Yoga corpse pose is also called Mrtasana. It is one of the basic pose in yoga which works well for ab muscles. Here we explain to you in detail.
In order to do the yoga corpse pose, first of all your body should be placed in a neutral position. Sit on the floor together with your knees bent, feet on the floor, and lean back onto your forearms. Lift your pelvis slightly off the floor and, along with your hands, push the back with the pelvis toward the tailbone, then return the pelvis towards the floor. Inhale and gradually extend the correct leg, then the left, pushing through the heels. Release each legs, softening the groins, and see that the legs are angled evenly relative for the mid-line of your torso, and that the feet turn out equally. Narrow the front pelvis and soften the reduced back.
With your hands lift the base of the skull away from the back of the neck and release the back of the neck down toward the tailbone. If you have any difficulty doing this, support the back of the head and neck on a folded blanket. Broaden the base of the skull too, and lift the crease of the neck diagonally into the center of the head. Make sure your ears are equidistant from your shoulders.
Reach your arms toward the ceiling, perpendicular to the floor. Rock slightly from side to side and broaden the back ribs and the shoulder blades away from the spine. Then release the arms to the floor, angled evenly relative to the mid-line of torso. Turn the arms outward and stretch them away from the space between the shoulder blades. Rest the backs of the hands on the floor as close as you comfortably can to the index finger knuckles. Make sure the shoulder blades are resting evenly on the floor. Imagine the lower tips of the shoulder blades are lifting diagonally into your back toward the top of the sternum. From here, spread the collarbones.
In addition to quieting the physical body in Savasana, it’s also necessary to pacify the sense organs. Soften the root of the tongue, the wings of the nose, the channels of the inner ears, and the skin of the forehead, especially around the bridge of the nose between the eyebrows. Let the eyes sink to the back of the head, then turn them downward to gaze at the heart. Release your brain to the back of the head.
Stay in this pose for 5 minutes for every 30 minutes of practice. To exit, first roll gently with an exhalation onto one side, preferably the right. Take 2 or 3 breaths. With another exhalation press your hands against the floor and lift your torso, dragging your head slowly after. The head should always come up last.
