Corpse Pose

Corpse pose known as śavāsana in Sanskrit is typically done at the end of an āsana class. Laying down on one’s back with the limbs outstretched  is the basic architecture of the pose. We withdraw our senses from outside stimuli and retreat inward. By doing so we relax and restore our being. This state is different than sleeping though it is normal to fall asleep in this pose when one is tired.  B.K.S. Iyengar describes śavāsana in Light on Yoga, “it is much harder to keep the mind than the body still. Therefore, this apparently easy posture is one of the most difficult to master”
