Poem: Yoga's Good for That

I have been attending yoga classes for the past three years and find it rejuvenating to my body, mind and spirit.  I created a series of cards a couple of years ago with hand drawn illustrations.  Here are a couple of the designs.

Yoga's Good for That

I bend and stand,
Stretch and sit,
Bow and reach,
Breathe a bit,

Find my core,
Downward dog,
Inner calm,
Think of blog,

What to write,
About this gift,
Yoga class,
What a lift,

Finding peace,
Finding balm,
Feeling good,
Feeling calm,

Gentle thoughts,
From within,
Gentle thoughts,
Will stay and then,

I’ll go about
My day to day,
With extra verve,
Extra nerve,

We all deserve
To feel this well,

Yoga’s good for that.


  1. Wonderful creative cards! Truly marketable. This poem gives kind encouragement for Yoga practice and other self-care. xoxo

  2. Self care is some of the most important kind of care. It allows us to have good energy to extend to others. Thank you for your kind words.

  3. WOW! I completely agree that those designs are marketable and I would be first in line to buy them. The poem expresses such important lessons about self-care in such a vivacious, positive, gentle way. Thank you for sharing your talents with us!

  4. You are welcome, Michelle. Yoga is just excellent in every sense.
