Savasana

February 4, 2011

I had a hard time in yoga this morning. I wasn’t able to find the ease and the effort that make this class so awesome.  Until savasana.

I put my arms over my head, and my left arm was so tight, my elbow could not reach the floor.  I decided I was try to relax it into place by breathing and imagining that I was melting into the floor. Then I started thinking about dying and how cool it would be if we just let our bodies return to the earth after death.”Remember that you are dust and unto dust you shall return.” I’ve never had much of an opinion about what should be done with my body after I die (as long as whatever is done is consistent with human dignity). But now I want to look into ecological, green burial options.

It’s a weird thing to think about, but savasana is the corpse pose, after all.
