The Importance of Savasana

The Importance of Savasana

“Lie down, heels together, palms up. Close your eyes.” Your teacher has put you into your final Savasana. She turns out the lights and leaves the room. Do you:

  1. Open your eyes immediately, hop up, hang up your mat, and flee the room?
  2. Lie there for a few minutes, worrying about “to dos” still on your list?
  3. Acknowledge the effort you just exuded and allow your breath to assist in clearing your head and calming your body?
  4. All of the Above.
Why We Teach Yoga

Why We Teach Yoga

One word: change. It's why we teach yoga.

We chose yoga because of the changes that occurred when we brought yoga into our own lives. Many people, even your teachers, began practicing yoga hoping to lose weight or affect some other physical change in their bodies. But months (and years) later, we find that we stuck with it because of the amazing mental and life changes that have come out of our practice.

A Catalyst for Change

A Catalyst for Change

We like to see fitness as a catalyst for change, and fuel for sustaining mind, body and life balance. It is a tool, and like any other instrument of change, can be used by amateurs or experts on a variety of levels to accomplish an end goal. So, whether you’re a couch potato considering beginning a regular fitness practice, an avid exerciser looking for another outlet for releasing energy and building strength, or an experienced practitioner looking to “kick it up a notch,” baby steps can help take you where you want to go in your relationship with yoga and yourself.
