A new student attends my class this evening. She's never done yoga before.
I ask her after the class how she got on.
Her answer surprises me; "I felt that I was floating in the final relaxation and I put my arms out but I couldn't feel the floor".
I ask her if she was OK with this and she assures me it was very relaxing. I say that she must indeed have reached a very deep state of relaxation during the 15 minute final relaxation.
Two weeks later she returns. Again I ask after the class how she got on, interested if she'd had a similar experience, "Yes," she said, "but not as much this time."
I ask if there is any particular reason for the difference; "Yes," she replied, "I've got a bit of toothache."
