Savasana: A Shamanic Journey
Yoga master BKS Iyengar states that Savasana, seemingly the easiest pose, is actually one of the most difficult to truly master.
Are you having trouble relaxing in your practice or with teaching Savasana at the end of your classes? Many yoga practitioners experience restlessness, agitation, obsessive thoughts, and even fears in Savasana. Others find it difficult to physically relax and release. Is it possible to “empty the mind”? And is it a realistic expectation or even a good idea to strive for this?
This audio yoga download with yoga therapist Francois Raoult looks at these issues with Savasana. Francois teaches us practical techniques to guide both ourselves and our students into a deeper state of awareness in Savasana. When we are able to deeply relax and release our sensory organs, we enter the inner landscape. Practicing the art of surrender (isvara pranidhana) we are in contact with our true, innermost nature. Francois will inspire you to make the time for savasana.
