Meditative yoga is very different from the hurried, sweaty, gym-like yoga of many schools around the world. It brings the mind to silence and focuses on slow movement yoga with abdominal breathing for maximum relaxation. Says founder of Acem School of Yoga, Dr. Are Holen, in a recent interview.
When Ignasi Corrella read about Acem Meditation in the big Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia, he (like several hundred others) went ahead and learnt the technique. Then he asked a local yoga teacher who writes for the paper what he thought.
