RELAX: to become less active and more calm and happy.

The definition of relax makes it sound like it should be easy to do. But the mind is always seeking something. Gratification, entertainment, problems to solve, the next big challenge. While the mind is grasping, the body is too. Tense jaw, brow, shoulders and stomach.

It usually seems like the last thing we want to do, but it’s the thing we need the most. To relax. Let go, pay attention to tension and consciously release. Surrender the body, the mind, the ego.

Savasana allows us the time and space that we need to practice this complete surrender and relaxation. Nothing to do and nowhere to be, but here. Right now.
