By Diana Ross, E-RYT 500, Founder of Breast Cancer Yoga.

The purpose of a relaxed pose may be obvious. Relaxation is intended to rid the body and mind of the negative effects of stress, unwanted thoughts, anxiety, fear, and then to create a state of rest. You will love this pose. Deep relaxation is a definite result of this well supported pose. It relieves anxiety and promotes well-being while balancing the healing response of the autonomic nervous system.

  • Promotes progressive muscle relaxation
  • Brings the nervous system back into balance
  • Strengthens the relaxation response in your day-to-day life
  • Relieves anxiety and promotes well-being
  • Facilitates parasympathetic healing response
  • Has a “moment-to-moment” experience for both internal and external
  • Reduces strain on sciatica joints


  1. Begin on back, then  roll onto right side, extend right lower leg and bend upper left leg, then place left knee onto large bolster or folded blankets. (don’t let foot dangle)
  2. Upper arm should be resting on a bolster or folded blankets shoulder height, then extend right arm straight out away from the body.

    I plan to restart practicing Yoga at home. When I took Yoga classes at the Y, last year, I was uncomfortable because others in the class were experienced Yogis. At some point, I may return to classes. But right now my Yoga comfort-level is withYoga Videos and the Breast Cancer Authority Blog.
