Like most people my favorite part of a yoga class is savasanna. If I take an early morning class, I feel like there is no way I can give myself these 5 minutes. I have way too much todo to lay here in my sweaty yoga clothes on my slippery mat. Afterwards, I realize those 5 minutes were the most important part of class. Complete appreciation for my heart, my lungs, my body, my breath, my practice, my life. I bring that appreciation for life throughout the rest of my day that lay ahead of me. Its easy to get caught up in our daily activities and not have a moment of silence. Not the silence you have before you drift off to sleep, but the silence with extreme heightened awareness preparing you for the world.

Sometimes it will be complete and perfect silence. Other times, the teacher comments on mind-altering subjects that I rarely think about during the much “too-busy” day. It is the people around me that peoples calming energy is comfort enough to know this is exactly where you should be right now. Doing nothing, yet doing everything.
