Praise for Yoga Poems: Lines to Unfold By
I thank Leza for winding down the road of intimately describing her experiences within her yoga practice, extracting the essence of the yoga postures with her keen observation, and communicating them to us through potent poetry.
Hatha-Yoga at its best is both precision science and poetry of the heart. Leza Lowitz's inspired poems capture well this dual spirit. I have been enjoying them for their depth and grace.
Leza Lowitz understands that the body speaks in the language of dreams, sensations, images, and fractured memories. Her Yoga Poems emerge like strange and beautiful sea creatures from the ocean of the heart, gesturing towards mysteries that lie beyond linear thought.
Leza Lowitz's poems are lovely, inspiriting, and liberating. Breath is the heart of yoga. Yoga Poems took my breath away!
Any student of yoga will find treasures to cherish within its pages.
