You can struggle in yoga postures in a way that does not bother you. You can struggle and work hard in a way that does not effect an overarching okay-ness within you. It all comes down to how we are relating to the struggle or the difficulty. I struggle all the time in different postures. Sometimes it bothers me, other times it does not. The experience of being with difficulty can still be a pleasant experience. There can be a lightness and levity to it. You can whistle while you work.
Final Relaxation Pose
This is one of the most healing and important postures in a yoga class and can also be the most challenging especially if you are a survivor of trauma. Because the majority of yoga classes end with a final relaxation, it is important to know your options. If you find that lying flat on your back feels uncomfortable, unsafe, or triggering in any way, find your way into a pose, where you can relax your body, but that also evokes safety. Some options include lying on your side with your head propped on your arm or a blanket, putting your feet up the wall or lying on your belly. Placing a folded blanket on your belly and chest can also provide just enough sensory input to allow you to rest and relax on your back. Wherever version you choose, let your thoughts anchor to the in and out of the breath and let yourself drift into deep relaxation. Healing happens as we let go of the blocks that restrict the flow of energy.

Only when the last tree has died and the last ocean been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realize we cannot eat money.
Humans cannot live without Mother Nature, when Mother Nature can perfectly live without humans.
LOOKING FOR YOGI'S AND YOGA ENTHUSIASTS! I'm beginning to work on a clean, crisp, and clear book about yoga hand mudras. Mudra means “seal,” “gesture,” or “mark.” Yoga mudras are symbolic gestures often practiced with the hands and fingers. They facilitate the flow of energy in the subtle body and enhance one's journey within. I'm looking for models interested in being in this book. At a special rate of $20 you will be featured on two pages of the book and receive a discount code when the book is published should you wish to purchase.
