—Stephen Cope, author of
The Wisdom of Yoga: A Seeker's Guide to Extraordinary Living

Before I knew Charlotte Bell, I knew of Charlotte Bell. Her impeccable reputation and high standards seemed legendary to me. Then I met her and found her to be an ordinary person living an extraordinary life. I am thrilled that she decided to write about it in this book. This book is a story of the way one woman has authentically and powerfully woven the eight limbs of yoga into her very busy Western life. This book is an invitation. It invites us to explore the Yoga Sutras as a means of exploring our own busy and sometimes confusing lives. This book is a how-to manual. It gives us practical suggestions on how to reap the benefits of yoga without giving up the world we live in. Ultimately this book is a tribute, to all of us who have ever wondered where the "yoga industry" is headed, who see yoga being branded, owned, and made exclusive, and who see self-proclaimed gurus taking credit for another person's growth. Charlotte reassures us that the true spirit and power of yoga will prevail.

In Mindful Yoga, Mindful Life, Charlotte Bell weaves in her deep personal life experiences to give the reader a comprehensive guide to a spiritual practice that is captivating and down to earth. With her many years of yoga practice and vipassana meditation, she comprehensively compares Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, including the eight limbs of yoga, with Buddhist philosophy and shows how each philosophy and practice support each other. Charlotte also has an extensive musical background and brings a lyrical quality into her writing that is creative and compelling. I highly recommend this book to my students and all students of yoga who want to explore yoga in all walks of their lives.

Mindful Yoga, Mindful Life is an open invitation to bring yoga to your life. Drawing on many years of yoga study, Charlotte Bell presents its core teachings, artfully weaving in personal stories from her own journey. Part memoir, part instruction, the result is a warm and accessible guidebook to be sampled, savored, and shared. Receive this book as a gift, whether you are just beginning yoga or have been on the path for years.

—Yael Calhoun, coauthor of
Create a Yoga Practice for Kids: Fun, Flexibility, and Focus

In this intensely personal book, Charlotte Bell's life stories flow seamlessly into a thoughtful discussion of the yoga philosophy that has shaped and supported her daily life for decades. While seemingly simple, the book radiates wisdom, humor, and hope. Highly recommended for all levels of students of yoga.

—Judith Hanson Lasater, Ph.D., P.T., author of A Year of Living Your Yoga: Daily Practices to Shape Your Life
