    Signs of a good Savasana - BKS Iyengar
    In a good Savasasana there is a feeling of shrinkage of the skin and muscles for Savasana is after all movement of inward withdrawal.  There is at the same time feeling of elongation of the limbs and the body.  Elongation is felt through out the body but especially in the upper arm just above the elbows and in the calves just below the knees.
    A feeling of being suspended on a thin line awareness is also present.  The best sign of a good Savasana is the feeling of deep mental peace and pure bliss.

    Savasana is alert surrender of the ego.  One discovers oneself in forgetting oneself!
    We recommend . . . .
