Day 7 of Holiday Yoga-Rest in Savasana

You survived the Holidays!  Now it’s time for some well-deserved RELAXATION

Today’s pose is SAVASANA, which is the pose of total relaxation and surrender.  Try this pose at the end of a your yoga practice or right before bedtime.

Follow these simple steps for SAVASANA:

1. Come to a lying down position with your legs and feet falling gently out to the sides.

2. Stretch out your arms alongside your body with the palms facing upwards.

2. Relax your entire body, starting with your face all the way down to your toes.

3. Slowly breathe in and out from your abdomen, feeling your belly rise and fall with each breath.

4. Allow your body to come into a state of deep relaxation for 5 to 10 minutes.

5.  To come out of the pose, begin to the deepen your breath and slowly awaken the body by bringing some movement to the fingers and toes.

While lying in Savasana, enjoy this special Guided Cloud Visualization:

Close your eyes and imagine that you are lying on a puffy white cloud.  You’re all snuggled into the cloud, which is like a comfy blankie made of cotton balls.   You can feel the sunlight on your skin, as the cloud takes you higher and higher into the bright, blue sky.  With each breath, feel yourself sinking deeper into a state of peaceful relaxation.  You feel a deep happiness and love in your heart for the people in your life and the world you are a part of.  This feeling washes over you and radiates out to all parts of your body and mind and beyond…like a beautiful light shining out from your heart to the whole world…

Namaste and Infinite Love

I was fortunate enough to spend time with my family this Holiday Season and was able to share these poses and my love of yoga with the ones I love.

My greatest gift this holiday has been to be able to share my beautiful light through my book.

All the poses from the 7 Days of Holiday Yoga can be found in Lucinda’s Magical Yoga Adventure which is available HERE.

Special thanks to my amazing illustrator Lorena Isabel Suarez for all the beautiful illustrations featured in my book and this special series  of 7 DAYS OF HOLIDAY YOGA.
