If you ever work with kids than you have heard that whiny “im tired” during many activities with them. When they take yoga then they know that “nap time” comes at the end of every class (a.k.a. Savasana) and sometimes they are very eager to get there. However, in YogaSprouts we do not refer to Savasana as “nap time” but emphasize that “relaxation” will be coming soon. This builds the idea that Savasana is not about fitting in a quick nap after an active yoga class, but about releasing the body, its tensions, and being completely still even though you are not about to go to sleep. Most yogis will tell you this is hardest pose because it requires absolute surrender. The kids probably still think it is a nap time, but in time they will experience the trial and bliss that is Savasana.
