Sleeping Deer Pose is a restorative pose, along child pose, savasana and legs up the wall. I love to stay in those poses for several minutes and meditate. One meditation technique I use is to close my eyes and walk through the body from feet up to the head, and pay attention to one part at a time and then relax it. My traditional order is: feet, shins, knees, thighs, hips, abdomen, chest, throat, cheek, face, third eye, brain, shoulders, upper arms, lower arms, hands. Over time, I’ve added or split up body parts, like having hamstrings, adductors, quads and abductors instead of just thighs.
Sanskrit is Mrigiasana.
