about this item
Shakespeare’s Yoga applies some of the Bard’s most famous quotes and passages to yoga practice. With insights from her involvement in Shakespearean theater and 20 years as a yoga practitioner, studio owner, and yoga teacher trainer, Claire Szabo-Cassella parallels Shakespeare’s inherent spiritual wisdom to the Yamas, the five core yogic concepts in the art of right living.Like Hamlet, asking ourselves the big questions comes naturally when given the inspiration, time, and space to do so. These same enquiries arise during our yoga practice: Who is breathing me? Where does the energy moving my body come from? Where do the images in my mind come from and go to? Shakespeare’s insights radically raise our consciousness and our ability to heal ourselves.Perfect for anyone wanting deeper self-growth with yogic insights from the literary master on the human condition. Yoga students, plus Shakespearean actors, theatergoers, and instructors find renewal and fresh ideas.Shakespeare’s yogic teachings change your life. What we do once the stage clears and we roll up our mats can transform what would be merely a physical and mental exercise” into a catalyst for change.Shakespeare’s Yoga is a companion for the journey.
