Savasana is the final resting pose for any and all yoga practice. The word mean’s corpse pose and that’s what’s it all about; lying dead to the world. I could go go on and on about the benefits, or you could just click here and here. This article in Yoga Journal describes how to get into Savasana.
“Corpse pose restores life.
Dead parts of your being fall away,
the ghosts are released.”
Yoga in Costa Rica = amazing Savasana
Type A people can have a hard time relaxing. They’re the ones wishing they could sneak out of class the last few minutes to do something “more important”. Type B’s start the class wondering when Savasana’s going to start. I used to skip it when I practiced at home. I felt silly lying on the living room floor, but then I tried it and it felt pretty good. Now I usually use a soothing song so I don’t have to worry about the time. My favorite Savasana is outside on a warm day after a sweaty and vigorous practice (the sound of ocean waves doesn’t hurt either). Nothing feels better!
