Release the tension

a man doing meditation

Yoga has taught me a lot of things, but perhaps the biggest discovery, at least in recent times, is that I could do a much better job at relaxing.

We always finish with the corpse pose where you simply lie down and consciously release all the energy in your muscles. Well, I’ve started to notice myself doing that throughout the day, and I have to say, I’m pretty tense.

It made me wonder that if I’m like that, someone who consciously focuses on their breath to get through the day at times, then other people might be in a similar situation.

So I hope you take this as an opportunity to check in on your body, and if you notice yourself tensing up, have a go at releasing the energy. You’ll feel much better for it, I guarantee!
