This question relates not so much to a specific health condition but to a postural detail.

I had "collected the information" somewhere along the way that for most people there is a tendency for the tongue to rest on the upper palate behind the front teeth and that this activates the frontal lobe of the brain. Therefore, in savasana the tongue should be drawn down to rest on the base of the mouth - savasana for the tongue!

Today I am reading about ideal posture for meditation and therein is the instruction to set the tongue on the upper palate close to the teeth. Meditation is not savasana and vice versa but it all leaves me with some confusion regarding the placement of the tongue in tadasana, savasana and meditation.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this!
