On Saturday, September 16, The Japan Times featured an article on Leza Lowitz, author of Yoga Poems, which has just been released in a gorgeous paperback edition.
Lowitz on writing Yoga Poems:
"The first line came to me one evening in 1995 as I was struggling in The Downward Dog: 'Within my body, there's a city.' After that, as I practiced poses, the poetry just began to flow."
Lowitz on her yoga studio in Tokyo, Sun and Moon Yoga, which currently has some 1,000 students:
"The students who like our down-to-earth attitude are a wonderful mix. Fifty percent are Japanese, and they come, they say, because they feel they can be themselves."
