Journey Into Yin Yoga
Journey Into Yin Yoga Sented by Shon

Take time to decompress. Relieve stress. Reduce anxiety. Face the challenges and joys of life with steadiness and grace. That is what A Journey Into Yin Yoga will help you do. Join world-renowned yoga instructor Travis Eliot as he guides you through this contemporary and effective approach for strengthening your mind, body, and spirit. You will learn about the origins and practice of yin yoga, a passive approach in which poses are held for a few minutes to target the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine. You will slowly and mindfully transition between poses as you gently allow those tissues to stretch, facilitating better circulation and joint health and improving flexibility. Throughout, you will learn the benefits, contraindications, alignment points, and modifications so you can adjust the poses to your needs and body type. Eliot also explains eight breathing techniques and eight meditation practices for improved focus, reduced stress, and enhanced clarity. Ten ready-to-use sequences allow you to target specific goals, including better sleep, spine flexibility, and healthy hips, knees, and shoulders. A Journey Into Yin Yoga presents over 50 yin yoga poses with stunning photos and detailed instruction, along with inspiring quotes, stories, and interviews from celebrities, doctors, and athletes.

The Nuts Cookbook: 30 Breakfast, Dinner and Dessert Recipes That You'll Go Nuts For!

I've been called nuts before, and I am completely proud of that fact! Being nuts is the spice of life! And so is eating nuts! I love the diversity of nuts and have showcased that by incorporating into this cookbook 1 breakfast, 1 dinner, and 1 dessert recipe for each of our 10 featured nuts. While nuts are not low in calories, they are a great source of the 'good fats' that we hear so much about. While most of us are 'watching our weight,' we do need fats in our diet. Nuts have to be my favorite source of fat. We've taken 10 of the world's most popular nuts; almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, chestnuts, hazelnuts, macadamias, peanuts, pecans, pistachios, and walnuts, and come up with just 3 amazing dishes for each. These dishes are only that start of an incredible nutty journey that you can go on once the world of nuts has been opened up to you! As an almond fan, you may be interested in Almond Breakfast Sweet Potatoes. If Brazil nuts are your favorite, you'll be dancing the samba with our Spicy Brazil Nut Chocolate Tart. Cashews may be your thing, so why not grab a Cashew Caramel Espresso Smoothie on the go when you're rushing out in the morning? When it's that time of year and chestnuts are abundant, try our hearty Chestnut Roast. If you can hear the world hazelnut and not immediately think of Nutella, I applaud you because I can't! That's why we have included the Best of Chocolate & Hazelnut Cheesecake. For macadamia fans, Macadamia Mud Pies are sure to be a hit. If your favorite nut (or legume, I know!) is the peanut-like me, then you'll be dying to try Thai Peanut Stir Fry. Pecan lovers, why not try a delicious Baked Apple for a winter snack? Those who love pistachios and have a super sweet tooth will not be able to get enough of our Baklava. And if walnuts are your nut of choice, you will not be disappointed by baked Apple & Walnut Cheesecake. So, if the sound of this delicious food is sending you nuts already, let's get to the kitchen and go nuts!
