Fertility Yoga: How To Do a Corpse Pose

Corpse Pose

Bryan McCay

  1. Lie on your back with your legs wider than hip width apart, arms wider than shoulder width apart, palms up, and eyes closed.
  2. Breathe slowly, deeply, and completely into your belly and expand your chest to fill your lungs.
  3. After a brief pause, exhale slowly, with control, allowing the breath and belly to release.
  4. Repeat this breathing pattern for 3 to 5 minutes. Envision a wave coming to shore with every inhalation, and the tide returning to the ocean with every exhalation.
  5. Return to normal breathing. Roll to one side with knees bent, and use your hands to roll up to sitting before opening your eyes.
