Thirty-One Point Relaxation
The Relaxation is called Shava-yatra, or (literally “corpse-journey”), because in this exercise one drops the shthula sharira (the physical body) and moves into the sukshma sharira, (the subtle body). The 31-point -point relaxation is one of the best relaxations because one can focus specifically on major energy points in the energy body. Some of these points are Ajna, Vishuddha, Anahata, Manipura, and Svadhisthana chakras, and the other points are called marmas. The marmas are energy centers where these energy channels (nadis) converge. Sometimes because of stress and negativity, the flow of energy open to these chakras and the marmas become constricted. The 31-point exercises free the circuitry so that Prana can flow more freely
Kathleen will lead a short asana practice to prepare the body for the Journey of Yoga Nidra.
