This beautiful collection of poetry would make a wonderful gift for the yogis and poetry lovers in your life. Packed with thoughtful, insightful and inspirational words from all around the globe. And a portion of the proceeds go to a great cause too!
Hey, this beautiful book balances tasteful typography with excellent lettering on titles calligraphed by hand, which creates an impression that is at once contemporary and yet has a flavor of 60s books like Be Here Now and the Whole Earth Catalog. Inside find a collection of works by yogis and devotional musicians and poets that illuminate the wide range of experiences that contribute to yoga practice, from asanas to personal relationships to deeper levels of awakening. - Bodhiron
Dear Friends! Being a part of this anthology makes me feel excited, grateful and a bit proud to find my name among so many great poets /p. 223/. But not that is the reason to recommend it to you. Having the Poetry of Yoga, vol. 1 and 2 will enrich not only your bookshelves but your minds, your souls, even your attitude to the world.
This anthology is a great tool for teachers who want to share inspirational, insightful & enlightening poems with their community of students. It's also a wonderful resource that can inspire your personal practice !
Poetry is a way to touch the soul, heart and mind, poetry is indeed timeless, sexless, breaks cultural boundaries and brings us back to our inner self. It breaks our assumptions and opens doors mentally. This book contains over 300 poems by yogis from 19 countries. It's a pleasure to have and to read. I've gifted it to many people who have never really even practiced yoga! Because yoga is not just asana practice. This book says it clearly.
