In Mindful Yoga, Mindful Life, Charlotte Bell, a longtime yoga teacher and insight meditation practitioner, writes about her first meditation retreat: As good as asana practice made me feel, performing poses for an hour a day and then stowing my mat and sleepwalking through the rest of my life was no longer an option. I had to ask myself how, as a city dweller with a full-time job, I could let my practice infiltrate my life so the whole thing became an expression of yoga. In this book Bell 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.
