Namaskar!

I love relaxation at the end of yoga class. I would choose postures that are lying on the floor to encourage relaxation. My favorites are:

(1) Corpse Pose (of course) because the body can fully relax and begin to incorporate the benefits of the just completed yoga postures. I would include Abdominal Breathing in the Corpse Pose to relax and rejuvenate the body.

(2) Supine Knee Squeeze (wind-relieving) posture helps to relax the spine and refresh the internal organs and it feels very comfortable to the back and hips. There are modifications for pregnancy and the pose can be helpful to most anyone.

(3) Ankle Grasp posture allows the legs to stretch and recover and the joints to lubricate. This posture feels comfortable and can be modified to almost every body.

(4) Side Relaxation Pose is an option because it is safe for pregnant ladies, those with high blood pressure, and those with back issues that make Corpse Pose uncomfortable.

(5) Easy Pose allows a comfortable position for pranayama and gets the body back upright and awake prior to letting class participants drive home.

I choose these postures because they are adaptable to most all bodies, feel comfortable to the body, allow relaxation and recovery of the body and allow deep breathing. All postures have in common the adaptability to most all bodies and relaxation component, as well as easily adaptable to deep breathing.

Similarities also include supine position except Easy Pose which is a difference as it is a sitting posture. Other differences revolve around which parts of the body are stretched and relaxed during the postures, with legs the focus of Ankle Grasp, back the focus of Corpse Pose and hips and internal organs the focus of Supine Knee Squeeze.
