During Savasana, we have the chance to regroup, catch our breath, slow our heart rate, recover and refresh the body and the mind, after (and as part of) our practice.
Sometimes, we can slow our breath so much that it seems like we are hardly breathing, and the body cools (like a corpse).
Lying still on our mat, feeling the ground beneath us and behind us, is a great reminder that what is behind us (the ground, the earth, the past) can support us.
During Savasana in a class in Amsterdam, the yoga teacher described the transition from the corpse pose to the fetal position as one of a transition from death to rebirth.
It was a powerful image and an encouraging one, that gave optimism to the possibilities to start anew, to renew ourselves, at the end of every practice; another chance, a new beginning.
We can share this renewal...Sign up for our upcoming Yummy Arts Yoga Retreats! to enjoy yoga, arts & delicious food, exploring country after country, with a bunch of great new friends!
Peace and light,
