61 Point Relaxation

61 Point Relaxation is an accessible guided relaxation technique that can be performed whenever you are feeling stressed, overwhelmed, or anxious. It is also an impeccable practice for cultivating awareness, preparing for meditation, and deepening your connection to prana.

Perform 61 Point Relaxation laying down the comfortable laying position known as savasana. Allow your palms to face the ceiling and your body to relax deeply. As you move through the technique, you may feel a variety of sensations such as warmth or gentle pulsations. Enjoy these feelings as they are signs of prana moving healthily through your body.

One more tip – relaxation is a practice. If you don’t sink into a deep state of ease right away, try again a few more times. Through repetition you will learn how to turn off stressed states and turn on relaxation at will.
