The 30th chapter of the book Light on Pranayama is titled Savasana(Relaxation).  This is a reading of that chapter. We have broken up the reading into 2 parts.  This 2nd part details the adjustments in Savasana, adaptations, precautions, watch-outs, as well as effects. Although it can be listened to at any time (and the chapter in the book can be read and re-read), we recorded this segment specifically to practice as a follow-along session. The practitioner is encouraged to find a clean and quiet space, and set aside half an hour for this. The first part of the chapter is recorded separately, and can be listened to at any time. 
The book has many detailed close-up images of various parts of the body as Mr. Iyengar positions himself in Savasana. The following is a link to a very short video of getting into Savasana that may be used as a quick reference.
