I love to chat with students after class, and there are two questions that arise after almost every class, especially when new students have joined us:
1. What was the music you were playing?
2. Who wrote that poem?
This seems a good place to share all my secrets.
Every poem I read at the end of class (with very rare exceptions) was written by Danna Faulds, a teacher of Kripalu Yoga. Her poems have a way of speaking to me as if she lived in my head (pour soul!), and I’ve found that many students feel a similar connection to her work. I have occasionally copied a poem for a student who asks, but I’d rather you buy her work so she keeps making more! Plus, the pages of my DF books are all marked up with dates, as I don’t want to repeat them too often.
Now on to music. The albums with an asterisk are used mostly for gentle yoga classes and savasana. All titles are available on iTunes.
