Therefore, never skip savasana, or corpse pose at the end of your practice (you can substitute other restorative options on occasion). Even if you’re cutting out of yoga class early, give yourself adequate time to rest. Ideally, at least 5 to 10 minutes.
While I wrote a blog on savasana last year, I also wanted to share this instructional video.
You can also assume savasana during practice to revitalize the body. For more information, please read last year’s blog.
