Asanas For Relaxation

See general instructions about yoga practice

1. Makarasana: Lie on your belly, bring arms forwards, fold hands at elbows and place them near your head. Keep forehead on your hands and relax neck. Spread legs with soles facing upwards and outwards. Try to touch your entire body to the ground. Relax legs and every other part of your body. Close eyes with face down towards floor. Do not strain any of your muscles and keep on breathing normally in this comfortable position (crocodile pose). Concentrate your mind. Bring legs together, unfold hands and come back to original position after adequate relaxation. Poses For Relaxation 1
2. Shavasana: Lie on your back and spread legs apart with relaxed feet. Place hands a little away from your body with palms facing the ceiling. Keep fingers a bit flexed and spread a little apart. Tilt head on one side and close your eyes. Breathe normally and focus attention on your body. Make a deliberate attempt to relax each and every part of your body from head to toe. Concentrate on breath on relaxing your entire body. Breathing becomes slower as the body relaxes. A focused mind without any thoughts and relaxed body without any strain lead to a soothing state of total relaxation (corpse pose). Try not to sleep. Make up your mind to release the asana after adequate relaxation. Open your eyes, straighten neck, bring legs together and get back to sitting position with help of one hand. Poses For Relaxation 2
