To the new yogis from my beginner's class this morning, welcome to YogiSticks! I hope this blog gives you a glimpse into the many facets of a yoga lifestyle, as well as some practical information on creating your own practice using the drawings and class outlines as a guide. I'd like to recommend some posts to my new readers: Why do Yoga?, Savasana, Om, and Beginner's Yoga as a brief overview of common yoga practices.
Again, welcome to the wonderful world of yoga. I hope you have found a "home away from home" with the studio and in my classes.
Usually, I lead my students into savasana with a brief relaxation technique - picturing something, mentally tracing the outline of their body, special breathing, etc. Last week, I used a guided meditation from the book "Complete Relaxation" by Steven Kravette. It's an older book (1979) and the writing is a combination of poetry and prose. After a great amount of positive feedback, I figured I should post the meditation - maybe you can use it, too!
