|herb pack for shoulders ...|
I woke up and found myself in the same position; savasana (corpse pose) has become a comfort pose for me and I can stay in it for a long time. I noticed that the pack was still warm and so was my chest, they kept each other warm - a mutual relationship! I counted my blessing once again for thousands of savasanas that made that possible, and yes, I check my alignment thoroughly when getting ready to sleep: shoulders away from the ears, checking in on the lower back, etc.. If I had been uncomfortable, I would have turned to the site and the pack would have fallen off. Most nights I fall asleep in savasana, because I either listen to Thomas Amelio's mantras (which I eventually hope to memorize) or do some simple breathwork for a few minutes to clear my mind which most of the time results in soundless sleep... If you have questions about savasana, I suggest that you inquire with your yoga teacher. There are many ways to support savasana in case of lower back or knee tension. I also use an herb pillow for my head, it is tiny and I love it. It supports my neck by aligning itself to its contour. I discussed this with my acupuncturist in the past, she agreed it was a perfect solution for me. For years I had slept without pillows at all because common pillows never really felt comfortable. Naturally it is not a fit all solution. It works for me, I wake up without neck tension which I am very grateful for since I do have a cervical problem which has been covered in the past.
