<p>End chronic pain—for good—with this practical guide from the PBS personality behind <em>Classical Stretch</em> and author of the <em>New York Times</em> bestseller <em>Aging Backwards</em>.</p><p>Chronic pain is the most common cause of long-term disability in the United States. Twenty percent of American adults accept back spasms, throbbing joints, arthritis aches, and other physical pain as an inevitable consequence of aging, illness, or injury. But the human body is not meant to endure chronic pain. Miranda Esmonde-White has spent decades helping professional athletes, ballet dancers, and Olympians overcome potentially career-ending injuries and guiding MS patients and cancer survivors toward pain-free mobility. Now, in <em>Forever Painless</em>, she shows everyone how to heal their aching bodies and live pain free.</p><p>The root of nearly all pain is movement—or lack thereof. We need to move our bodies to refresh, nourish, and revitalize our cells. Without physical activity, our cells become stagnant and decay, accelerating the aging process and causing pain. People who suffer chronic pain often become sedentary, afraid that movement and activity will make things worse, when just the opposite is true: movement is essential to healing. In <em>Forever Painless</em>, Miranda provides detailed instructions for gentle exercise designed to ease discomfort in the feet and ankles, knees, hips, back, and neck—allowing anyone to live happier, healthier, and pain-free no matter their age.</p>

<p>From acclaimed yoga teacher Guru Jagat comes a wildly cool, practical, and beautifully illustrated guide to applying the simple and super-effective technology of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation to everyday life, upgrading your "operating system" inside and out.</p><p>With <em>Invincible Living</em>, Guru Jagat shares a radical way of understanding yoga—not just as something to do in practice, but as a broader principle for living. Candid, encouraging, and irreverent, Guru Jagat shows how Kundalini Yoga—which forgoes complex poses for energy-boosting, breath-driven exercises, quick meditations, and simple poses most of which you can do at your desk—can reset your life and well-being, regardless of your age or background.</p><p>Designed explicitly for everyday people, not ashram-going or gym-bodied yogis, fast, effective Kundalini techniques can be done anywhere, from the car to the conference room. There’s no need to have a bendy back or toned arms. You don’t even need a mat: just a quiet space to clear your head, and as little as a minute out of your day. </p><p>From beauty and self-care to work and relationships, <em>Invincible Living</em> tackles both the mind—from mood elevation and stress reduction to renewed mental clarity—and the body—from anti-aging, and increased metabolism to amped up energy. Packed with tips, exercises, and step-by-step instructions and fully photographed and illustrated in Guru Jagat’s fresh, handmade-meets-hipster style, <em>Invincible Living</em> is fresh take on ancient wisdom: a must-have guide for anyone who wants simple, effective, tools for a supercharged life as taught by a uniquely compelling teacher who upends all preconceptions about yoga.</p><p><em>Invincible Living</em> includes 100 color photographs and illustrations.</p>

With more and more people realizing the need to exercise, gyms are cropping up at every nook and corner, roads are occupied by recreational runners and yoga schools have an enviable waiting list. But along with this has grown the number of injuries and disillusionment at not getting ‘results’. This leads to fads. It’s the exact same place ‘diet’ was five years ago when Rujuta wrote her first book Don’t Lose Your Mind, Lose Your Weight. The basic problem is the complete lack of understanding about exercise, how it works and how to make it work for you. Through this book, Rujuta tackles pretty much every myth and fad to do with exercise, demystifies exercise for everyone and presents it as not a brainless activity but a science which has the potential to combat all lifestyle disorders including diabetes and obesity, way better than any drug. Strength training, Cardio and Yoga get a detailed chapter each along with their pre- and post workout meals, an often neglected but crucial aspect.So whether you are a beginner or want to take your workouts to the next level, the sample training schedules and real life workout examples with analysis and modifications will bridge the gap between knowing and doing and ensure that you are in a position to start and/or progress with a sensible, doable and a wholesome exercise plan.

Are you frustrated that your once lovely dimple-free hips, butt and thighs are slowly being lost to the ravages of cellulite?<br /><br />Sexy legs on a woman are greatly admired by men and women alike.<br /><br />To be sure, loss of beauty is no great cause for alarm. But does that mean you should stand by and allow the passage of time to rob you of it unnecessarily?<br /><br />Not if you are Carolyn Hansen, former champion bodybuilder.<br /><br />Written for the ladies, Carolyn's "Hot Legs Workout" focuses on what women can do to not only forestall the loss of feminine graces, but restore them.<br /><br />Cellulite can strike a deep chord of fear in a woman when she first spots the tell-tale signs reflected back at her in the bathroom mirror. And for good reason. By the time cellulite is visibly present the damage has been done and it is more than skin deep.<br /><br />Most women wonder why their once firm flesh has suddenly begin to sink and dimple. But it has not happened overnight. Nor has their skin necessarily lost its vibrancy and youthfulness.<br /><br />What HAS been lost is muscle.<br /><br />The secret to banishing cellulite from your body is to restore the muscle that once inflated the area of your hips, butt and thighs.<br /><br />Inside the "Hot Legs Workout" guide you'll learn that the largest muscle groups in the body reside in the legs. This means that not only do your legs do the bulk of the work as you go about your daily tasks, but they contribute significantly to your body's ability to burn fat.<br /><br />That's because your metabolism, your body's "heat engine", is powered mainly by the muscles in your body. The more muscle you have, the higher your metabolic volume, and the easier it is to burn fat and move toward your ideal body weight.<br /><br />So not only does proper strength training build the muscles of your legs, it burns fat - the outcome of which is improved health and visible restoration of the once firm flesh that covered your hips, butt and thighs.<br /><br />The truth is that you CAN be sexy again, at any age, if you rebuild the muscle that is the hallmark of youth and beauty.<br /><br />But the health improvements you'll enjoy when you begin exercising your legs with the workouts in this guide don't stop at the visible improvements you'll notice.<br /><br />Besides LOOKING younger, you'll FEEL younger too. Part of this is due to the increase in bone strength you'll enjoy as a result of moving weights with your body. Osteoporosis, or decreasing bone density, is a real concern for women as they age.<br /><br />It takes more than the occasional glass of milk or a calcium supplement to ward off the effects of age on bone strength. Putting your legs through a proper strength-building workout is the ideal way to reinvigorate the cell tissues of the bone and stimulate the growth you need to maintain strength and mobility.<br /><br />Within the exercise routine section of the "Hot Legs Workout" guide you'll discover the two most important exercises that a woman can do to stimulate muscle growth in not only her legs, but the other major muscles of her body too. In fact, these two exercises give more bang for the buck than any other that has been devised since they were first introduced in the late 1800s.<br /><br />And if you think for a moment that these exercises that build strength and muscle might not be in the best interest of a woman who wants to look as feminine as she possibly can, try telling that to the Victoria's Secret models who incorporate these "cellulite buster" movements into their own workout routines.<br /><br />The lingerie models aren't the only ladies who benefit from the kinds of workouts outlined in the "Hot Legs Workout" guide. Ballet dancers, with their strong, supple, and graceful bodies are practitioners too - as are celebrities who hire personal trainers to help them maintain the kind of body that keeps them in movies and on the pages of Hollywood gossip and beauty magazines.<br /><br />But you don't have to be a star to enjoy the benefits of a workout designed to build hot sexy legs. You only need to know how to go about it, and with the "Hot Legs Workou
