Praise for Yoga Heart: Lines on the Six Perfections


Yoga Heart is a tiny treasure to hold and to behold. Even the typography and colors are food for contemplation...highly recommended for people who will not only read the lines for enjoyment, but also use them for contemplation and right action in life.

New York Journal of Books

Leza’s poems are pure gems of wisdom that will wake you up, inspire you, challenge you, move you, and call you to action to live your yoga more fully. Yoga Heart rocks the heart of yoga, which is the desire to live not just to better ourselves, but to help better the world.

Giving can take so many forms—giving time, giving money, and giving thoughts. The power of Leza’s poems is centered around giving thoughts for everything we have been given in our lives. Take the time to read her words, absorbing the beauty and love for all that we are given.

Poetry, like yoga, is food for our soul. What a gracious feast Leza has prepared for us. She guides us inward with her beautiful, poetic meditations and inspires us to move outward with her artful expressions of love.
