Savasana Validates Kangapoda
Yoga is all about the mind, body, and spirit. For those who practice, yoga is an intense way to blend mental and physical training including postures, breathing, and meditation in a journey toward a greater sense of oneness, peace, spirituality, and liberation. Yoga practitioners are also frequently beautiful and incredibly flexible, as they treat their bodies like their own works of art.
For many, Savasana (or the ‘Corpse Pose’) is a vital component of yoga practice. Savasana is not about sleeping, even though that sometimes happens. Instead, Savasana is considered to be a sort of active relaxation—a cool down—a deep mental relaxation where the practitioner reflects and recovers from the intense physical experience. During Savasana, the arms and legs are gently separated, the eyes are closed, and breathing is deep with an awareness of the chest expanding and contracting and all muscular tension being released.
The feet maintain their natural right angle during Savasana.
From a Kangapoda perspective, the feet in Savasana are incredibly revealing. Even the greatest of yogis’ feet maintain their natural right angle when they relax during Savasana. The feet are simply not designed to point for long durations. That position is strenuous and difficult to maintain.
For the preponderance of us less physically gifted, if a master yogi’s feet remain at a right angle while at rest, so too do ours. That is why Kangapoda is so important. With a Kangapoda Top Sheet, you may in essence achieve a Savasana-like relaxation under the tucked-in covers whether you are resting, sleeping, surfing the web, or watching your favorite TV show.
You don't have to save Savasana for the end of your yoga practice. Enter it when you need to find some silence or if you are having trouble falling asleep. Start at your toes and slowly work your way up your body as you consciously release and relax every muscle till you reach the crown of your head. And yes, of course, don't forget to breath.
