B.K.S. Iyengar 14 December 1918 - 20 August 2014 …
Jane Munro is an award-winning Canadian poet and dedicated yogi. She lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, and practises Iyengar yoga at The Yoga Space.
In 2014, she found herself in Pune, India at the Iyengar Institute having her Sirsasana ‘renovated’ by Geeta Iyengar. This inspired the poem below, which Jane also recites in the attached video, very appropriately, while in Sirsasana.
Jane’s new poetry collection is Glass Float (Brick Books, 2020). Her sixth collection, Blue Sonoma (Brick Books), won the 2015 Griffin Poetry Prize.
She has taught Creative Writing at several universities in BC, given many informal writing workshops, and read her poetry to audiences across Canada and in Ireland, the USA, Italy, India, and Egypt.
Jane is a member of the collaborative poetry group Yoko’s Dogs. She has been to Pune four times to study yoga at RIMYI.
