    Exquisite Corpse Pose is where exquisite corpse story telling meets yoga. The journey is a narrative that's being written. What's next? We’ll see.


    Commonly asked tidbits.

    What is exquisite corpse?

    Exquisite corpse: AKA exquisite cadaver (French: Cadavre exquis). Some call it revolving corpse. It is is a method of storytelling in which bits of the story are told by different authors. Example: Writer A starts the story, sends the last paragraph to Writer B, who then writes the next bit and forwards the last paragraph to Writer C and so on. The rule is the last writer only sees the last bit written by the previous writer and the narrative continues.

    What is corpse pose?

    Corpse pose is the final pose in many yoga practices. The practitioner assumes a resting state with their back on the floor, palms up, legs relaxed, and - well - they submit to gravity.

    What is Exquisite Corpse Pose in practice?

    ECP as a yoga practice can take on many forms. The simplest is a room full of yogis in a circle. Starting at twelve o'clock the first yogi calls the first 3 to 5 poses. The next yogi picks up from there and so on. The idea is to have everyone comfortable enough with the practice of yoga to organically build an hour long practice that flows and is balanced. Give it a try sometime. It's deadly fun.
