on the whole body

Lie comfortably on the back. The feet fall loosely away from each other. The arms lie relaxed beside the body and palms face up. If necessary, place a pillow under the head and the knees to ensure neck and lower back are comfortable. Close the eyes and relax the eyelids. Feel the whole body from the toes to the head. > Guide the attention to each part of the body, and gradually and consciously relax the whole body. Feel a sense of inner quiet and peace. > If it is more comfortable, relax by lying on the abdomen.
Leads to physical and mental relaxation. Relaxation is an important prerequisite for the optimal performance and benefits of the Yoga exercises. Therefore, Anandasana is practiced at the beginning and end of each exercise session as well as between the exercises.
