The Art of Stillness: Savasana & Assists

TWO WORKSHOPS with Nicole Bratt & Claudette Evans

It is often said that savasana is the most difficult pose. How can that be?! Savasana looks like a nap at the end of your yoga practice. Fatigued muscles get to relax, tense shoulders and jaws soften, and the eyes close to reflect a quieter state of mind.

However, this simple-sounding pose can be more challenging than you might realize; the body can cause distractions, the mind may try to resist the state of deep relaxation, and emotions may swell and overwhelm. Savasana is the ultimate act of conscious surrender, and it takes both practice and patience to master!

With the state of the world around us, cultivating the art of savasana is more valuable than ever. Even a few minutes in the pose can have powerful benefits.

Learning how to “do nothing” is a skill that can help you achieve increased wellness and nourish your deepest source so that you may bring your best self to the people, world, and work you care for most!

The Art of Savasana Workshop  |  1:00-3:30pm

Refining Restorative Assists Workshop |  4:30-7:00pm
