It’s the most often used phrase at the studio. Everyone talks about savasana. Sometimes they talk about one of Sabrina’s sassy, smart, southern sayings that both entertain and inform them with a subtle, mind blowing adjustment. But mostly it’s this,
‘During Savasana, I . . .
… actually may have drifted off
… had the best idea
… was more relaxed than I’ve ever been
… didn’t feel any pain
… remembered what I wanted to ask you!
… wasn’t quite asleep but not all here
… heard someone snoring, it might have been me
… had an epiphany about ‘something’
… felt so grounded and peaceful
… felt like I do after a massage
… forgot about my ________ problem.
… had no idea where I was
There are so many I can’t remember them all!
Please send us YOUR ending to that statement.
Savasana is the final 8 minutes of our yoga classes. It’s complete relaxation.
Holding still with maybe one or two shifts so that you can be as comfortable as possible doing absolutely nothing.
If you haven’t ever tried this before, you can definitely do this at home. Just hold still. Do nothing. No music, no tea, no petting the dog.
Eyes closed if possible. Or not.
There are no hard and fast rules other than to hold still as much as possible and just do nothing. We’ve got all kinds of explanations, benefits and results. But mostly it soothes your nervous system… which then makes everything else better.
I bet you don’t make it 3 minutes. ; )
Feel free to let me know if I’m wrong. It happens occasionally.
