Poolside shavasana. Today when I lay down in corpse pose I felt suspended. The sound of the water added to this. The edges of my body softened into fuzz. Strong wave of prana flowed through the flesh of my buttocks into my hip bones which felt pushed forward – like they were yawning and stretching. Fuzzy edges of body. My toes tingled and the soles of my feet felt polished – ‘like alabaster’ was the phrase that came to mind.
When I walked out of the gym a little while later I noticed that my hip bones felt springier and more ‘in place’.
Today when I lay down in corpse pose I felt the right side of my body to be heavier than the left. I noticed that my head was titled to the right and my left leg was turned out so that the outside of the foot almost grazed the floor. It felt like my left shoulder was lower than my right.
I stayed with this weightiness, not attempting to bring my posture into symmetry. Its all too easy to correct the pose rather than listening to its lag/ log/ logic. What has my heavy right side logged in its wisdom? The weight said ‘Wait’. ‘More stillness’. ‘Turn inward even deeper.’
As you read this what has your posture logged in its wisdom? What is its weight telling you?
