Thoughtfully introducing the eight limbs of yoga and Ayurveda, these meditations are the perfect way to enhance your yoga practice. Guided visualisations and reflections can be used to open or close a class, or to read while in pose, and also during home practice, to increase awareness of the self and understanding of yoga practice.
Explore the vastness of yoga through the art of meditation. This collection offers short readings on a variety of yoga-related themes, including the eight limbs, the seven chakras, and yoga's sister science, Ayurveda. Meditations for awareness and well-being are included, as well as guided relaxations and opening and closing meditations for yoga class and home practice. Weaving together the practical experience of yoga with its ancient oceanic depths, the series of meditations encourage a centering that directs attention to the breath, the present, and appreciating the gifts that each moment of life can bring. Providing nourishment for the heart, mind and body through awareness, let this book turn your attention to the essence of yoga and invite you to go within while remaining rooted in the present moment.
