Sleeping Buddha

Sleeping (dreaming?) Buddha. Photo taken in Sri Lanka some years ago.
Since the feet are parallel, the Buddha is sleeping.

That is definitely the classic dream yoga posture (lion posture) for the first two segments as outlined by Tenzin Wangyal. I do it on my left side rather than my right side due to…bed geography ( :wink: ) but it still works fine.

"Lie in the lion posture: Men lie on their right side, women on their left. Bend
the knees enough to make the body stable, rest the top arm along the side, and
place the lower hand under the cheek. You may benefit from experimenting
with using a slightly higher pillow, being careful of your neck, in order to keep
the sleep lighter"
