Often not finding peace of mind means a recipe for worry and anxiety. If you can relate, you are not alone, one great tool to help is meditation.

We have unique ways of ascribing a variety of emotions to the belly: "My guts are in a knot," "I knew it in my gut," "gut-wrenching," and "No guts, no glory." Yet, too often, we place more emphasis on the way the abdomen looks rather than how it feels and functions. Yoga Abs outlines a series of exercises, yoga poses (asana), and breathing practices (pranayama), designed to achieve optimal health for this crucial area, which houses the organs of both digestion and procreation. Drawing on her experience as a yoga instructor and physical therapist, Judith Hanson Lasater, PhD, discusses the anatomical and philosophical aspects of the abdomen, and offers a set of movements that create awareness of these important muscles, and develop and maintain abdominal strength. Each exercise and asana lists: • the props or supports needed • safety guidelines • practice instructions In addition, she has created a special section called "Everyday Abs," where you will experiment with moving mindfully through your everyday activites, such as driving, cooking, sweeping the floor, and more.

A yoga teacher and physical therapist studies the structure and movement of the human body, revealing how a knowledge of both can improve your yoga practice In Yogabody, author Judith Hanson Lasater emphasizes how an understanding of the human body is essential for understanding the dynamic movement of asana. Drawing on almost forty years of experience as a yoga teacher and physical therapist, she focuses here on macroanatomy and kinesiology in relationship to asana. Organized into five parts—the locomotor system, the vertebral column, the lower extremity, the trunk, and the upper extremity—Yogabody takes you on a fantastic journey through the bones, joints, connective tissue, nerves, and muscles, revealing how these structures interact to create and express movement. Judith conveys her expert knowledge in clear, concise language that makes it easy to understand, to remember, and to integrate. For seasoned teachers, novice teachers, and those in training to teach, Yogabody will help you guide your students to move with more enjoyment and less difficulty. For yoga students, Yogabody will help you practice more confidently on your own. Packed with color anatomical drawings, black-and-white diagrammatic asana illustrations, and helpful charts, you will learn what your body is made of, how it is designed to move, and how to bring the knowledge of both to awaken to asana.

A proven recovery plan for the over 8 million sufferers of repetitive strain injury, and a guide for the prevention of future injuries. Repetitive strain injury (RSI) is a painful, potentially disabling condition that most commonly stems from damage to the upper torso. Long-term misuse or overuse of everyday tools like computers and cash registers results in the painful hands, arms, and neck that are symptomatic of RSI, a condition whose incidence has increased 80 percent in this country since 1990. The Repetitive Strain Injury Handbook is a unique, user-friendly guide that is broken into two parts: (1) the 8-step recovery plan and (2) an RSI prevention guide. The 8-step plan moves RSI sufferers beyond the common denial of this ailment and into a diagnosis and treatment plan with a doctor. It provides: o Nutrition advice o An exercise program o Breathing tips o Traditional and alternative pain management suggestions o A holistic maintenance plan for long-term health The second section is filled with suggestions, stories, and tips for RSI sufferers that will help them live pain-free at home, at work, and in their social and intimate lives. There is also a special section of information on women and RSI, since pregnancy, PMS, osteoporosis, mastectomy, and menopause can all aggravate this condition.

"Because yoga has become more and more popular and integrated into Western culture, millions of people outside of India study and practice yoga. Along with this has been a proliferation in the numbers of yoga teachers. In this book, introduces "yoga myths' in each chapter. These are the beliefs commonly held about how movements should be practiced which in fact do not represent the actual physical anatomical reality the body's structure and how it moves. These yoga myths are very common among virtually all systems of yoga asana practice. This book creates the opportunity to choose something different in our practice and teaching of yoga. This difference is that we now have the power to stop injuring ourselves, and to begin to move with more joy and ease"--

Let go and lighten up your life—includes over 100 exercises and rituals for banishing what’s negative and harmful. As a culture we are driven to acquire, amass, get, use, devour, taste, and try. And of course, it is never enough. Until we figure out that enough is enough, we will never lead a fulfilling life. Unless we let go of possessions, attitudes, emotions, old lovers, or old ideas, we’ll never be able to make true changes. While we’ve gotten very good at taking, consuming, hoarding, devouring, overworking, and inputting more and more and more, we have forgotten how to eliminate, release, and renew—concepts that are imprinted in every cell of our bodies. We need to relearn what our ancestors knew: how to banish. Banishing is the identification and naming of people, things, forces, feelings, thoughts, or ideas that are negative or harmful in one’s life and, through the strength of will and positive power, i.e. love, taking command over these negatives and tossing them out. Denny Sargent, an eclectic ritualist, interweaves his personal testimonial with the theory of banishing harmful factors from our physical environment as well as from our bodies, hearts and minds—through the elements of air, fire, water, earth, and spirit. He also provides more than 100 banishing exercises and rituals, based on traditional practices performed throughout time and around the world
