Savasana is a wonderful posture because it has some amazing benefits and can be done by everyone. So, lie in Savasana for at least a few minutes each day and rest your body and mind. It’s the best kind of relaxation you can give yourself.
If I were to do only one yoga practice for the rest of my life, it would be pranayama, or breath-control. Yogic breathing techniques are incredibly powerful. They can transform stress and anxiety into calming surrender, and they can energize a lethargic mind and body.
You may not know it, but you may have already practiced the hardest yoga pose there is: Shavasana, or corpse pose. This is the final pose of any yoga practice, also called relaxation pose. It is called the hardest yoga pose, because in Shavasana you are meant to completely surrender all physical and mental effort. That’s hard to do.
