Final relaxation generally occurs as a yoga practice comes to a close. Corpse Pose, final relaxation or Savasana is a pose of total relaxation—making it one of the most challenging. Most yoginis are unable to relax and surrender their mind and body during this yoga practice phase. When you achieve the pose - You may fall asleep. Have you ever had that experience during yoga? Seems to feel like you are just taking a cat nap. The cat nap experience escapes many who walk among us. A coworker purported that she takes a nap daily. A nap daily let me say that one more time, a nap daily. The muster to sleep every night is illusive. Night Owls unite. Catnap... 🤦‍♀️ SMH.

Sleep...what is that? What does the sleep state mean? Parents who fully attempt to tire a child so that the little darling will fall peacefully into slumber. Possibly, you too have had this experience on occasion. Historically with public fervor entertainers tout sleep aides ranging from tranquil pharmaceuticals, music, white noise or bedding materials. Sleep is either illusive, defensive, restorative or deflective in nature or behaviors. Sleep - do you fall easily into slumber in the time frame of which you require? Hell…our devices have the technology to track the quality of our sleep. Awake all night, sleep all day...those behaviors originated from when I popped out the womb and reside with our family in present day.

Our immediate family has 3 siblings that require the television on with sound in order to fall asleep. There are also two siblings who cannot fall asleep with the TV blaring. (As they and Uncle Ed like to expound).

A mentor once shared - men do not care what is on TV, they just care WHAT ELSE is on TV, as she

simulated clicking a remote control.

Uncle Ed stated he cannot fall asleep unless the TV is off and silence fills the air. Television sporting events place Uncle Ed into a new born baby’s slumber-some state. Sporting events on ESPN plus must not qualify as blaring TV with blue light distraction from slumber in the same manner as watching a Netflix series. A little sarcasm thrown into the mix.

Namaste Ways Gina Mitchell. Namaste Ways to the most challenging pose in yoga-Savasana. Namaste Ways.
