Corpse posture with bent legs repeated

When you come to the end of our back routine, the corpse posture variation we discuss at the beginning of the routine gives you a stable position to focus on your breathing and deeply relax your back. You don't want to skip this part. Stay in this posture for 25 to 30 breaths, making your exhalation slightly longer than your inhalation.

Covering your eyes can give a deeper relaxation effect. Use an eye bag or a scarf to cover your eyes to see whether you like it. (You can read more on eye bags and other props in Chapter 19.) Placing your feet comfortably up on a chair or a bed also adds a very calming effect and improves the circulation in your legs. It can even help improve your sleep.
