Shakespeare's Yoga applies some of the Bard's most famous quotes and passages to yoga practice--on and off the mat. With down-to-earth insights from her involvement in Shakespearean theatre and twenty 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. As a result, you realize "all the world's a stage" for yoga practice. Like Hamlet, asking ourselves the big questions--Who's there? What if? Who am I? To be or not to be?--comes naturally when given the inspiration, time and space to do so. These same enquiries and more 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? It is the answers to these questions that Shakespeare's enlightened insights radically shift within us, raising our consciousness and our ability to heal ourselves, and our world.
