Term: Shavasana


Sanskrit, "Corpse Pose." The technique of consciously relaxing the body, section by section. An exercise of immense value for fatigue, exhaustion, auto-immune diseases, insomnia, and certain types of high blood pressure. It is the deep dreamless, Delta wave sleep we should die into each night, and are reborn from each morning upon awakening.
