Begin each class with at least 5 minutes of Savasana. This helps them to let go of whatever problems and thoughts they have been facing throughout the day. The students will set their mood for the class. Use your voice to relax them like emphasizing body position, breathing and conscious relaxation. Ask the student to put out all the worries and thoughts from mind and only concentrate breathes. As they inhale, feel that they are bringing oxygen and Prana to the body to strengthen it. As they exhale, imagine that they are breathing out together with all the tension.
