Yawning is just a symptom of moving into a relaxed state of being.
Yawning in public, then, is an ice-breaking signal.
It is condemned as impolite in a society which correlates relaxation with laziness.
On the other hand, in a slower paced society, relaxation is more abundant and so yawning is scarce.
This was my observation in rural India.
In our western society, practicing meditation can help realize this within your own body frame.
Here Ashish had fallen asleep on the Chai shop table where we were both sitting chatting for an hour or more.
No appolgies are expected. It is just the nature of everyday life in rural India. You're tiered, you sleep. No offence.
