Poetry poetry book

The Meaning of Magical Yogis, by Mark Tulin


My first small book of poetry was Magical Yogis, published in 2017 by Prolific Press.

The book was a culmination of many years as a yoga practitioner, my teacher training experience in the Santa Ynez mountains, and having many teachers who practiced a wide variety of yoga styles and techniques.

The theme of the book was not only about how I experienced the various yoga classes and poses but what spiritual meanings and poetic images I drew from them.

In Hip Opener, I Am the Warrior, Nothing Left to Do, I wrote about my world expanding, my gaining strength, and letting go.

Through the process of writing some of these poems, I discovered that yogis were everywhere, not just the studio, but in dreams, in the spiritual world, in a hungry child, in the perseverance of a disabled man, and in a grandmother’s fragrant fingers after opening a can of tuna.

I also convey yoga as humorous and whimsical in poems like Faces, Dreams and Visions; Poem Surfing; and Magical Yogis.

You can purchase signed copies of Magical Yogis via PayPal.   The book is also available on Kindle Unlimited and on Prolific Press’s website.

I am an author, poet, humorist, and short story writer from Palm Springs, California. I write about various topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia to my years as a family therapist and finally to my soul-searching in California. These are poetic narratives that may have humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry and stories resonate with you.

  2. I found my copy when I was setting up my room in my new apartment! I’m so glad I kept it. It’s a cherished item amongst my things. The poem about Grandma’s Tuna evokes peaceful and happy memories of the one I loved so much!
