NEW CLASS: Yoga & Poetry Class with Jesse Curran Fridays at 8:30 AM - 9:45 AM Drop in $20 or use card Description of class: The claims of yoga, nevertheless, are only as good as its practice, regardless of any high-minded rhetoric surrounding its teaching. The same is true for poetry, or any human activity that aspires to grace.                                                  -Stanley Plumly, “Lyric Yoga”

Yoga and poetry share many qualities:  breath awareness, attention to detail, expression of the inner self, and an awareness of interrelation. Poetry has also been used as a vehicle to, in the words of the Roman poet Horace, “teach and delight.” As such, it has become a means of sharing timeless wisdom through beautiful and precise language. Guided by this sensibility, each class will include a full hatha yoga practice and will be framed by short readings from different poets who express a compelling resonance to yogic philosophy and meditative perception. From Kobayashi Issa’s faithful ahimsa (non-violence) to Walt Whitman’s embodied transcendence to Alice Walker’s resolute acceptance of the daily round, our intention will be to join mind and body, word and emotion, and ultimately to join (or yoke) with the infinite.
