Nurturing our bodies for optimal health is something we all strive for. But calming our mind is also very essential to maintain a mind and body balance. And Yoga is the most natural way to achieve that harmoniously.
According to Yoga Journal, the corpse pose, or Shavasana, is one of complete relaxation that can help calm you down as well as relieve mild depression and headaches.
How to do the Shavasana Pose:
Begin by sitting on the floor with bent knees and feet on the floor.
Next, lift your pelvis off the floor, and use your hands to push the pelvis toward the tailbone before coming to rest it on the floor again.
While breathing in, push through your heels to stretch out both legs. Allow your groin to relax as you make sure your feet are angled out from the spine.
Now, allow your tailbone and your torso to relax, with your hands behind the back of your head to keep it from lying down with your spine.
Finally, lay your head down, staying in this position for about five minutes.
