Trying to Lose Weight? Savasana (Corpse Pose) Might be the Ultimate Solution. Find Out Why!

Yoga fanatics consider Savasana, also known as the corpse pose as a very special pose. In fact, this is the only pose that helps them to completely relax after they have put their body and mind through difficult poses. What makes this pose even more special? It requires absolutely zero physical strength and they get to do what they enjoy the most lying down!

Recently this pose got a lot of limelight following claims that it can help an individual lose weight. If you have already tried exercising and dieting, but in vain, it is common for you to be skeptical about the results that you may achieve from an activity that does not require you to do much (or nothing at all!).

Surprisingly, the claims are true and there are plausible reasons to it. Here, take a look.

Transports an individual to a state of meditation

If you know anything about yoga, you would know that it is an ancient science that begins by completely relaxing oneself. While in a restful state, your bodys tissues will be repaired leading to your body releasing stress and increasing the positive energy flowing through your body. This itself leads to more activity in the body, and thus, burning of calorie.

Calms and relaxes the body

Savasana or corpse pose also helps to replenish the cells and rejuvenate the body. Even if you have worked out intensely and laid down in Savasana, your body will be entering a state of rest, but will still continue to burn calories.

Helps to decrease anxiety

Anxiety is one of the primary reasons why individuals cannot lose weight even after exercising or dieting. In fact, most of them find solace in food, especially the fatty ones. They also get caught up in the vicious cycle of dieting, eating, feeling guilty and dieting again. Since Savasana promotes breathing, it helps to calm down the nerves and drastically reduce anxiety. Half the weight loss goals are achieved there!

Metabolism is increased dramatically

As your body feels relaxed, it starts releasing positive energy that leads to happiness. Did you know that happiness helps in burning more calories than any other weight loss methods? The reason is that calories, metabolism and happiness have a correlation and they all work together.

Fatigue and stress levels are lowered

Fatigue and stress can make you feel extremely lazy. You might not only skip doing your everyday chores, but also miss working out or going for your daily run. By practicing the Savasana pose daily, you will be able to bid adieu to your fatigue and stress. You will even find the energy required to hit the gym every day and get back in shape.

So, believe it or not, the corpse pose can actually help you get rid of your unwanted weight. Even though the process will be slow, but it will definitely reap results.

Want to perfect the corpse pose or Savasana yoga? Follow the given steps:

  • Lie down on your back. Do not twist or turn, but stay completely flat. Also, separate your legs.
  • Simply relax by keeping your hands by your side while your palms are facing up.
  • Close your eyes and slowly take deep breaths through your nostrils.
  • As you breathe, start to concentrate from your head all the way to your feet. Try to be conscious of every part and inch of your body. Without relaxing particular parts of your body, do not rush ahead.
  • As you inhale and exhale, think that your body is totally relaxed. Allow all of your worries, tension, fears and stress go away each time you exhale.
  • Practice it for 3 to 5 minutes every day.
