Read it before you do a retreat (or sneak it along with you if you must) 14 janvier 2014

As a charter member of the Stiff Old Guy's yoga club I truly wish this gem of a book had been available when I sat my first long meditation retreat. Here you have precise instructions for the full range of sitting, supine and walking meditation postures and a carefully crafted set of short asana routines that can be learned quickly and practiced regularly without taking a lot of time.

There's clearly been a great deal of care taken to hone the material down to just the essentials, and what I appreciated even more than the book's precision and brevity was the author's kind and gentle tone throughout. She not only shows us what to practice, she models how to practice, and that makes a good book into a real gem.

Another excellent book 23 octobre 2012

Anyone who has read my blog over the last years knows that I am a huge Rodmell Press fan and when I read and consult their wonderful books, I find my love affair with this publisher simply continues to grow :)

[...]

Yoga for Meditators is a new read for me and I found myself instantly hooked (again!). Written by a yoga teacher who has first hand knowledge on the subject matter, the first thing I was asked to consider is the fact that for many of us (certainly for me!) sitting and simply "being" is a huge challenge. While people who regularly meditate might not understand this, I have a hard time just sitting.

Bell considers this and has written this book with this main thought in mind. Divided into various sections, she explores the subject by discussing it and then proceeding to step by step tips and methods designed to help us meditate - to basically "quiet our body" as Bell suggests.

I especially loved the section "Alternate" positions - which encourages to mediate throughout our day - whether we are walking or doing any other type of activity.

The book is well illustrated and extremely easy to read and understand. You certainly do not have to be a pro at yoga or meditating to practice the techniques in this book.

I loved it.

Mistitled but excellent 14 décembre 2012

This might be better titled "Asanas for Meditators." Nevertheless, this is a great help in teaching the early stages of meditation when students have trouble sitting comfortably for long periods. The advice on the hip and shoulder joints discomfort and how to alleviate it was worth the cost of the book. I immediately put the ideas and practices to work in my classes letting my students try out the different cushioning suggestions. A must buy for teachers who want to include some meditation instruction.
Perfect resource for finding yoga postures to support meditation 8 novembre 2012

NOTE: I received a free copy of this DVD to review for the site Metapsychology Online Reviews; please see that site for a more detailed version of my review.

As author Charlotte Bell explains in her Introduction, traditional asana practice is in fact intended to prepare the body for meditation. However, through her own meditation practice of many years, Bell came to the realization that sitting in meditation presents particular physical challenges, and so she designed YOGA FOR MEDITATORS to address these issues.

Bell begins helpfully with setting up an appropriate seated posture for meditation. Here she goes above and beyond the usual suggestion to use support to attain a comfortable seat. Rather, Bell explores the advantages and disadvantages of different types of support, from cushions to blankets to a chair, reviewing specifics about how to find the best match and then offering tips for further refining the seated posture. She concludes the information on seated posture with intention setting, which includes a brief overview of relaxed breathing.

Once Bell has provided an overview of sitting, she then introduces postures to prepare the body for seated meditation. This is Part 2 of the book, and it is divided into several sections: Waking the Spine, Relaxing the Base, Softening the Shoulders, and Quieting the Body-Mind. The postural descriptions are meticulously detailed, offering information on props, benefits, contraindications, and modifications. For virtually every pose, Bell suggests variations, especially if one is experiencing any discomfort in the posture.

Part 3 addresses the practice of yoga. It includes a FAQ section as well as six themed sequences developed from the postures included in Part 2. In the final section of the book, Bell introduces alternate forms of meditation. In particular, she focuses on walking meditation, reviewing suggestions for practice, recommending poses to prepare for walking meditation, and providing foot massage exercises to restore the feet. However, she also includes guidelines for both lying and standing meditation. Bell concludes the book with a brief Resources section.

Overall, this is a relatively short yet thorough resource for developing an asana routine which will enhance meditation. It is ideally intended for those who find meditation to be physically challenging, as Bell strives to increase comfort in one's seated practice.
