Editorial Reviews

A thoughtful and intelligent force who fills a void that is too often left unfilled. Hawah's dedication to his craft of healing and teaching peace is impeccable. His presence commands calmness and serenity. He has been an inspiration to thousands here at Bus Boys and Poets.' - Andy Shallal, founder and owner, Bus Boys and Poets "Perfect for solitary contemplation, this anthology is full of yogic wisdom." - Yoga Journal Magazine "This book is a link that paints an important picture and gives us that experience of looking beyond appearances and feeling that profound parallel between the yogic experience and poetry." -Rod Stryker, author of The Four Desires "This book is the soul ignited." -Sianna Sherman, founder Mythic Yoga Flow "These beautiful poems speak to and are expressions of the very heart of yoga." -Kelly Birch, Editor, Yoga Therapy Today "To have yoga without poetry is like having marriage without love. Poetry is the essence of beauty in language. I am grateful for HawaH having put together this volume to inspire yoga students with the beauty of meter and verse." -Aadil Palkhivala, Master Yoga Teacher "This collection of poems is a beautiful expression of the collective consciousness of the modern day yoga culture." -YOGANONYMOUS "As I started to scan through the pages, I felt like I had won the lottery! Like a beautiful asana, each page contains words perfectly aligned to lift my soul. I had been given the gift of a book of yoga poems that I know will provide inspiration for my life and my yoga classes for many years to come." -The Daily Downward Dog "This book is a sweet gift offering to any poetically inclined yoga practitioner and a perfect item to have at yoga studios. Often, instructors will be able to bring resting students back from Savasana with an inspiring reading. The Poetry of Yoga offers a trove of fresh selections. Like asana practice itself, each visit to the book will bring new discovery and communion." - Mount Shasta Magazine "It is such an incredible combination of yoga and poetry that we were literally 'blown away.' It has so many great poems and the offerings from the yoga community makes us proud and happy to be a part of something so special." - Flow Yoga Magazine "This book is successfully building momentum to revitalize the ancient tradition of yoga poetry." -Art of Zen Yoga " The Poetry of Yoga is an amazing book . . . featuring some of today's greatest yoga teachers!" - Opposing Views " The Poetry of Yoga harnesses the energy of a great movement of healing arts practitioners . . . and crossed the lines to gather and contribute 21st century reflections of the state of an ancient practice. . ." - Tribe "I used to dream about living in the desert, where the mountains turned pink at sunset, snow graced mountain tops, and every star and galaxy in the sky opened its glimmering eyes; now it is all here in an anthology!" -Sister Hawk "A powerhouse book of poems!" - Where is My Guru? "Heartwarming, funny, inspiring and enlightening. A great collection for poetry lovers - whether you practice yoga or not!" -Chelsea Edgett "Lots of people write and read poetry and we should all come out of the closet about it." - Mind Body Green "A monumental work of art, compiled and offered as a global reflection. The many poems, colors, perceptions and cadences, in The Poetry of Yoga together stand as one glowing source of light. . .one representing our generation." -Hosh Yoga "When you're a child and read Dr. Seuss, poetry becomes part of the childhood landscape. This is a playful, contemplative, whimsical, serious gateway back to that place. Rhyme or not, long or short, this collection of poems skewers the heart and spirit with a joyful edge. It's a must-have for any library!" -Sherry Hanck "I'm impressed, there is actually a whole, budding theory on how yoga and creativity can work together in all kinds of mediums, from writing, to painting, to music, or just dealing with issues coming up in whatever work it is you do. We need creativity in all aspects of our lives, and in order to access it, we have to be willing to step out of our comfortable boxes." - Spirituality and Health "This book is a great victory. A voice to contemporary yoga. Through this book we get to see the somatic power of consciousness." -Shiva Rea"
