Namaskar Merleot,

One of the most important reasons why we should relax the tongue during Shavasana is to avoid making it a point of tension. The number one objective of Shavasana is to relax.

In meditation and when practicing Tadasana, we should focus. Whilst practising meditation or Tadasana, we should gently place the tongue against the upper palate as one of the points of focus.

It is important to understand that there are many points of focus when "setting up for" meditation and Tadasana. We might say the spine being straight is of primary importance in both practices.

At the same time - duing our Yoga practice and in meditation - we must become completely aware without self-criticism. So, there is a delicate balance here between what is technical and just doing it.

Om Shanti,
