Relaxation Yoga Pose (Savasana)

by -

Perhaps the most difficult posture of all! We may think we have completely relaxed and released tension but, in fact, are still hodling on somewhere, somehow.

Lie flat on the back with arms resting comfortably along the sides of the body, palms upward. Legs are extended and slightly turned outwards.

Find your most comfortable place by moving your ankles and feet, spine and head. Do you need a pillow for more comfort perhaps?

  • Close your eyes
  • Relax the jaw and let your chin drop down
  • Become aware of your natural breath and its rhythm.
  • Let the floor support your body and breath deeply
  • Remain here for 2 to 15 minutes


  • Relaxes the entire psycho-physiological system
  • Quiets heart and pulse rates
  • Develops BodyMind awareness

  • "Andrea quite literally changed my life, by working with me on a personal level she gave me the small changes my body needed. I met Andrea and worked with her because of extreme abdominal pain that occurred every month, some months worse that others. The advice given by Andrea enabled me to make small and manageable changes that have resulted in a pain free year for me and increased energy and sense of well being. "Clare
