Meditative Yoga (Integrating Body, Breath and Mind)
Meditative Yoga (Integrating Body, Breath and Mind)
Description
Back of the Book

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 practices and simple meditation techniques.

The authors 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.

 

Foreword

The content of this book reflects Acem’s teachings of yoga to thousands of people in many countries over several decades. Our focus on physical yoga is rooted in a meditative tradition. Close to 100 000 people world-wide have learned Acem Meditation, and there has been a growing need for a book that integrates meditative practice into yoga.

For a long time, yoga did not receive much attention in India and Western societies. The growing interest in recent decades has been inspiring, but has not been noted with undivided pleasure. Yoga today is embraced and modified by a number of trendy body disciples that are quite at odds with its deeper goals. Concerns about such developments have been widely expressed in the question: Is yoga spoiling yoga?

In India, yoga originated in the mists of time and was eventually written down as a classical philosophical system of thought in the Yoga Sutra. Physical postures, however, were not known from texts before the 14th century. The bolily postures and breathing practices as we know them today have probably been passed on for centuries in a variety of forms and contexts on the Indian continent. There is no clear lineage of schools or masters. Ti seems likely that he postures and breathing practices have an inherent strength and effect that have subsisted in spite of changing usage and environments in the East as well as later in the West. Nevertheless, much of what is taught in yoga schools, health spas and health studios nowadays is quite far removed from classical and meditative yoga. Hopefully, Meditative Yoga – integrating body, breath and mind will contribute to a change of direction.

May people have played a role in the production of this book. Anne friis-Baastad, a former head of the Acem School of Yoga, and Anne Thomte, the current head have been untiring in their efforts. We also want to extend our thanks to Thomas Buch-Anderson, Halvor Eifring, Ole Gjems-Onstad, Maja Grythe, Vilde Drageset Haakensen, Sara Hobbel Anders Malmberg, Roland Nilsson, Jonas Paradian, Allesandro Ripellino, Giulia Repellion, Gunnhild Reistad, Ingvill Storli, and Pollyanna von Knorring. Thanks, too, to Vibeke Videm for her help in getting this book translated into English.

Karin Malmberg took the photos of the Yoga Postures and collaborated with me in creating the Book’s visual design.
