Savasana …. a Yoga ritual.. for mid week

Many yoga classes conclude in Savasana, the Sanskrit word for corpse, “Sava” and pose, “asana,” a deceptively simple practice of lying on the ground.

The act of holding still both in body and mind is a sizeable departure from the constant stream of stimulation and activity we’ve become accustomed to. It is for this reason that vigorous physical asana practice can often be the best precursor to corpse pose—a bait and switch if you will—as we lure the body into a state of rest by way of effortfully tiring it in preparation.
