10. Tree Stand > Savasana
From tree stand, come to a sitting position on the floor, then recline, so that you’re lying on your back. Place your arms a little bit away from your sides and your feet about hip-width apart. Relax, and let your legs rotate outward. Focus on relaxing all of your muscles, from the top of your head down to your toes as you take deep, relaxing breaths.
Savasana might not seem like an important posture, but it’s just as beneficial as any other in this series. While your body is in savasana, your muscles are processing all of the stretching and strengthening work that you just did. Relax, and let your body recover.
