"Mind Fitness Workout" is a unique exercise DVD that gives an extra advantage in losing weight and inches. It achieves this with special music played during a one-on-one workout. In the music, there are positive weight-loss suggestions repeated continually with a technique only your subconscious mind (Sub-Mind) can hear. This technique enables the positive suggestions to directly influence the Sub-Mind creating a process called Subliminal Persuasion. By continually using Subliminal Persuasion you will reinforce the positive behaviours you need to lose weight and inches automatically!The DVD includes: three 12-minute Fitness Workouts, each with various exercises and different levels of intensity (the first level for beginners), and one 30-minute Fitness Workout that combines all three; subliminal suggestions in the music in all four Fitness Workouts, as well as an option to play all the workouts without the suggestions in the music; directions for performing a Mind Fitness Workout; how and why Subliminal Persuasion works; plus a bonus of nine minutes of music with positive weight-loss suggestions for your Sub-Mind. Just relax and listen to the soothing music when you are not exercising and still receive the benefits of Subliminal Persuasion. No equipment is needed for a Mind Fitness Workout, and it can be used in conjunction with any exercise program or diet. The approximate running time is 120 minutes.
Get in to the hardest poses and get out alive Five years ago your average yoga class contained a few down dogs, a standing tree and a cushion for meditation.

And then post it on Instagram. Whether enlightenment is achievable through a one-armed handstand or not, crowded yoga studios are not the ideal places to start nailing risky moves, so this handy guide is here to demystify the big poses in full technicolour. Most importantly, you will learn how to take impressive pictures of your journey to enlightenment, so you can win at yoga, publicly. From sunset splits to backbends in Bali, packed with drills for strength and flexibility and tips for costume and hair, How to Win at Yoga makes those apparently impossible yoga poses possible, and look great on the 'gram.

Tantra is an ancient science dealing with many different systems for increasing the speed of human evolution. It predates all of the world's existing religions, and provides the esoteric basis on which many of these religions were later based. Tantra provides practical techniques applicable by men and women of every temperament and spiritual level, and aims at turning every action of life into an act of sadhana, or spiritual practice. The practices included in this book are based in tantra, though many of them have been forgotten for thousands of years. The task of rediscovering them and putting them in a form which can be understood and practised by people of this age has been done solely by Swami Satyananda Saraswati, as his personal contribution to a civilisation searching for a deeper understanding of the basis of life.
