The need to rest?

Posted: Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

The appropriateness for Savasana

Does your practice leave you desiring Savasana – the corpse pose?
Do you tend to fall asleep in Savasana?
How do you feel 1 hour later after practice? 2 hours after? the next morning?

Savasana is considered one of the most difficult asana is in my observation overtaught and too often desired at the end of a class. Savasana is meant to allow the mind to settle on the stillness, the space, and the unveiling of your true nature. It is not a pose for the purpose of recuperation and rest after an “invigorating”, challenging or hard practice.

Savasana – the seat of the corpse, from the root word Shava. One merely dies away the “old” self to move into the openings created in your practice. A state of renewal. One digests the byproducts of their practice, and absorb the results of practice. It is recommended the practitioner turns their awareness inwards. This can purify oneself of sensory distraction. With a lessening of the senses distracting the relaxed focus of the mind, one can become more aware of their body’s subtle movements, breath and the state of mind. It can be used as a preperatory stage to meditation.

I recommend Savasana for evening practices only!

Meditation does not require Savasana. It is suggested. You can participate in your practice moving through a sequence that is inspired from one’s inquiry into freedom. A sequence derived by oneself must be carefully monitored for pitfalls such as  attachment, desire, aversion, and violence. I recommended for a Yoga practice, one be advised by a teacher who knows you and understands your intentions for practice; and has a good working understanding of  your constitutional nature (Prakriti) and tendencies for imbalance (Vikriti). This is the beautiful combination of Yoga & Ayurveda.

Then your practice supports you. A sequence ending with seated postures, the true meaning of asana – meaning seat, is toward the end of your practice. Here your seat is prepared from the work accomplished in the standing and dynamic movements. The seat one prepares is harnessed with good circulation of Prana. One can then sit for periods of time with compassion, avoiding imposition to sit when the seat is uncomfortable or numb. This is key to the practices of pranayama and meditation.

Back to Savasana. If the body and mind drop into sleep during savasana then one risks the pitfalls of losing the connection to consciousness. Physically and energetically the body goes cold, looses the space and actually collects unwanted stagnation, especially in the lungs and heart. Repeated practice of going to sleep or dozing off during Savasana can create long term challenges often not notice til many years later. If you fall asleep more times than not, please pay attention to your body’s signals and head the body’s need for rest by looking into your lifestyle and the way you choose to live your days. Are you cheating your body of it’s natural desire to be in harmony?

The results of your practice should leave you feeling:
  • Warm, Invigorated, and Light
  • A feeling of ease with activities of daily living
  • Feelings of fluidity with arising from sleep the next day
  • Energized circulation
  • Grounded, with sharpness and clarity of mind; relaxed focus of attention
  • Clear senses.Emotional and mental fluidity

 

A forest’s transformation

Posted: Friday, April 13th, 2012

We are a microcosm of nature’s and the universe macrocosm.

The forest is a wonderful example of transformative processes.

A forest grows and eventually the plants and trees begin to compete for light and life force energy. Only the strong survive, in this case the ones viable enough or have made that strong connection. This could include not only the native plants and trees but the invasive ones as well. Then fire is born from a spark of lightning or human existence. The fire destroys the living beings that are unable to survive the destructive nature of the fire. But some things survive. This can happen in our practice, depending on how we focus our practice, our intention and Prana.

Then nature begins to restore harmony to the forest, with new flows of water, air flow through the trees, and new access to light. This creates a whole new environment which helps restore the forest to a new phase, most of the time to a much healthier one.

By restoring harmony, the forest can feel a sense of rejuvenation. After periods of restructuring and growth, the forest lives with new levels of being. This happens above and below. So is above, is below.

Hopefully you have been practicing to remove the stagnation and resistant areas of life force circulation.  You have cultivated your Prana in a way that serves your transformative fire, Agni, and facilitated the destruction and removal of old patterns, restrictions in your body and breath, thoughts and emotions, and any blockage keeping you from your true self.  Growth is a destructive process. The next step in restoration.

Restoring the Prana into the channels is key as this helps to move out the toxins and restrictions in the deeper tissues, and transports them for elimination. To enliven stagnant channels that have limited your full potential on all level. To bring new LIFE!
