It is up to you as the teacher whether you choose to remain in Savasana once you have guided your students to this pose or whether you choose to sit up in Sukhasana, with eyes closed or find a Drishti point on the floor to focus your gaze.
What is most important is that the evaluating teacher can see you clearly guiding your students in and out of Savasana safely and appropriately and that you are honouring the time for your students to stay in Savasana, which is 10 minutes in total, with 5 of those minutes in silence. Some teachers find it easier to keep track of the time from an upright position, while other teachers prefer to remain in Savasana with their students, for grounding, at the end of practice.
Whichever you decide, remember you are still holding space and in charge of the timing of the class. Do not become distracted or let your eyes wander around the room or start doing your own thing while your students are in Savasana. Remain present and mindful during this vitally important part of the practice. It is a sign of respect towards your students, the space, and the practice.
