Savasana is Power Yoga

Savasana…one of the best parts of a Yoga class! Whether used as a centering time at the beginning of a class or meditative relaxation time at the end of a class it is powerful. You may hear some Yogi’s jokingly say, “I only came for Savasana”. It is what hooked my husband into coming back to his second class and now he has been practicing for almost 1 year! We come to Yoga for many individual reasons, but we often stay with our Yoga practice for the same reason. That time to just be in our own space is so valuable in this fast paced world. We are blitzed with information overload and non-stop activity leaving our nervous system affected by the chronic stress of it all. Savasana is about integrating your Yoga practice and being transformed by it. It may be the only time spent in a meditative space for some people all week so it is such an important part of a Yoga class. My biggest tip for you – If you practice at home – don’t skip it just because you aren’t in the studio. Take time to allow your body and mind to reap the benefits this pose holds. A deceptively simple pose such as Savasana is where the real power yoga is found.
