Savasana, dead body pose – complete stillness; only breath. Total relaxation. You are getting sleepy, very sleepy….
That’s the way my savasanas have been the last few classes, especially those on my belly. This is a new sensation, not something I remember struggling much with before. But now, all I want to do in savasana is go to sleep. My eyes get heavy and close. I feel almost like I am on the beach. I hear a voice, “eyes open” – yikes, wake up…
Not sure what is going on…the heat? my nutrition? my schedule? the challenge?
I want answers so I can “fix” it. I want energy, an energetic practice, a deepening practice, a practice that connects. Not one where I snooze!
Perhaps sleep, rest, relaxation is what my body needs right now. I will try to listen and comply.
Just not in savasana.
