Savasana is more than a quick cat nap at the end of a yoga session, and it sometimes takes people years to figure that out.

Savasana, also known as corpse pose, is meant to eliminate any final tension you’re holding in the body at the end of a practice. By the end of your practice, your body and mind should be tired enough to relax into Savasana fully. Think of it as the way you used to fall asleep on the drive home from a long day playing at the park as a child. Or the way a dog might plop down immediately for a nap as soon as he returns from a long walk. The wrapping up should be the calmest and quietest part.

BUT, it’s not always so easy. We have a ton going on in our lives, and a lot of thoughts coursing through our minds.

“How much longer will we be here?”
“Oh gosh, I’m so thirsty, would it be weird to sit up and have a sip of water?”
“I wonder if __ has texted me back yet…”
“How much time did I put in my meter? I hope I don’t get a ticket.”
“Oh god, I don’t want to go to work today.”

I get it. I’ve been there. We all have! It’s totally normal to have trouble focusing on Savasana and it takes practice!

1.) Stretch out and be sure that you’re totally comfortable. Need a blanket on top of you? Grab it. Need a bolster under your neck? Make it happen.

2.) Take one final deep, deep breath. Let your parasympathetic nervous system know that you’re safe and all is well.

3.) Do a body scan. Are you clenching your jaw? Arching your back? Take a minute to mentally move from head to toe and make sure every part of you is as relaxed as it can be.

4.) Just be. Some days this will be easy, while some days it’ll be a bit trickier. Allow yourself to observe what you’re feeling, accept the emotion, then try to move on. This part takes practice. One tactic you can try is to take a moment to express gratitude. Think of small things that you might be guilty of taking for granted, then move to big things that really impact your life. Gratitude is powerful.

5.) Set an intention. Perhaps, you do this at the beginning of your practice, perhaps you save it til the end. Either way, setting an intention is a good way to send focus toward a positive notion or idea that makes you enthusiastic and can set you up for success as soon as you arise from Savasana.

Dear Reader,

Incredibly, 75 to 90 percent of all doctors office visits are related to conditions that are the result of stress. Unchecked stress can wreak havoc on the body, and in chronic cases it can lead to heart disease, diabetes, weight gain, mental disorders, digestive disorders, and even cancer. This is possible because chronic stress changes our hormones, which can cause an increase in inflammation, which is the root of many medical problems.

We can’t always control the amount of stress that enters into our lives, but we can change how it is we react to them. The human body is designed to respond to stress, but it is how we handle it that causes the problem.

With practice, we can learn how to release some of our stress through many productive measures.

Here’s are some ways:

Exercise and Yoga
Exercise is one of the best stress relieving activities because it releases endorphins, the chemical in the brain that acts as the body’s natural pain-killer. Exercise also helps to improve sleep, which in turn helps to relieve stress.

Meditation
Meditation is proven to decrease stress, worry, and anxiety through a mindful practice of centered relaxation and breathing (breathing exercises below).

Nutrient-Dense Diet
A diet rich in essential vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, electrolytes, amino acids, and antioxidants works to help your brain handle stress, which has the same effect on the entire body.

Time in Nature
Spending time outside in nature has a calming effect on the mind and body, and it helps to create a sense of wellbeing.

Breathing exercises have long been used for stress relief. Whether you are in the car, in a tense situation, or seated in a relaxed position in a quiet space, breathing exercises have an immediate effect.

Give these exercises a try:

Pursed Lip Breathing
Take a breath for about 2 counts. Then pucker your lips and exhale for 4 counts. Do this for a few rounds.

Diaphragmatic Breathing
Put one hand on your chest and the other on your belly. As you breathe in deeply for about 2 seconds, your belly should stick out a bit. Feel the air expanding your stomach and then breathe out slowly through the lips.

Yoga Breathing
Place your right thumb over your right nostril as you breathe in through the left nostril. Then take your right ring finger and place it over your left nostril as you exhale from the right one. Then switch sides.

4-7-8
Inhale for a count of 4. Hold the breath in for 7 counts, then release it in 8 counts.epeat this at least three times.

Breath Counting
Take a few deep breaths, then settle into a pattern of “normal” breathing. When you exhale, count “one.” The next time, count “two.” Do this until you have exhaled (and counted to) five, then start the pattern over.

Dear Reader,

Sitting at a desk for 8 hours a day places SO much strain on the lumbar spine and contributes to neck, shoulder, and lower back pain. Dealing with pain while at work is especially difficult because it can make you feet irritated, distracted and generally in a bad mood This is what I want to help you avoid!

While I can’t do anything about helping you find a job where you don’t have to sit at a desk and answer emails all day (sorry), what I CAN do is offer you some solutions to integrating yoga practice at work.

The major areas that we’re going to want to focus on are the back, fingers, wrists, hips, and shoulders. Once you start practicing these while on the job, you’ll be surprised how much tension you hold — and how much tension can be released!

One of the best tension-relieving stretches is the good old fashioned forward fold. With a slight bend in your knees (or a big bend), let yourself fold forward at the hip joint and relax EVERYTHING. Stay here for at least a minute and just hang. Take deep breaths and with each one picture yourself letting go a little bit more.

Taking the time to decompress and allow some new blood flow is sure to get you back on track and ready to tackle your next project or meeting!
