Yoga and Death

Margaret Kruszewska

Yoga can teach us a lot about death.

Not only when we prepare ourselves for the final relaxation at the end of a class called savasana (the corpse pose) but also when we notice the limitations of our physical bodies, and then the acceptance of these changes as the only constant in our lives.

So that one day during a yoga session, we notice that we can accept all the minor forms of “death” in our lives. The death of our youthful selves or the end of our role as a lover or teacher or ending a business or finishing a long association with a group or job.

And then we are at the beginning again.
