List price: $19.95
Author: Joseph H. Pilates

First published in 1934, this new reprint of Your Health includes Joseph Pilates’ early Twentieth Century philosophies, principles, and theories about health and fitness. He bases his work on the concept of a balanced body and mind, drawing on the approach espoused by the early Greeks. While some of his personal philosophies reflected early 20th Century viewpoints, his athletic and fitness doctrines were years ahead of his time. Readers will learn his observations and conclusions about people's approach to physical fitness. He describes the results of decades of scientific study, experimentation and research into the variety of troubles and ills that upset the balance of body and mind. Pilates makes extraordinary claims about the benefits of his defined science of "Contrology" and very specifically defines this science for all to read and understand. In this book, he exemplifies and clarifies the beneficial impact of his work.

YinSights: A Journey into the Philosophy & Practice of Yin Yoga

YinSights: A Journey into the Philosophy & Practice of Yin Yoga Lowest new price: $17.40
Lowest used price: $12.18
List price: $23.95
Author: Bernie Clark

Why practice yoga or Yin Yoga in particular? YinSights, a new book by Bernie Clark, has the answers. In YinSights, Clark explores the benefits of yoga, as viewed by both the Eastern and Western worlds and relates how it affects the body and mind. Although more and more students are embracing the Yin-side of yoga, Yin Yoga is still relatively unknown. Filling a void in yoga literature, YinSights serves as a practical guide for students interested in understanding Yin Yoga. YinSights is divided into two main sections. The first investigates the benefits of yoga on the physical body, the energetic body, and the mind/emotional body. Clark presents three points of view – those of the yogis in India, the Daoists in China, and the medical and scientific researchers of the West. The second section explores the practice of Yin Yoga in detail, and several flows are offered each with different themes. Slower versions of the normally active or yang Sun Salutations are provided, as well as even gentler ways to stimulate the flow of prana, chi, or energy. While YinSights illustrates how to practice Yin Yoga, it is not just for those seeking knowledge about Yin Yoga in particular. The book also discusses the advantages of all styles of yoga and will be of interest to every yoga student. “Bernie Clark's Yinsights is one of the best yoga resources now available, no matter what your preferred style of practice.” – Paul Grilley, author of Yin Yoga

The Complete Book of Pilates for Men: The Lifetime Plan for Strength, Power & Peak Performance Lowest new price: $8.58
Lowest used price: $1.49
List price: $19.99
Author: Daniel Lyon
Brand: imusti

A comprehensive, take-anywhere exercise program designed to improve men's strength, flexibility, balance, and posture

Have years of office work wreaked havoc on your posture? Could your tennis or golf game use a boost? Do you appear or feel older than your age? Or do you carry yourself in a manner that expresses strength, power, and peak performance to everyone around you?

In recent years, Pilates has become a popular exercise program, especially among women. Many books on the subject show lithe female bodies stretched across their covers. Top Pilates instructor Daniel Lyon Jr. aims to break the preconception that Pilates only benefits and appeals to women. "This couldn't be further from the truth," he asserts. "Joseph Pilates was a cigar-smoking boxer, acrobat, and gymnast, and he developed his exercise program from that background for men first." Likewise, Lyon designed this book specifically with men in mind, as the number of male Pilates practitioners -- among them professional athletes, actors, businessmen, and other high-profile personalities -- has rocketed to about three million and continues to grow.

For athletes, working stiffs, and men recovering from injuries, Lyon offers the first comprehensive exercise program of its kind. He walks you through forty "traditional mat" exercises and more than sixty "reformer on the mat" exercises -- each one brilliantly illustrated -- in an inspiring self-guided program that adapts to all experience levels and requires nothing more than floor space, an exercise mat, and the desire to look and feel your best. Using the Pilates method of engaging the strongest parts of the body, or the "powerhouse" (Joseph Pilates's term for the abdominals, hips, lower back muscles, and buttocks), and integrating all other body parts from this core, Lyon's program targets trouble spots for men and helps them achieve strong, lean, masculine physiques.

The Complete Book of Pilates for Men will deliver quick and long-term results to any man who seeks optimal fitness and a competitive edge in all aspects of his life.
