” – Hermann Hesse
