Praise for The Poetry Of Yoga
“Inspiring, wide ranging, humorous, thought provoking, full of wonderful imagery offering a visceral portrayal of Yoga practice: physical, emotional and spiritual. This ground breaking volume defies simple summary. A book to cherish and revisit again and again – at home or in class.” ~ Jane Sill, Editor, Yoga and Health Magazine
“Hafiz, Mirabai, Rumi, and Gibran never fail to slow speedy minds and wake closed hearts. And now, thanks to this Poetry of Yoga—destined to become a favorite gift book for our community—these two ancient lineages reawaken one another. These writers’ words are offered as salve for the soul. May it be of benefit!”
~ Waylon Lewis, Editor-in-Chief, Elephant Journal
“These beautiful poems speak to and are expressions of the very heart of yoga.” ~ Kelly Birch, Editor, Yoga Therapy Today (International Association of Yoga Therapists)
