Is Savasana important?

Updated: Mar 13, 2019

Savasana is probably one of my favorite yoga poses. I think I love it so much because it’s a restorative pose that allows me to simply lay on my back and do nothing but breathe. Really just be in the moment. Savasana is challenging because most people find it hard to lay still with absolutely no movement.

What is Savasana?

Savasana or corpse pose is usually practiced at the end of a yoga class and/or at the beginning of class to calm the body. Savasana is done by laying on your back with your spread comfortably and your arms resting alongside your body with your palms facing up or down.

Benefits of Savasana

  • Decreases anxiety and panic attacks

  • Improved memory, focus and concentration

  • Increases energy and productivity

  • Increased confidence

  • Helps to lower blood pressure

  • Calms the mind

  • Relaxes the body

Savasana is important!!

The root chakra is located at the base of the spine and draws energy from the earth. Savasana is a grounding pose that stimulates the root chakra. Your root chakra is related to survival, power, security, courage and resilience, savasana activates the power to heal your root chakra empowering you to face whatever life brings your way.

Savasana is like taking a mini vacation from life laying in this pose allows us to recharge our bodies. It’s the time we need to recharge and recover from day to day activities. For some savasana maybe the only time they can lay still and reap the benefits.
