Product Description & Reviews

Pilates is the fastest-growing trend in fitness today, with millions enjoying its muscle strengthening and body toning benefits. In this follow-up to her New York Times bestseller The Pilates Body, Brooke Siler provides a safe, effective, and personalized Pilates course for home or travel that allows readers to progress at their own pace, with a master teacher leading the way. This unique, interactive kit contains:- Two 70-minute-plus audio CDs containing eight complete classes- 70 full-color instructional cards with photographs of each pose and breathing and techniques tips- A 64-page workbook with a 20-page journal and a record-keeping section to track progress. Brook Siler was hailed by Vogue as on of America's most sought after Pilates trainers. Author of the New York Times bestseller The Pilates Body, she is owner of the acclaimed re:AB® studio in New York City, where her clients have included Madonna, Liv Tyler, Amber Valletta, and many others. She studies under the tutelage of Romana Kryzanowska, Joseph Pilates' protege for more than 30 years, and now sits on the board of the Pilates Guild®. Whether you're recovering from back surgery or looking for a decent full-body workout, Pilates has something to offer--and this practical kit from well-known guru Brooke Siler pulls a complicated system together with finesse. Emphasizing equal stretching and strengthening of the muscles (especially those throughout the torso, referred to as "the powerhouse"), Pilates mat work is conveniently portable thanks to its total lack of fancy equipment. Combining a video with Pilates is asking for poor muscular alignment and a lot of mental distraction, so while the kit's components may seem a little old-fashioned, they're both effective and appropriate. Two CDs and 70 illustrated flash cards work together to supply visual and oral cues for each exercise; a simple book and exercise journal complete the package. With a portable player, you'll have private instruction in public gyms or hotels without expensive classes or tight schedules. The first disk provides a solid grounding in the fundamentals and progresses up the ladder. Many postures are possible for everyone, regardless of fitness level, and it's also a good backup for advanced students if an accident or illness forces you to start again from scratch. The second disk takes you through the intermediate exercises, some of which may be difficult (or impossible) at first but remain inspiring--Siler's gentle authority and creative metaphors make it easy to visualize a day when we'll all be as lean, strong and flexible as she is. --Jill Lightner

Within the YOGA SUTRA, an ancient text on the practice of yoga, only two verses mention ''asanas'' -- the postures we commonly associate with yoga in the West. Patanjali, the legendary sage and author of this 2,250-year-old work, was concerned not solely with physical, or even mental, development, but also with spiritual development. In fact the original purpose of yoga was -- and remains -- to function as a complete spiritual path where the body serves as a gateway to enlightenment. On THE

The Lost Teachings of Yoga
By Brand: Sounds True, Incorporated

It is estimated that more than 20 million Americans have practiced some form of yoga, yet almost none of them have heard of yoga's early teachers or their insights. While we are familiar with yoga's physical benefits, the original purpose of yoga as a path to inner freedom and enlightenment is embodied by only a few students in the West. Handed down to us throughout the past 5,000 years, the mental and spiritual disciplines of this complete philosophy for living are in danger of vanishing
