Burrito Savasana

Ironically, during Wintertime the cycle of the seasons, short days and long nights draw us inwards, society and our culture draws us outwards.

Christmas is probably one of the busiest times of the year with the parties, food, decorations, entertaining family, jolly music and ramped up advertising bombarding our senses from all angles.

However, we need to find a balance between what our bodies are telling us they need and what is expected of us over the festive period and one way to help you do that is through the Restorative Yoga pose Burrito Savasana.

Burrito Savasana is one of my favourite Restorative poses, especially with the headcave as shown in the photograph. It’s basically all about wrapping the whole body so that it feels supported and comfortable, and manipulating the nervous system into relaxing. It’s a great grounding pose and is particularly effective for Vata disturbances.


So, get wrapped up this Christmas – Burrito Savasana is my gift to you

If you love this pose as much as I do, why not come along to my Restorative Yoga class at Aditi’s Loft, Moortown, Leeds? The new term starts on Wednesday 17 January 2018 from 10am until 11.15am. The four week course costs £15 drop in or £50 for the whole course.

Space is limited to five people, so contact me  if you’d like to book your place.

I specialise in working with women one to one and enjoy being part of their journey of reconnection and self-discovery. I support women to find more balance and harmony in their lives by deepening their inner connection to their own body’s needs, helping them cope pre-conception, with fertility issues, prenatally, postnatally or during times of transition, grief or loss and helping alleviate the symptoms of menstruation, perimenopause or menopause.

If you would like to develop your home Yoga practice through my One to One Yoga Support Programme or feel that you would benefit from some nurturing allwoman support, please get in touch.
