Experience Yoga Nidra: Guided deep relaxation
Experience Yoga Nidra: Guided deep relaxation
by Swami Janakananda Saraswati
Edition: Audio CD

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect in fact essential for stress relieve, 9 Nov. 2014
Wow this is the best relaxation you can imagine. The CD has 2 tracks 20min and 45min so easy to use regularly even if time short. If you suffer stress, anxiety, chronic pain or any condition where you need to relax this is a must. It is well documented scientifically that regular relaxation practice by anyone will improve your health, your outlook and your ability to cope with life - if you want to get the benefits of relaxation but find it difficult to relax or concentrate this is perfect.
The guided relaxation keeps the mind focused so you don't start thinking of other things but there are no whale songs or other annoying music backgrounds.

They still work - these exercises are boring BUT incorporate them into a more general routine and they will still slim and shape your arms and legs beautifully.

5.0 out of 5 stars How to set up a PT business not how to run a PT session, 9 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you are starting out as a personal trainer this is an excellent resource - it is not a book about routines and exercises you can use for your clients - it explains importance of logo designs, marketing, copyright, legal protection and loads more - it is abook about how to set up a personal training business not how to run a PT session.

Somatics: Reawakening the Mind's Control of Movement, Flexibility, and Health
by Thomas Hanna
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.19

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent exercise for those who hate to exercise and perfect for those who love to exercise., 9 Nov. 2014

If you are just looking for a daily routine that is easy to follow and will improve you whole body's health; relieve tension and reduce muscle pain and help you move more easily this book will do just that. It only works if you actually do the exercises regularly but they are meant to be done gently and slowly so perfect if you want to be healthier but hate gyms and sweaty workouts. The slower, the gentler the more effective :)
This book has given my Yoga and Pilates teaching a whole new edge - and me a whole new outlet. I have been so impressed by how these exercise can release muscle tension and improve mobility I incorporate them in all my classes and have gone on to study the whole subject in more depth. If you teach Yoga or Pilates these exercises will put you ahead of the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading if you want to know real Pilates, 9 Nov. 2014
The instructions are very basic and sometimes confusing but if you want to know what real Pilates is about this is a must. You may decide you prefer modern Pilates methods but if you teach it is good to know the origins and original methods which is very different to current styles.
