Yoga and Me: A Poem


By: Gaia Staff  |  July 23, 2014

When yoga first discovered me It was a thing I did, to be healthy

But over time, I was intrigued And realized, the waters run deep

Yoga fuels me to break free From the bounds of society

I can follow my heart, and my dream Even if it means swimming upstream

It’s become by now a way of life The yogic way helps me thrive

Makes me smile through my tears Keeps me marching despite the fears

Yoga connects me to my source The benevolent supreme life force

Slowly but surely making me whole Unifying body, mind and soul

Yoga is my guide, my friend Taking me to journey’s end

I am yoga and yoga is me Oh how my soul rejoices in glee!
