Do you want to strengthen, lengthen, and sculpt your muscles? Are you in need of losing weight? Can you use help with stubborn belly fat? Would you like to do movements that would help with body aches and pains? If you can say ´´yes´´ to even one of these questions, then Healing Pilates is the book for you! In this book by Ellena Ivanov, you will learn several benefits and factors on practicing Pilates. Introduced by Joseph H. Pilates, Pilates (originally called ´´Contrology´´) is a term used for an exclusive classification of strengthening, stabilizing, and stretching exercises. Pilates is the art of highly controlled and calculated movements, which will have a feeling of a workout rather than some imposed kind of therapy. Pilates retains the ability to aid in getting, through constant practicing, flexibility, control, and strength, and it develops control and endurance in the entire body and posture. In this book, you will learn several reasons that your body is in need of trimming and would benefit from Pilates, such as the same old tiresome routines, decreased immunity levels, reliance on technology as a big cut to physical activity, and being overweight that denotes social humiliation. Healing Pilates delves into the history of Pilates and talks about the return to life through Contrology (the combination of control and logia that Joseph Pilates writes about). 1. Language: English.

After five decades of dieting based on "science"; you´d think Americans would have figured out the fat issue, but they still willingly allow themselves to be manipulated, ie suckered. In this collection of essays, Joan Breibart writes as the person who predicted today´s obesity epidemic way back in 1976, when everyone thought she was nuts. She also forecasted three years ago that "wellness" would be exposed as a front to hide our collective neurosis. Listen to the Introduction and you won´t stop until you have gobbled up all 32 articles. Almost no one has heard Breibart´s take on the subject - it´s all too un-PC - but no one can fail to benefit from a point of view that has been stifled, but should have been heard decades ago. Joan Breibart has spent 55 years in what she calls "the appearance business" developing and marketing services and products for the skin, hair, and body. In the 1990s, she took Pilates from a tiny cult to a household name by founding The Method Pilates® and the PhysicalMind Institute®. She is an inventor who holds four patents, all of which are dedicated to the mechanics of the body. As an author and editor, she has published 20 educational books on Pilates, as well as penning The Body Biz - a novel that reveals the inside scoop of this niche industry. As a pioneer of the mind-body movement, she unknowingly ushered in the rise of "wellness" which became an industry that has done us more harm than good. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joan Breibart.

If you are feeling lethargic or just not up to par and are struggling with other problems such as acne, chronic pain, heartburn, and digestive issues, it may be time to try a body detox. Even if you are simply overweight or addicted to eating the wrong types of food, a detox can go a long way toward helping you get on the right track. Body detox plans have been around for a long time. In order to properly detox, no matter what type you choose to try, the important thing is to be mindful of what goes into your body. In addition to that, take the time to get rest, meditate or pray, and incorporate slow and careful movements into your life, such as yoga, Pilates, or noncompetitive walking or swimming. When you detox your body by feeding it with high-nutrient-dense food or even eliminating all food for a period of time, you help your body heal itself. Controlling exactly what you put into your body will help to reset your organs, stimulate the liver, promote elimination, improve circulation, and refuel the body with high nutrition. 1.
