The yoga Corpse pose or Shavasana is a great pose to relax. It has plenty of benefits for health and well-being. It is quite challenging even if it does not seem so.

You need a lot of practice, patience and commitment to benefit from deep relaxation poses and meditation. Shavasana is for many people the most difficult pose of their practice.

It looks easy but many practitioners struggle just lying on the floor. The art of relaxation is harder than it looks. The yoga Corpse pose is a great starting point for beginner yogis.

Some students struggle to relax in Shavasana, others fall asleep. The goal of this pose is to remain conscious and alert while still being at ease.

Remaining aware while relaxing allows you to deal with stress and anxiety effectively. This releases any tension in the body and the mind. It improves your sense of physical and emotional well-being.

This is a great time to become aware of the benefits of yoga and reflect on your practice. To make the most out of your yoga practice, why not share it with other yogis on the same journey as you?

Shavasana is a powerful posture to rest deeply, calm the mind, and quiet the brain. Plus it increases focus, improves the mood, circulation and respiration.

Practice the yoga Corpse pose to learn deep relaxation and restoration. It is very important for meditation and a true experience of yoga. It takes patience and practice to fully surrender and let go.
