'The most significant and important posture or pose in hatha yoga is also the most ignored or lightly regarded. It is commonly known as the corpse pose, technically savasana or shavasana. It is customarily done after all those other stretches and positions that are part of a hatha yoga session.
An enlightened yogi once claimed the full benefits of yoga postures won’t be realized without a good corpse pose. Yet, in most yoga classes the corpse pose is given short thrift or marginalized due to time constraint.'
