Hafiz, Gibran, Neruda, Rumi . . . their yoga mats were blank pieces of paper; they did asana with pencils between their fingers; their pranayama was inverted metaphor; and their Samadhi was uninhibited, naked poetry. Yoga is a journey, an intricate dance of mind, body, breath, and spirit. It is cultivation of self-awareness through reflection. The Poetry of Yoga is an ecstatic gathering of poetry written by some of the most accomplished and well-known spiritual teachers of our time. Poems are set in the following yogic themes: compassion, desire, freedom, transformation, and service. A book all yoga practitioners cherish and return to over and over for nourishment and inspiration.

"O Ganga-mouthed Ginsberg, you lit Varanasi incense. We sat on Whitman's leaves. The sun revealed the seven gates of green. Doves flapped inside your heart, flew out of your OM, soared on the current of your gold-threaded breath...A tiger crouched then roared. The earth opened like your woman hole and took us wholly home." "The animals who we eat, the cows, the goats, and the sheep, are vegetarians who do not eat meat unless it is forced down their throats which is quite an easy feat these creatures are docile by nature but we humans trying to make a buck we don't even give a flying f----- after all it is only some poor slob chained in a stall who cannot speak after all Besides isn't that what God put them here for?"
