Reasons to love this posture for SUP : To lay back and float with eyes closed, releasing every ounce of doing...it's blissful.
Modifications : Hmmm. See "Reasons to love this posture". No doing. No modifications.
Personal Notes : See "Modifications" :)
Do you get where I'm going?
The challenge to this posture is letting go. Physical movement, visual movement, mental movement, all comes to a halt.
The eyes should close. If you're on the water, make sure you're in a safe zone. Anchored and out of boat traffic! Seriously, don't tune out the world in a hazardous way.
In a traditional Savasana/yoga practice, we're learning to resist sound and movement but let's be real. There is nothing traditional about SUP Yoga.
Be one with the sound and movement!
Find peace in the songs of the birds, the warmth of the sun, the gentle roll of waves under your board. As you lay there, in time and practice, the senses will relax too. You'll become the song and the sun, the water and the wind. This is Savasana.
