Stresskiller, Fitmacher, Schmerzlöser: Yoga werden viele segensreiche Eigenschaften zugeschrieben. Doch was ist dran an diesen Versprechen? Was kann Yoga wirklich? Nach jahrelangen Recherchen blickt William J. Broad, Pulitzerpreisträger und Bestsellerautor, hinter die Kulissen der beliebten Meditationspraxis und zeigt, was tatsächlich mit Yoga erreicht werden kann, wo aber auch seine Risiken und Gefahren liegen - und warum. Er nimmt den Leser mit auf eine fundiert-unterhaltsame Reise von den alten Yoga-Archiven in Kalkutta bis zu den führenden medizinischen Forschungslabors, von sagenumwobenen Ashrams bis zu schweißtreibenden Yoga-Studios mit ihren selbst ernannten Meistern. Er entschleiert Mythen, entdeckt tatsächlichen Nutzen und zeigt, was Yoga wirklich kann - und was nicht. Eine Pflichtlektüre für alle, die mit Yoga zu tun haben.

Traumatic events are more than a narrative or singular event in a person's life; the body remembers traumatic events and can experience them over and over, even after many years have passed. This book shows how trauma-sensitive yoga can be used in individual therapy and in groups to overcome trauma, by calming the nervous system and helping people to come out of dissociative states. The book also shows teachers how to detect when certain postures trigger anxiety, and offers ways to support healing in general yoga classes. Drawing on her experience as both trauma therapist and yoga teacher, the author focuses on the body-mind connection and presents asanas and breathing exercises that can help traumatised patients re-engage and take control of their bodies.

The practice of yoga has become hugely popular in the West. Most people assume (and many claim) that 'postural' yoga - characterized by the familiar, demanding, physical poses - is an ancient Indian tradition. But in fact, as Mark Singleton shows, this type of yoga is quite a recent development, with its beginnings traceable to the middle of the 19th-century. Singleton here presents the first in-depth study of the origins of postural yoga, challenging many current notions about its nature and origins.

From an elite Special Operations physical trainer, an ingeniously simple, rapid-results, do-anywhere program for getting into amazing shape For men and women of all athletic abilities! As the demand for Special Operations military forces has grown over the last decade, elite trainer Mark Lauren has been at the front lines of preparing nearly one thousand soldiers, getting them lean and strong in record time. Now, for regular Joes and Janes, he shares the secret to his amazingly effective regimen—simple exercises that require nothing more than the resistance of your own bodyweight to help you reach the pinnacle of fitness and look better than ever before. Armed with Mark Lauren’s motivation techniques, expert training, and nutrition advice, you’ll see rapid results by working out just thirty minutes a day, four times a week—whether in your living room, yard, garage, hotel room, or office. Lauren’s exercises build more metabolism-enhancing muscle than weightlifting, burn more fat than aerobics, and are safer than both, since bodyweight exercises develop balance and stability and therefore help prevent injuries. Choose your workout level—Basic, 1st Class, Master Class,and Chief Class—and get started, following the clear instructions for 125 exercises that work every muscle from your neck to your ankles. Forget about gym memberships, free weights, and infomercial contraptions. They are all poor substitutes for the world’s most advanced fitness machine, the one thing you are never without: your own body. From the Trade Paperback edition.
