Savasana for Addressing Your Pain
April 1, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Savasana = The Art of Relaxation
April 15th 7:30 – 9 pm
Savasana is a pose we do for rest and relaxation. Did you know that it can also help with managing pain and injury?
Over the decades of his practice, BKS Iyengar developed many different types of savasanas for the parts of our body that have the most difficult time relaxing. He taught us that the correct practice of savasana could bring many fruits, but only if it was embodied and felt on a cellular level. He once wrote that savasana “is not simply lying on one’s back with a vacant mind and gazing, nor does it end in snoring. It is the most difficult of yogic asanas to perfect, but it is also the most refreshing and rewarding.”
In this special workshop, we will cover savasana for the low back, neck and shoulders, hamstrings, groins and brain. Plus, savasana for general wellness.
This class is best for those with at least 3 months of consistent Iyengar Yoga practice. It is also beneficial for teacher and teachers-in-training who want to help their own students.
