Why I Don’t Love Savasana

I have a confession to make. I don’t love Savasana. I know. Shocking. I think it’s the whole idea that I am “supposed to” let go. Sit in meditation and watch my thoughts arise, linger, and pass through? Sure. But lie there at the end of a yoga practice and just…let go? No thank you. I mean, I know how to lie there and not fidget. I know how to be still and watch the busyness of my mind. I have been practicing yoga for a long time.

But I also have always known that I wanted to expand that beyond the confines of the studios and into the greater community around us.

A couple of years ago, I was looking at how I wanted Source Yoga to give to our larger community. From our very first year in business, we offered Thanksgiving donation classes, giving the proceeds to local service organizations, and donated regularly to many local schools and other non-profits. We have offered scholarships for workshops and events provided by our “Source Yoga Scholarship Fund,” but I kept asking myself, “How can we continue to make an even bigger difference?”
