Question: Sometimes we start the class with a Savasana, why do we do that?
Whenever we take a break to refresh our mind, we are unable to switch off from our usual business of the mind and body. We forget that we are carrying the same body and mind with us to our place of relaxation. Women play several roles in their lives. Our mind loves to associate itself to its favorite roles and it doesn’t let go of these roles even during relaxation. Even while practicing asanas we are often distracted by our thoughts relating to our chores and responsibilities. We are continuously dwindling in tremendous frequencies of various roles. All we have to do is get on the mat, disengage from the roles and penetrate within yourself. Savasana is the time to disassociate ourself from these roles and re-energize ourselves. Think about the value of human life bestowed upon you in this life. Contemplate on it as Yoga suggests. We cover our soul with so many notions, like the way we protect our bare body from the world by covering it with many many clothes. Savasana is the time to strip ourselves off these notions one at a time and look at our true self. The relationship between the mind and body should be like that of a mother and a sleeping baby. The mother maintains silence
Lots of love,
