Shakespeare's Yoga gives the reader a new way of looking at the plays of Shakespeare, which is quite an accomplishment on the 400th anniversary of his legacy! This book represents a truly unique blend of the bard and yogic wisdom. It will be of great interest to lovers of Shakespeare and devotees of yoga. --Laura Bates, author of Shakespeare Saved My Life: Ten Years in Solitary with the Bard A beautiful narrative of faith, timelessness, and the depth of living. Two great forces of spirituality, Shakespeare and Patanjali, are united in opening a new dialog to living with our complex, kindest, truest version of ourselves. --Will Duprey, author of Form: A Poetic Experience of the Hatha Yoga Pardipika Whether you have yet to experience yoga or Shakespeare--or are an expert in either or both--Shakespeare's Yoga takes you into a profound and valuable exploration of life's big questions. Claire Szabo-Cassella has pulled together yogic philosophy, excerpts from Shakespeares's work, and an array of quotations and inspiration from those invested on the path of yoga as well as those immersed in the world of Shakespeare to create a life-affirming companion to your journey on and off the mat. -Heidi E.
