Savasana: The Vast Ocean of Rest 

Ayurveda rests on three pillars of health: diet, moderation of sensual pleasures and sleep (as deep rest).  Modern times thwart our ability to consistently be supported by these pillars.  This day long immersion will explore savasana 1.) as a practice of pratyahara, 2.) to retain ojas (vital energy) , and 3.) to re-direct prana. It is a precise, conscious and step-by-step methodology that can prepare the body and mind for higher states of awareness. We’ll learn:

  • What savasana truly is and why it matters
  • how to breathe during savasana 
  • the neuroscience of savasana
  • three different savasana techniques
  • savasana as a preparation for Yoga Nidra
