Yoga is a Sport…


is a sport

of breaths

on runs and jogs

through trails of forests

rivers and neighborhood

streets lined with lights,

of beating hearts

set to moving feet and

arms arched to music playing

simultaneously inwardly and outwardly,

of lines of sight

from eyes to hands to hearts

of balls hit and tossed and thrown

against backdrops of vectors seen as one

fabric – one web,

of liquid races in the waters

of feet felt along the paths

of whispers

and whistles sung

by the winds and waters

on our runs and swims and dives

deep along the edges of

our comfort zones

as we compete

and play


the yogic loophole –

our edge.


is the sport within….

i had some small debate within myself if yoga was a sport or not, intellectually anyways 😉

in my heart, i knew – i know it is, but differently than maybe first thought so…


last week i wrote a review of one woman’s journey from intellectual to emotional understanding / acceptance

this week i have a minor mirror reflection of that same process

how could yoga be a sport!? i asked myself

sportsmanship? i answered



i think that’s it… 😉

namaste´- con dios – god be with you
