Savasana Corpse Pose Yoga

One of the main goals of a regular yoga practice is to be able to reach Samadhi, a state of deep concentration and meditation resulting in union with a greater reality … a greater universal consciousness. When we are in Savasana, we are working toward this state, feeling the benefits of our asana practice, resting our bodies in order to open up to our breath and release all of the tension and thoughts running through our minds — coming to a place of blissful nothingness.

One of the highlights of summer in Boulder, Colo., is the Hanuman Yoga and Music Festival, held on the banks of the Boulder Creek. Boulder is a spiritual Mecca and hot spot for yoga, and the festival is a representation of that booming community and its impact in the greater yoga world.

Yoga teachers from all over the country are brought in to teach alongside extraordinary local teachers to “raise the vibration” on a personal and collective level. Rain or shine, this event lights up the Front Range with music, dance, service and spirit.

Hanuman Presents is an on-going event presentation that brings Hanuman Festival teachers into local yoga studios across Colorado in an effort to keep the essence of the festival alive throughout the rest of the year. This weekend, Hanuman Presents welcomes guest teacher Giselle Mari.
