Life can be a whirlwind, and finding a moment to breathe can feel like a treasure hunt. That’s why we’ve curated three yoga poses that are your ticket to tranquility. 

Get ready to unwind, release stress, and embrace the serenity within. Let’s dive into these relaxation-inducing yoga postures.

1. Child’s Pose (Balasana):

How to:

  • Start on your hands and knees in a tabletop position.
  • Gently lower your hips back towards your heels, extending your arms in front or alongside your body.
  • Let your forehead rest on the mat, and breathe deeply, feeling a gentle stretch in your back.

Child’s Pose is your sanctuary of surrender. It’s a grounding posture that allows you to reconnect with your breath and release tension from your shoulders and spine. Stay here for a few minutes, letting the world outside fade away as you embrace the nurturing energy of this pose.

2. Legs Up the Wall (Viparita Karani): Restorative Yoga Poses

How to:

  • Sit close to a wall with your hip against it.
  • Lie back, swing your legs up against the wall, and let your arms rest comfortably by your sides.
  • Close your eyes, focus on your breath, and let the gentle inversion soothe your body and mind.

Legs Up the Wall is your go-to pose for instant calm. This gentle inversion promotes relaxation, relieves tension in your legs, and encourages a sense of peaceful surrender. Stay in this pose for 5-10 minutes, allowing the world to fade away as you bask in the restorative benefits.

3. Corpse Pose (Savasana): Essential Yoga Poses for Relaxation

How to:

  • Lie on your back with your legs extended and arms by your sides, palms facing up.
  • Close your eyes and allow your body to relax completely.
  • Focus on your breath, letting go of any lingering stress with each exhale.

Savasana, or Corpse Pose, is the ultimate gift of stillness. It’s a pose of complete relaxation that allows your body and mind to absorb the benefits of your practice. Spend at least 5-10 minutes in Savasana, relishing the serenity that comes with letting go.

These postures are your invitation to press pause, breathe deeply, and reconnect with the calm that resides within you. May your journey to relaxation be as soothing as the poses themselves. Give them a try and get ready to bring tranquility to those hectic moments in your life.

Breathe, release, and be well.

I started I Heart My Life from my kitchen table in a tiny London apartment in 2013.

I Heart My Life has gone through many transformations over the years, but its mission has always remained the same: we exist to teach you how to create a life that you love.


We believe that life's too short to be subtle, that everything you want wants you back and in elevating your everyday, whatever that means to you. This is the I Heart My Life Show.
