There are a lot of reasons to play dead at this time of year. Savasana is the ultimate resting pose. Every part of our body deserves to rest deeply.
The Iyengars developed many different types of savasanas for the parts of our body that have the most difficult time relaxing. BKS Iyengar taught us that the correct practice of savasana could bring incredibly benefits, 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.”
Savasana is a pose we do for rest and relaxation and for managing pain and injury! It is a pose that allows us to go deep within ourselves, to enter the concisions, subconscious and other worldly realms. Perfect for this time of year.
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 all-levels 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.
We plan that this zoom workshop will be recorded. Every registrant will receive access to the recording for one month. If you cannot attend the workshop live, you can pre-register and receive the recording.
