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.
