Corpse pose. This healing act with the body on the ground, palms up beside the hips and feet splayed open can take a day of stress and let it melt away. But what if we could take this pose out of the yoga studio and perhaps into nature? Find a picnic table under a big tree, crawl up and lay down giving thanks for the sun on your face. Find a fresh patch of snow and lay your body down on the cool ground, being the first shape to touch the fallen white flakes. If you're lucky enough to have green grass, choose a perfect location and surrender your body to the ground. Focus on the air leaving your body and coming in. Be one with mother earth. Give thanks for gravity and light and fresh air to breathe.
