Reviews

"Beautifully synthesized yoga and Judaism in understandable and poetic ways. A testament to the power of yoga as a way of life to enhance any faith."
--Marsha Wenig, creator of YogaKids

"At last, a whole-bodied approach to Hebrew that not only informs the mind but opens the soul. This is not your Bubbe's aleph-bet book, but it should have been"
--Rabbi Rami Shapiro, translator/annotator of The Hebrew Prophets: Selections Annotated and Explained and Hasidic Tales: Annotated and Explained

"An intriguing, interesting and innovative concept. Using Hebrew letters as parallels to ancient yogic asansas opens exciting possibilities of intregration."
--Aruni Nan Futuronsky, director of Retreat and Renewal, Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health

"Reader-friendly, poetic, and insightful ... an excellent beginning guide for those who want to view yoga through a Jewish Lens."
--Alan Reder, contributing editor to Yoga Journal; coauthor of The Whole Parenting Guide
