The idea for a full body experience came to me during my 200-hour Yoga Training at West End Yoga Center in Allentown, PA in 2017. We were working on a segment on Yoga Nidra (yoga sleep). During that session we had sand bags on our hips and eye pillows to help stay grounded and focused. It was a very nice practice, observing your thoughts come and go, welcoming the darkness and learning to observe your emotions while following your mind's journey. I began craving the same feeling I felt on my hips and eyes throughout my body and that was when the idea of a "bigger sand bag " came"to me.
HOW it works
Resist the urge to move for several minutes
Scan your body, your breath, your thoughts
How does it feel to be motionless after your yoga practice?
You will begin to feel the Savasana blanket ground you in a soothing way. The heavy weight helps your mind stay on your mat and not drift to the past, to the future or to your to-do-list.
