The mother of Asanas is the relaxation pose
I am fully alert although my eyes are closed
My body is relaxed and in total melt-down
Fully supported and in touch with the ground
Tensing and relaxing each part in turn
Melting away the muscle burn
The mind is relaxed and completely at ease
Enjoying the silence and feeling the peace
Breathe steadily and deeply to ease the tension
Allowing my chest its full expansion
This asana is about letting go
In total submission I go with the flow
As worry and fatigue drain away
A gentle euphoria fills the day
A wonderful tonic is SAVASANA
Surrendering to gravity without the drama
So comforting, forgiving and sheer bliss
Why can’t all asanas be like this?
That’s Yoga…….if you must
Saving the best till the very last
