Until recently, the effortless "Zone" of peak performance was only within the reach of serious athletes. Now, with Body, Mind, and Sport, anyone can reach the Zone, regardless of fitness level. Designed to accommodate a variety of individual fitness needs, the Body, Mind, and Sport program is split into two levels. Level 1 is for non-athletes who want to improve overall fitness; Level 2 is for those who want to train for competitive or recreational purposes. Your own unique mind-body type is taken into account to guide you in achieving your personal best without stress or strain. In this revised and updated edition of Body, Mind, and Sport, fitness expert and trainer John Douillard outlines a program in which your individual seasonal constitution-Winter, Spring, or Summer-determines what exercises or sports are best suited to your mind-body type and what foods you should eat for optimum results. Using the Body, Mind, and Sport approach you can decrease heart and breath rates while improving both fitness and performance. Dozens of world-class athletes, including Martina Navratilova and Billie Jean King, have used John Douillard's expert breathing techniques, dietary recommendations, and seasonally balanced workouts. Now you can, too! From the Trade Paperback edition.

Der britische Polarforscher Ernest Shackleton und seine 27 Männer überlebten 1914 den Untergang des Schiffes «Endurance» im arktischen Packeis. Dass die Männer nach fast zweijährigem Überlebenskampf unter härtesten Bedingungen körperlich gesund und emotional stabil nach Hause zurückkehren konnten, war dem Krisenmanagement und der Führungskunst Shackletons zu verdanken. Er verwandelte eine Katastrophe in einen Triumph. Margot Morrell und Stephanie Capparell zeigen, wie Führungskräfte aus Wirtschaft, Forschung und Politik heute von Shackletons Erfahrung profitieren können.

The range of populations examined includes women children dependent and habitual exercisers and participants throughout the life span. The book will help shape the direction of the field of exercise psychology for many years to come and it will do much to encourage young professionals to enter the field and to pursue further study. The text spends considerable time exploring the relationship between exercise and personality self-esteem self-concept mood alteration and motivation -- concepts and features of being human that are all intimately related. Students moving toward the exercise professions will gain a solid background in key issues surrounding exercise and health and make great strides forward in becoming competent and compassionate practitioners.

Heilgeheimnisse aus dem Regenwald und moderne Wissenschaft. Alberto Villoldo ist einer der bekanntesten und meistgelesenen Schamanen unserer Zeit. Als er eine niederschmetternde Diagnose bekommt – fünf verschiedene Arten von Hepatitis, toxische Bakterien im gesamten Körper und Parasiten im Gehirn – ist er dem Tode nah. Zum ersten Mal in seinem Leben steht er vor der Herausforderung, das Wissen, das er seit Jahrzehnten selbst lehrt, radikal an sich selbst anzuwenden. Mit Erfolg! Villoldo hat sich selbst geheilt – mit One Spirit Medizin, einer höchst wirksamen Synthese aus uralten schamanischen Methoden wie Fasten, Meditieren und Visionssuche und aktuellsten Erkenntnissen aus der modernen Wissenschaft. Diese umfassen das Entgiften von Körper und Geist durch Superfoods und Nahrungsergänzungsmittel, das Ausschalten der »Todesuhr« in unseren Zellen durch Beeinflussung der Mitochondrien, Energiearbeit zur Reparatur von Gehirn und Körper auf Quantenebene und eine revolutionäre Methode, in nur sechs Wochen einen grunderneuerten, vitalen und widerstandsfähigen Körper zu kreieren. Mit One Spirit Medizin gelingt Villoldo der lange überfällige Brückenschlag vom Jahrtausende alten schamanischen Erfahrungsschatz zu mordernsten medizinischen Erkenntnissen. Mit vielen Übungen und Rezepten.
