The period of rest and restoration in savasana (corpse pose) after the physical and mental focus of the sessions is vital to the efficacy of the practice.
This pose is where we enjoy the fruits of our labours: the meditative peace of mind that comes with wringing the stress and tension out of the body, and the feelings of union between mind, body, and soul that come from yogic asana, and pranayama.
Together, in a yoga shala or studio, or even during live workshops this shared energy is more easily enjoyed. However, the practice I am sharing is largely efficacious when applied to daily life, and often the full length session is difficult to squeeze into our daily routine.
Therefore I wanted to break down the practice offerings online and give each user the opportunity to take each part of the Yoga for Gut Health and Healing practice to explore in their own time and space.
Feel totally free to add the meditations on to the end of your physical practice for the full intended experience. You can also use them for a separate meditation when this is what you are in need of.
They are also available to anyone who does not want, need or is unable to practice the physical sequences and requires meditative healing in stillness.
