This is everyone's favorite pose. This pose can be used to start a yoga class. It is always practiced at the end of a yoga class especially after a more vigorous yoga class. It helps to restore and balance the body and mind at the end of class. The pose is also useful in relaxing a nervous body. This pose can be done alone but should not be used for meditation purposes as you may fall asleep. Here's what you do:
Find a quiet place where you will not be disturbed. Lay your mat on the floor and maybe place a soft blanket on top. You may want to find a bolster for under your knees, eye pads and maybe a neck roll. Put on some quiet music without words. Or maybe a nature noise that helps you to quiet down. Now close your eyes, clear your mind, and enjoy the nxt 5 - 20 minutes of pure bliss.
Afterwards, roll onto your side and allow your body to slowly come back to awareness. Then slowly rise and take a few deep breaths to replenish the oxygen in your body. Congratulations! You now completed savansana.
