Savasana, also spelt sirvasana or shavasana, is an asana (pose) usually done at the end of a yoga practice. This pose resembles the posture of a dead body and is, therefore, named after it. Sava means “corpse” in Sanskrit and asana means “pose”.
This pose seems quite easy, but it could also be one of the hardest since you need to completely relax your body and mind. Savasana pose is usually practiced after an active yoga session and instills deep healing and relaxation. For full effects, try it for at least 15 minutes. Savasana can be done for much longer, hours even! You can also practice this pose whenever you are extremely tired and need to get back to work quickly. It is refreshing and rejuvenating. If you feel you need some help with guiding you into the pose, try downloading a guided meditation app or compliment the pose with some calming, ambient music.
Thanks for the video feedback, Andrew. I’ll try to reduce the ‘ums’ and endeavour to look more directly at the camera lens rather than focusing on my face!
Enjoy the video guys, and please share.
