Do this before Sleep

Shava Asana ( Yoga )

Shavam means corpse. Lie on your back, palms facing upwards.

Feel like a dead body, which can not hold into anything.

You can not hold on to wealth nor worries. Completely let go of your body weight feeling it being borne by mother earth.

Now bring your awareness to the back of your body and the points of contact between your body and the earth.

First bring awareness to your heels. Feel the weight of your heels melt and sink into the earth.

Systematically bring your awareness to your calf muscles, thigh, bottoms, back, back of the arms, shoulders, back of the neck and head and feel the weight of each part melt and sink into the earth.

Feel any heaviness, pain or tightness in the body melt away. Bring your awareness to your breath and simply watch your breath for 5 to 10 minutes.

If the mind wanders gently bring back to your body and your breath.

Do this before going to bed for a deep restful sleep.
