Yoga poetry

And now for something completely different. A Yoga Poem that I wrote 3 years ago. However being that it's about Yoga, it must be timeless.

Thousands of years ago in a place now called India,

was the start of something great known as Yoga!

Yoga helped folks to sit still in order to pray and meditate,
instead of having their bodies just ache.

They watched the nature to become a mountain or tree,
they became animals too, like the cobra, camel, and monkey.

They moved with breath while becoming flexible and strong,
soon their hearts began to sing a fine song.

As they opened their bodies, they opened their minds,
no wonder yoga has lasted such a long time.

Their spirits soared, as they opened that too,
is there anything this Yoga can’t do?

Today some folks think Yoga is a religion,
that if they practice there will be a belief collision.

Spiritual, yes. Religious, no. Whether it’s Ala, Jesus, Buddha, or none of these,
Yoga is sure to please.

Forget the pretzel shapes and odd contortions,
Yoga is for those of all proportions.

Try Yoga and you’ll not only get a good stretch,
you’ll find strength & balance too—I’ll just bet.

Finally, the point of it all,
vitality, peace, and connection all rolled into one ball!

Love Much,


Today is the first day of the rest of your life!
