Savasana, also known as Corpse Pose, is usually practiced at the end of regular yoga session. It seems easy to do but mastering Savasana requires practice and patience. This pose is about consciously letting go and allowing the body and mind to experience deep relaxation. Let's learn how to properly do Savasana and the benefits it offers.

How to do it properly

1. Find a comfortable and quiet place to practice yoga. To practice Shavasana, lie down on your yoga mat.

2. Extend your legs comfortably apart, allowing your feet to naturally fall to the sides. Keep your arms alongside your body with palms facing upwards. Relax your shoulders and try to clear your mind. 

3. Stretch your neck and ensure your head is centred and relaxed. 

4. Close your eyes to turn your focus inward. Allow your body and mind to relax. 

5. Inhale deeply through your nose and exhale slowly through your mouth. Practice this deep breathing exercise for a few minutes.

6. As you continue to breathe deeply, consciously release any muscular tension throughout your body.

7. Practice Savasana for 5-10 minutes.
