All yoga is for meditators, after all. Still, there are poses that I have found to be optimal in addressing the specific physical challenges that arise during meditation, and it is in this spirit that I offer the practices in this book.
Author: Charlotte Bell
Publisher: Shambhala Publications
Charlotte Bell, author of Mindful Yoga, Mindful Life, has blended the practices of yoga and meditation since 1986. In her new book, Yoga for Meditators, she writes, "Asana practice, by its very nature, is about preparing the body for meditation. So a book on yoga for meditators may seem redundant. All yoga is for meditators, after all. Still, there are poses that I have found to be optimal in addressing the specific physical challenges that arise during meditation, and it is in this spirit that I offer the practices in this book." Divided into four parts, the book offers practices that are designed for both beginning and seasoned practitioners: • Taking a Seat: Steady and Comfortable—addresses the most common physical issues that can cause discomfort during sitting in meditation. • Yoga Poses for Sitting Meditation—outlines asanas to guide you to a more easeful practice. Whether you practice vipassana, Zen, Transcendental, kriya, or any other kind of sitting meditation, these poses will help you collect the mind, awaken the spine, relax the base, soften the shoulders, and quiet the body-mind. • Practicing Yoga—uses the asanas from part two to create sequences for calming agitation, increasing energy, opening the hips, relieving stress, easing the lower back, and practicing during the moon cycle. • Alternate Meditation Postures—discusses the other traditional meditation positions—walking, standing, and lying—with ways to settle into each. "The silent, peaceful mind is our birthright; it lives inside us all," Charlotte writes. "Our minds and bodies are interwoven. When the body is at ease, the mind has a much easier time settling into silence. May your asana and meditation practices uncover the peace that already lives within."

Mindfulness and yoga-based approaches as beneficial supplements to traditional mental health paradigms are well supported by empirical research.

Encompassing the theoretical foundations, key practices, and comprehensive protocols of mindfulness and yoga-based approaches for the treatment of externally oriented behaviors, the text is targeted at mental health professionals who wish to learn how to incorporate these techniques into their practice.

From renowned yogi meditation teacher and author of Do Your Om Thing Rebecca Pacheco comes Still Life, offering an in-depth exploration of mindfulness and meditation misconceptions to arm the reader with inspirational and practical tools for cultivating a consistent mindfulness practice. For years Rebecca Pacheco has taught readers and students alike how to embrace the wisdom of the yoga sutras and reap their mental, emotional, and spiritual benefits. In Still Life, she turns her focus to mindfulness, demystifying a seemingly esoteric practice and giving readers practical, real-life tools to implement mindfulness in their own lives--regardless of experience level or lifestyle. Pacheco begins by deconstructing the common arguments against meditation--from "meditation is easy" to "you have to sit still with your eyes closed' and the infamous "I don't have the time." Pacheco offers valuable insight into what mindfulness entails, and why the process of cultivating more of it can improve not only our own lives, but also the lives of others. Pacheco also takes on the reductive messaging about mindfulness commonly heard from the contemporary wellness community, including the popularly-held tenet that meditation is about "good vibes only." A contemplative life, Pacheco argues, isn't synonymous with bliss and positivity, but rather a degree of mental, emotional, and spiritual grappling. Still Life challenges readers to dig deep, to learn and practice tools that can ultimately lead to joy--to waking up in the present, reclaiming the moment, and living life fully.
