After a dynamic sequence of yoga postures, opening and closing the gateway of the joints, lengthening and strengthening the muscles, flushing, detoxing and inverting the full physical body system savasana provides a sincere opportunity to experience deep peace and pure awareness.

To me, a good yoga practice will lead you to the magic of savasana (shuh-VAHS-ah-nah). In this guide I'm going to explain what Savasana is, what the benefits are and how to create a beautiful space using my favourite props and accessories.

I love this asana as it helps release stress and tension from my body while making me feel wonderfully relaxed and rejuvenated.

About Savasana

Often translated as Corpse pose (sounds morbid I know!) but it is the point where we can experience the feeling of completely letting go of the physical body. This body where we feel and hold all of our life experiences . More often the traumas or the moments of hurt are held in the very tissues of our physical body

After we move through the physical asana of yoga we have the opportunity to crack these stagnations and tensions open so that they can be released by completely letting go into gravity.

It is essentially the the death of the small self that can be caught up in the ego. Letting go of the grip can be the hardest part if life, this is where it becomes a practice.

Benefits of Savasana

Savasana allows us the opportunity to

  • Transform, to release of the hold that life has on us.
  • Awaken to a higher consciousness

  • Calm the nervous system and helps the digestive and immune systems.
  • Relax the mind and reduces stress.
  • Reduce fatigue and anxiety.

Setting up for the Ultimate Savasana

It is such gift to set ourselves up in such a way that we can completely let go of the physical body. ⁣This is where the magic happens 💫


Savasana is an opportunity to let go of the physical body and its harbored tensions.

This space provides us with the chance to transform and let go of what no longer serves us. For a few minutes, we can suspend judgment and just be.
