Editorial Reviews

Review

"Jeff Davis inspires us to find the genuine voice of our own body/mind by sharing the time-tested yogic practices of breathing consciously, getting grounded, and creating space. This book is a terrific road map toward creating the conditions for writing to happen." -- Cyndi Lee, founder of OM Yoga

"There is so much good information in this book... Yogis may find a desire to write and writers will find support for turning their sedentary, often lonely, vocation, into an embodied and dynamic practice." -- Ascent Magazine

"...intended to help writers 'forge a deeper connection with their muse through the use of simple yoga practices,' and other cool stuff...If you're already stuck in downward dog, this might be one to check out." -- January Magazine

Format: Paperback
"Yoga is a philosophy and practice that emphasizes less how you look on the mat and more how you live in the world," says author Jeff Davis. As I have struggled to blog on a regular basis, I reached out for a resource that spoke to me to shift my approach to the work. I began a yoga teacher training program last spring and finding this author has connected writing and the study of yoga in a wonderfully effective way to allow me not only begin to move forward, but inspires me on multiple levels. You don't have to be studying yoga, or even practicing, to get value from this well-grounded writing instructor in this book. Enjoy your journey to the page!"

Format: Paperback
Writing and Yoga are two concepts alien from one another, or so one would think. "The Journey from the Center to the Page: Yoga Philosophies and Practices as Muse for Authentic Writings" is author and Yoga enthusiast Jeff Davis' guide to combining these two loves. Advising readers to channel their spirit to enhance their writing and immerse themselves in their work, his tips and suggestions are as sound as his soul. "The Journey from the Center to the Page: Yoga Philosophies and Practices as Muse for Authentic Writings" is highly recommended for any writer looking to unleash the best of themselves and for community library Spirituality and Writing collections.

I adore this book. It is like a gourmet feast of stimulation for a writer. Whether you are interested in yoga or not,this is a must have gem for every writer. Jeff Davis is at once ruthless, tender-hearted and exquisitely wise in guiding other writers into the depths of their being to propel their authentic voice onto the page.
