Relaxing Postures -
Relaxing Posture Standing Position :
Stand straight keeping your feet flat on the ground with your heels slightly apart. The bases of your big toes should be touching. Distribute your weight evenly between both of your feet. You can achieve this by lifting and spreading your toes.. Repeat this till you feel that your weight is evenly distributed and you are completely balanced.
Supine Position :
Lie flat on the back (supine) with the arms about 6 inches (15 cm) away from the body, palms facing upward.Move the feet slightly apart to a comfortable position and close the eyes.The head and spine should be in a straight line and the limbs symmetrical.Make sure the head remains straight with the nose pointing upward.Take a gentle breath in, and on the exhalation, relax the whole body becoming completely still.Become aware of the natural breath.
Benefits Of Relaxing Position -
Challenging activities stimulate the body's sympathetic nervous system, which provokes what's known as the "fight-or-flight" response. This puts your normal body functions on hold (such as digestion), while your body prepares for survival. Yoga creates the opposite reaction. Relaxing your body and mind stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, also known as the "rest-and-digest" response.
