Savasana and savusauna

Savasana (shuh-VAHS-uh-nuh)

Also affectionately known as “corpse pose”, Savasana is a period of final relaxation at the end of a yoga session. Lying face up, palms are turned open as a gesture of receptivity. Eyes are closed and face muscles are relaxed. A vital part of Savasana is becoming aware of the rise and fall of your chest as you breathe, and scanning  your body for any tense muscles to relax. Arguably the most important aspect of yoga, it is a time for your focus to be turned inwards for reflection.

(It’s not uncommon to fall asleep during this phase. I unashamedly admit I have dozed off before, having reached such a state of relaxation that my mind just slips into sleep. While it’s not necessarily encouraged, falling asleep is not frowned upon, and fellow yogis will usually be quite understanding.)
