Author and Founder of Yoga Inspires Ntathu Allen shares this week’s Yoga Poem of the week – Tadasana Is My Middle Name.
The inspiration for today’s yoga poem came after my morning meditating and gliding into a gentle and loving yoga practice, I felt so strong and powerful – like a mountain, that I picked up my journal and wrote today’s Yoga Poem “Tadasana is My Middle Name.” (Tadasana is the Sanskrit name for the Mountain Pose in Yoga)
Yoga Poem – Tadasana Is My Middle Name
Standing strong on my mat, Tadasana is my middle name,
a moving mountain, surpassing the pain within.
Standing strong, roots embedded, energy flowing, chakras aligned,
I lengthen the spine, soften the breath, open the heart to the glory within.
Standing strong in my power, Tadasana is my middle name.
Backbend, side-bend to the left or to the right, it’s all the same.
Leaning back, forwards, touching toes and breathing out,
letting go of the need to know – surrendering to the Goddess within.
Standing tall, arms hanging loosely by my side, I sense the energy within
flowing through from root to crown, absorbing the pain,
melting the ice, re-igniting the fire within.
Standing tall on the mat opening my heart,
Giving my all as I surrender to the love.
Standing strong on the mat, Tadasana is my middle name –
a moving mountain, flexing with the wind, honouring the Goddess within.
