Mindful Yoga, Mindful Life
Author: Charlotte Bell
In Mindful Yoga, Mindful Life, Charlotte Bell, a longtime yoga teacher and insight meditation practitioner,
brings together the teachings of Patanjali and the Buddha. She describes how she took Patanjali's
eightfold path, as set forth in his Yoga Sutras, and the Buddha's Practice of mindfulness into her daily
life—with practicality and precision, grace and guts. Her suggestions about how to bring mindfulness into
asana will deepen your yoga practice; her recommended daily practices, or Reflections, will reveal new
inner landscapes. Mindful Yoga, Mindful Life is an inspiring guide for anyone seeking to live a yogic life.
Charlotte Bell began practicing yoga in 1982 and began teaching in 1986. Following a 1989 trip to Pune,
India, she received teacher certification from B. K. S. Iyengar. She combines the practice of yoga with
insight meditation. A life-long musician, she pays oboe and English horn with the Salt Lake Symphony
and performs with Scherzando Winds, blue haiku, and Red Rcok Rondo. She lives in Salt Lake City.
