Poerty how I LOVE thee
I love using poems in my yoga class time to time. In Anusara Yoga all classes have a theme, antidote, heart quality, and an alignment principle of emphasis. Brilliant poetry that speaks to my heart inspires me to weave all these elements together. I don’t use poems all the time, I think they can become over used and I try to use them sparingly so they stay extra delicious and not something that is expected.
Some of my favorite poetry books:
· Your Other Names, by Tara Sophia Mohr
· The Gift, Hafiz (I like the translation by Daniel Ladinsky)
· The Essential Rumi, Rumi
· The Prophet, Khalil Gibran
· How We Became Human, Joy Hario
· Why I Wake Early, Mary Oliver
· The Leaf and the Cloud, Mary Oliver
· Love Poems, Pablo Neruda
