Leza Lowitz's Sun and Moon Yoga in the Japan Times

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."
