Lying down in semi-supine
Spend 10-20 minutes each day taking active rest. It helps your back regain springiness, mobility and length.
Lie down on your back and on a mat. Place some books under your head. You want the right amount of books: too many would constrict your throat and too few would put pressure on your neck.
Bend your knees so that they point towards the ceiling and have your feet flat on the floor and slightly apart.
Place your hands on your abdomen and apart from each other. Alternatively, the palm of your hands can cover your eyelids.
You can choose to have your eyes open on your eyelids closed. You want to stay awake to become aware of yourself and be aware of your surroundings: the colours, the sounds or smells in the room and beyond.
Gravity is your friend: allow your whole body to settle towards the floor.
