Yoga for Life —- Ariel Howland

we met in ol’ peace corp 

i remember her ladling handfuls of sand

onto her lil feet

on some beach at the end of the world

fresh from the war

flash forward

 ariel first got me into yoga

way back when in some cottage in jersey

next thing i knew i was in india with pattabhi jois

now she is in san fran

doing therapy

teaching yoga

saving the world in her own way

like she always has

so much is owed

  1. Hi Holden, you don’t know me I am Ariel’s sister, and I was googling her to find something she had told me about. I came across this beautiful poem of her and it brought a tear to my eye. You have captured the goodness that is her beauty!!! Just thought I should comment!
