Welcoming Spring- Yoga Class 3/23/13

A big thank you to my teacher Laurel who introduced me to this poem years ago!  It has stuck with me and was a joy to share with my students on Saturday.  At this transition from winter to spring I am always seeking bright colors and reminders that soon the snow will be melted and we will see color.

When watching a child play, you know that they are still filled with and exuding their highest self.  Even if you are not a yogi, you are aware of their wonder and joy.  It is something that we are all born with and sadly, forget.  We then spend the rest of our lives trying to remember it.

Remembering spring, remembering our highest selves and remembering Sri.

In the time of daffodils

Who know the goal of living is to grow

Forgetting why; Remember how

In the time of lilacs

Who proclaim the aim of waking is to dream

Forgetting seem; Remember So

In the time of roses

Who amaze our now and here with paradise

Forgetting if; Remember yes

In the time of all sweet things

Beyond whatever mind may comprehend

Forgetting find; Remember seek

And in mystery to be

When time from time shall set us free

Forgetting me; Remember me

~e.e. cummings

In our class we starting with a short and sweet Yin-like practice and continued with a slow flow Vinyasa.  Tree was our apex!

This was the soundtrack:
