You make it to a yoga class. You’re laying down at the end and you’re ready to relax in Savasana, the last resting pose. As you settle in, the teacher tells you in their softest and most reassuring voice to let go, to surrender.
And you do. For about 3 seconds. Then the stream of thoughts begins:
…What am I supposed to be doing here?
…Do they have to drop those weights outside?
…How am I supposed to relax when that is happening?
…What should I have for dinner?
…Oh wait, I’m supposed to quieting my mind! Ok, peaceful mind, relax…and you do–for about 3 seconds before the parade of thoughts begins again.
Sound familiar? If so, you are not alone.
