Savasana is not confined to being the final pose. In our Bikram Yoga class, Savasana is interspersed between the floor postures to gain energy and to reduce the chronic exhaustion that many of us suffer.
When used between the postures the mind shifts from high activity to physiological rest and muscular tension switches from being fully engaged to fully relaxed, and the heart rate increases and rapidly slows down. This moving from intense activity to a state of complete inaction becomes interval training for our body’s energy and building cardiovascular resiliency.
Over time, the nervous system adapts to stimulation with less reaction.
Benefits: Regulates stress hormones and restores brain activity.
Tip: Remaining aware and present will greatly improve your energetic stamina
