“All yoga practices are preparation for focusing the mind during meditation,” notes renowned yogi Stephen Sturgess. In his new book, Sturgess demonstrates how to use a wide range of yoga meditation practices as a portal to higher consciousness.
Initial chapters explain what yoga meditation is and why it is so useful in our busy, modern lives. Here, Sturgess gives insight into the Eight Limbs of Yoga (an established approach to the successive stages of yoga) and enlightens us on the workings of our internal energy system – all of which lay the foundation for a deeper understanding of the practices to come. Sturgess then guides us through the key seated meditation postures and a range of helpful mudras (hand gestures) and bandhas (energetic seals) before going on to offer clear, step-by-step guidance on a wide choice of the most effective yoga postures, purification practices, breathing exercises and meditation techniques to still the mind and awaken the inner spirit. In the final chapter he recommends how to put these practices together in the form of nourishing daily routines to suit your individual needs, as well as giving advice on how to establish an overall healthy lifestyle, based on ancient Indian health traditions.
Beautifully illustrated, highly practical and deeply inspirational, this is the ideal guide to establishing a regular holistic health program. It will allow you to connect with your true divine Inner Self, realize your fullest potential for creative thought and action, and establish balance, harmony and happiness in every aspect of your life.

Editorial Reviews

"Yoga Meditation is a clear, concise introduction into yogic practices, as well as a how-to guide with step by step instructions and practices broken down by type and length. Stephen Sturgess is firmly rooted in the Kriya Yoga tradition of Paramhansa Yogananda and its teaching of Raja Yoga and Meditation ... Sturgess’s description and conceptualisation of the practices and teachings are clear, concise, and decidedly non-provocative. For example, he skirts carefully around vegetarianism or sexual abstinence within the yamas and the niyamas of Patanjali. Instead he focuses on what core ideas could be useful to a modern audience, all the while not losing the heart or deeper meaning of the spiritual practices. His use of the chakras, nadis, and other subtle energetic experiences is similarly straightforward."- (April 4, 2014)
