Inegrating body, breath and mind
The content of this book reflects Acem’s teaching of yoga to thousands of people in many countries over several decades.
Meditative Yoga brings restful peace to both body and mind, and renewed energy in everyday life. Start tired and end refreshed as body, breath and mind are united in slow, effortless movement. Students of meditative yoga gradually discover new ways of unlocking their inner strength. This book teaches a simple, classical meditative yoga – different from many modern, more dynamic and forceful versions of yoga practiced today.
Meditative Yoga – integrating body, breath and mind contains almost 150 illustrations. Step by step, they demonstrate more than 60 postures and practices. One section provides yoga programmes for various levels – preliminaries, beginners, experienced and advanced. The book also introduces the reader to breathing practices and simple meditation techniques.
The authors, Are Holen and Torbjørn Hobbel, are affiliated with the Acem School of Yoga, founded in 1968. Highly qualified in both yoga and the health sciences, they have taught yoga and meditation to ten thousands of people in many countries.
