Savasana

Ok, so here's to trying something new....
I'm going to copy an uploaded MP3 of me leading you through Savasana (Deep relaxation) and also copy up my written version.
This is my first time trying recording and Adam had to do a lot of editing on it (Thank you Adam) mostly because my equipment isn't pro and my cat is a loud eater.
Hope this works for you...

Here's the written version...

Savasana- Final Rest (Usually done for 3-7 minutes to allow the body to integrate all the poses and prana (Breath-energy) that the sequence has stirred up.

Read before performing:
Come lying down on your back on the floor. If you want you can put on a sweater or socks so you don’t get too cold.
Separate your legs and let your toes fall away from each other.
Rest your arms a little ways from the sides of the body with the palms facing up.
Begin relaxing the whole body starting with the tension in your feet. Tense the muscle group on the inhale and release it on the exhale. Keep moving up the body tensing and relaxing muscles until every muscle has been relaxed.
Release you weight into the floor and let your mind focus on your breath. Stay here for 3-7 minutes (Use a timer if needed).
To come out of Savasana slowly bring awareness into your fingers and toes by wiggling them.
Begin rolling your ankles and wrists and when you’re ready inhale the arms up over-head, stretching your entire body.
Roll onto your side into fetal position, cradling your head in your lower arm.
When you are ready come to sitting. Sit here breathing with your eyes closed for a few breaths and then relax.

Boy, really stretching my computer-bilities to the limit, hope this all works out. I gave it a shot anyways.
Namaste for the patience.
