I’m a working Mum and yogi. My three teenage boys often walk past while I’m practicing yoga and comment on my efforts. The pose they find the funniest is Savasana. They think I’m having a nap.
Savasana is the final resting pose in most yoga classes; it is the most important pose of the whole practice. It integrates the physical and mental benefits of your practice by drawing attention to the breath. By focussing on the breath, in the moment we slow down and listen to our bodies and by listening to our bodies we are much more likely to take better care of ourselves and feel more calmer and connected.
I find a morning practice finishing with a savasana makes me feel present and grateful for the day ahead.
