There will be an Art of Shavasana: Subtleties of Deep Relaxation and Meditation Retreat 20th - 25th March 2017 at Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama in Rishikesh, India.
Guided practices done in shavasana will be taught in proper sequence, so students can better absorb and assimilate the effects and awarenesses which the posture and practices have generated.
Printouts will be given for each segment taught. Each segment will be guided separately and then students will practice that segment. There will be homework practice between lessons.
Segments will include:
Shavasana, correct position
Exercise without Movement
Relaxation by first tensing each limb then relaxing
Subtler relaxations: right side, left side, finer tissues, internal organs
