Description

In Strength Training on the Ball, Colleen Craig shows readers of all fitness levels how to build strong bones, improve balance, and reduce fat while toning and defining the body. Combining the unique functions of the exercise ball with the endurance and flexibility benefits of Pilates-based strength training, Craig presents over 140 exercises using weights, balls, bands, and the body's own resistance. She introduces innovative work using two balls for developing core stability, the hallmark of the Pilates approach and a key to building a strong body and functional movement patterns. Her exercise variations make strength training safe for beginners, children, teens, and older adults and challenging enough for the experienced athlete.

Strength Training on the Ball is modeled after Craig's groundbreaking and bestselling works Pilates on the Ball and Abs on the Ball. Step-by-step instructions and photographs outline every exercise, and each chapter contains checkpoints to help readers set realistic yet motivating goals. Personal stories throughout the book illustrate how strength training can improve quality of life. The book concludes with three specialized strength-training workouts: a therapeutic workout for those recovering from injuries, a basic workout for beginners, and a challenging workout for athletes and gym enthusiasts.

COLLEEN CRAIG, author of the bestselling Pilates on the Ball and Abs on the Ball, is a certified Stott Pilates trainer and a writer. She lives in Toronto and teaches workshops worldwide.

Charing, Howard G
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company

After surviving a serious elevator crash in London, Howard G. Charing found he had developed healing touch as well as the ability to hear voices and experience visions--just as a healer in Italy had predicted only a week before the accident. He began using his abilities to heal but felt he needed more guidance and training. He first connected with a national spiritual healing organization, only to be told he was doing everything wrong. Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.

The Voynich Manuscript The Voynich Manuscript
Clemens, Raymond
Yale University Press

Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...

The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context) The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context)
Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press

Limited to 800 copies

The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
