The first few times I did it I thought it was a little hokie. Then one time we’re ending the session and the yogi is taking you through this relaxation exercise. “Start at your ankles, relax your ankles, relax your shins, and then your knees” etc. And nothing’s really happening. And then she goes on, “Relax your lips, your nose, your eyes, then your eyebrows.”And as soon as she said that, I felt like I was rising from my body. It was an amazing feeling. I was really blown away. I never knew that I kept tension there and never experienced what it felt like to release tension like that. I have been a believer in yoga as a practice since then.
