The position of transition

I know that summer’s not yet over, and I also know that it’s no longer really summer because we don’t have that sense of long days and far-away deadlines and demands like we do at the threshold of the hot season.

In yoga classes, I ask students to be fully present in the position of transition after savasana, and before sitting back up to close the class. I ask students to be in that position on their sides long enough to stop the effort it took to roll over so they can again feel the ease of no work, while being in the momentum to return to whatever lies ahead for them for the rest of the day or evening.
