Savasana (Corpse)

A Pitta-Pacifying Yoga Pose

savasana corpse pose

You may want socks and a blanket for this restful pose. Lie on your back with arms and legs extended and slightly parted, palms facing up. Close your eyes and relax your body. Notice your breath becoming slower and softer. Allow yourself to go into a state of pure relaxation while maintaining consciousness.

Pitta Focus:

Simply enjoy the act of doing nothing at all. Maintain a comfortable body temperature. Rest the eyes by using an eye pillow. As the body relaxes, it cools quickly, and even as a warm pitta, it is important to avoid getting cold in Savasana.


Complete relaxation. Releases physical and mental tension, improves immunity, and allows your body to integrate your yoga practice.
