Yoga for Weight Loss is a groundbreaking regime that stops the endless cycle of dieting and weight gain, by putting you back in control of your body, your eating habits and your attitude to your weight.

Drawing on the gentle Hatha yoga technique, which works to balance the body in order to gain optimum health, fitness and confidence, this programme can be practised by absolutely anyone – young and old, beginner or expert. Each chapter provides 3 to 4 tried and tested yoga exercises and stretches, and builds up to a 40-minute routine of energising, motivational and relaxing postures for body and soul. The eating plan and yoga programme work in unison for maximum effect. The diet helps you to lose the weight as the yoga helps to streamline your shape, as it optimises your metabolism through effective breathing techniques and postures. Plus, it gives you the strength of mind and determination to keep the weight off.

Based on a hugely successful course, developed and run by the author and her husband, this straightforward programme will fit neatly around your everyday life. It is perfect for women who want to try something new when, perhaps, all other diets have failed. COmmit to the yoga workout and suggested eating plan everyday for only 4 weeks and you will see the results you deserve.

The exercise ball is the next yoga... a universal fitness craze that not only trims and tones the body, but transforms posture and develops mental focus through the art of achieving total balance. Working with the ball allows a much wider range of movement than floor-based programmes and can therefore isolate, strengthen and stretch every muscle in your body.

This is the first ball book to combine core stability workouts, toning exercises, cardiovascular aerobics, delicious recipes and a sensible eating plan to help you achieve gradual, sustainable weight loss. When practised regularly, results can be gained quickly. Working out with an exercise ball will soon give you long, lean muscles and the enviable posture of a dancer. The exercise ball prevents and aids back and postural problems by strengthening our core stability muscles – it is an essential piece of equipment for all health and fitness professionals. American actress Ming-Na of hit TV series, ER, insists that it was the 30 minutes a day on the ball that helped her regain her figure, post pregnancy. Supermodel Naomi Campbell is also a convert. Exercise balls are fun, versatile, easy to store and cheap and available to buy on the high street or in your local health and fitness centre.

Dance is a universal language, spoken and understood by all. It knows no barriers and traverses time and space. The best Dance Moves in the World...Ever! is an irreverent, hilariously illustrated guide to the wonderful world of the dance floor, covering everything from the most basic moves to the very advanced, and from firmly established favourites to those breaking out in new directions.

Dance moves are like building blocks that can either enliven a simple side-to-side shuffle, or be joined up to create a dazzling night-long display. Unlike the rigours of a tango or line dance, they are flexible and allow for much greater personalisation and creativity. Inspiration can be found in any number of sources, from stirring a cup of coffee to taking a shower: as George Clinton said, 'free your mind... and your ass will follow.' The Best Dance Moves in the World...Ever! will therefore appeal to everyone – beginners, professionals, even those scared witless by the mere sight of a glitter ball.

Partnering clear step-by-step instructions with easily understood illustrations, readers' health, self-confidence, and ability to have a good time are all given a thorough workout. Putting fun into the funk, this book is an indispensable dance guide for movers and shakers... everywhere!
