sava = corpse
Also called Mrtasana (mrit-TAHS-anna, mrta = death)
- Lay down flat with a lift under the top section of your neck and the bottom of the skull (approx two finger widths from base of skull upwards above/on lift) and a bolster under your knees (create one from rolled blankets if needs be) and place on top of yoga block or other even foundation of approx 10-15cm high). Rest the backs of the heels on an even firm support (10cm high approx)
- Turn the palms of the hands up with your hands away from your hips (1 foot approx) and tuck the shoulder blades under towards the feet.
DURATION: Several minutes
FOCUS: Allow yourself to detect any waves of warmth or tingles in the sensitive body zones (soles of feet, backs of knees, inner thighs, gluteal creases – the meeting of the thighs and buttocks, the genitals, spine, tummy, soft chest skin, throat and face). Allow those sensations to circulate and settle and let the mind rest.
