Imagine starting your yoga class with the wise words of your instructor, who calls out a pose or two, and the pose is followed by a poem read live by its author. Our January poet is Ricardo Alberto Maldonado.

Please bring your own yoga mat. Doors open at 9:00 am. Class starts at 9:30 am sharp. Ricardo Alberto Maldonado was born and raised in Puerto Rico. He is the translator of Dinapiera Di Donato's Collateral (National Poetry Series/Akashic Books) and the recipient of poetry fellowships from Queer/Arts/Mentorship and the New York Foundation for the Arts. His poems and translations have appeared or are forthcoming in Poetry, Boston Review, Guernica, Denver Quarterly, and elsewhere. He is managing director at the 92Y Unterberg Poetry Center and co-hosts the EMPIRE reading series with Hafizah Geter.
