The Guided Meditation Handbook

Advice, Meditation Scripts and Hasta Mudra for Yoga Teachers

Jessica Kingsley Publishers, Singing Dragon

Help yoga students to access a deep state of relaxation with this guided meditation handbook. Offering yoga teachers scripts for guided meditations, students can learn how to cultivate positive emotions and let go of negative ones.

Including practical information on how to set the scene for meditation in a yoga class, using music, lighting and props, the book also advises on how to introduce a meditation practice to yoga students. It explores the benefits of meditation for people from all walks of life, including sleep-deprived parents and those suffering from post-traumatic stress. Six scripts are dedicated to Hasta Mudra meditations and utilising the healing power of traditional hand gestures. The scripts can be used to open or close a class, and there is also guidance on how to create original meditations.

This is a lovely, thoughtful and accessible book incorporating shorter guided meditations for the start of class, meditations with hasta mudra, longer more detailed guided meditations and advice on how to create your own. It will provide a useful addition to the toolkit for yoga teachers and trainees. In the author's own words: 'offering your students a little pocket of peace'.
