A 10-MINUTE SAVASANA EVERY DAY
FOR 30 CONSECUTIVE DAYS
Feb 15 – March 15, 2019
Savasana, or corpse pose, is an essential pose. Savasana allows the body to rest, the mind to become quiet and the nerves to calm. Props can support the body as you learn to consciously relax and refine your practice.
Savasana can be practiced in many ways, including focusing awareness on the breath or guided relaxation. The mind may have a tendency to wander or go to sleep, but the practice of savasana trains our minds to observe and be aware of the stillness inherent in each moment. We can then relax into the room, the mat, and ourselves – and let go of everything surrounding us. In savasana we release internal thoughts and move into a place of non-judgmental acceptance and awareness.
Savasana is its own reward — but you can share the gift and bring 2 friends for free after you complete the 30-day challenge!

The Subtle Struggle of Savasana
NIKKI COSTELLONOV 14, 2013
Don’t underestimate the art of relaxation. Savasana can be the most difficult pose of your practice.
Although it looks easy, Savasana (Corpse Pose) has been called the most difficult of the asanas. Indeed, many yoga students who can happily balance, bend, and twist through the rest of class struggle with just lying on the floor. The reason is that the art of relaxation is harder than it looks. It doesn’t happen on demand: You can’t just say, “OK, I’m going to relax, right now!” (Just ask the millions of Americans who have trouble falling asleep at night.) That’s why Savasana is such a gift. The pose sets up the conditions that allow you to gradually enter a truly relaxed state, one that is deeply refreshing in itself and that also can serve as a starting point for meditation.
