23 Yoga Love Poems
Sweet yoga valentine…
Root chakra is red, throat chakra is blue,
Heart chakra is green, and I’ll share mine with you.
- Laura J
Poems are asanas when breathed come true,
my heart chakras fed with chants of You.
rubies are red
sapphires are blue
don’t need to give me jewelry
to “nama-stay” with you! ♥
Lotus flower is red
Lotus flower is blue
the light in me
loves the light in you
My Sun Salutation burns red,
On my mat I’m not blue,
Yoga spreads the love to us all,
Namaste to you, too!
My bolster is high and my props are on the ready
yoga for me is about slow and steady
Come share the bliss and float away
To all fellow yogis –
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Self love and care…
You can’t love another
without first loving self.
Thank goodness I found yoga
to take my heart off the shelf!
Poses are read,
From my yoga book and blew,
But I try again,
Until it’s not new.
First I shall sit, then learn to be,
connecting mind, body, and breath,
I find samadhi.
My breath is like fire, my heart is true blue
I am most authentic on my mat
Where I shine most true
Stepping on the mat to this new day
I kneel to the ground with hands to pray
Setting an intention as I inhale
Opening my heart to every exhale
Gaining peace, love, and infinite possibility
I regain my life to perfect tranquility
- Nicole F
birds of paradise are red, lotuses are white,
hip-openers on v-day
make my strut a delight
A Yogi’s Valentine:
V is for invigorating vinyasas, while
A is for relaxing adho mukha svanasana.
L is for loving my body for it’s
Equilibrium and balance.
N is for no judgments, while
T is about finding time
In the morning, afternoon, and evening.
My yoga mat is red, I’m feeling blue
I’ve been missing Yoga
Because of the flu
feel better Sharon!
For the romantics…
Breath of fire makes red, pigeon makes blue.
Yoga introduced me to me,
and thats how i met you!
My mat is red,
My boyfriend’s is blue.
Tomorrow is couples’ yoga class,
for me and my boo.
Beet juice is sweet, and yoga is sweaty,
For my Valentines Day yogi I will make whole wheat spaghetti.
- Janet R
I’m heading to bed; are you coming too
Wrapped in your arms..all is well..I love you..<3
Yoga bods strong and healthy with sinew
Yoga minds clear with restless thoughts few
An ode to the cutie who sits in the back corner:
My mat is hot pink, your eyes are bright blue
I caught you looking last week,
I hope you enjoyed the view.
A mat of red
a towel of blue
I’d love to get sweaty
at yoga with you
And a little naughty…
I’m seeing red, ’cause his thoughts are blue
I want to do yoga and he wants to screw!
And of course…
root chakra red, yoga mat blue,
some poems rhyme,
but this one doesn’t.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
