The Benefits of Listening to Yoga Poems
If you teach yoga or simply do yoga at home on your own, you may be looking for inspiring words to share with your class or to meditate upon before beginning your practice. Reading yoga poems before or during a yoga class is an excellent way to invite a calm, soothing, reflective mindset. This, in turn, helps relax and prepare the body for the many benefits of deep stretches and asanas in a yoga class.
Hari Om, Hurry Home, written by poet Brenda Nicholas is a collection of yoga poetry that explores her transformative mental and physical journey with her yoga practice. These poems, titled after asanas, follow the natural flow of a vinyasa yoga class and delve into universal topics such as love, heartbreak, parenthood, and death.
