9780007133284: Journey Into Power

Wake up the power inside

and turn your life around!

Whether you are looking to lose weight, trying to increase your strength and stamina, hoping to sharpen your mental edge, or seeking to go deeper within, "Journey into Power" can take you there. Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga isn't just the ultimate workout, it's the ultimate life transformation program.

In this unique and inspiring book, Baron Baptiste, one of the world's most dynamic and sought-after master yoga teachers, brings us the same revolutionary program for body, mind, and spirit that has changed the bodies and lives of Hollywood celebrities, all-star athletes, and thousands of people just like you. In his refreshing and iconoclastic style, he shows us that the key to true power is not to chase an ideal version of ourselves, but to reveal the perfect self already within. Here are just some of the benefits you can expect from using this book:

  • Strong, lean muscles and a shedding of unwanted pounds.

  • Laserlike mental clarity and focus.

  • An easy release of the beliefs and habits that hold you back.

  • An inner oasis of calm and composure.

  • Inspiration to live authentically every day of your life.

    The program is divided into five parts:

    REWIRING YOUR MIND is where it all begins. Yoga teaches you to manage your mental and emotional states. By learning to pay attention to the signals our minds are sending, and rewiring our negative beliefs, we find ways to break free of whatever holds us back.

    DAILY POWER YOGA PRACTICE is the heart of the book. With the energy, enthusiasm, and clarity that have made him such an incredibly popular teacher, Baron shows us how Baptiste Power VinyasaYoga starts the positive energy moving and ultimately enables us to transform our bodies and our lives.

    THE CLEANSING DIET is not a strict regimen. It's about learning to listen to your body and intuition so that you can eat in the way that is best for you.

    MEDITATION FOR TRUTHFUL LIVING is about learning to cultivate stillness and live from the core of your authentic self. Meditation practice isn't about sitting in the lotus position -- it's about aligning ourselves with the truth that can set us free.

    JOURNEYING INTO REAL LIFE shows us how to apply everything we've learned from this amazing program to our daily lives so that we can experience truly astonishing results at every level.

    Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga is the ultimate commitment that yields the ultimate transformation. It heals, detoxifies, and electrifies body and mind at their deepest levels. You will find your true strength, your real self, and a new way to live that is both authentic and joyful!

    Review:

    "Every single one of us is suffering from the same problem," says Baron Baptiste. "We are not living from our authentic selves." Journey into Power offers more than yoga poses; it also aims to "rewire your mind" and "recharge your spiritual batteries."

    Baptiste's program, based on his weeklong "Journey into Power" boot camps, integrates the physical and spiritual components of yoga. His daily "Power Vinyasa Yoga Practice," done in a heated room, is a challenging series of 54 yoga poses, one flowing into another. The poses are well illustrated and clearly described, including modifications. Baptiste encourages you to reach your edge ("where we come right up against ourselves and what we can do and be") by holding a pose for a breath longer than you think you can or stretching a quarter-inch farther.

    Eight spiritual/psychological principles, described cogently and often lyrically, guide the transformation process. Principle 5, "In Order to Heal You Need to Feel," has this introduction: "The real irony of spiritual growth is that instead of being some miraculous experience, it feels a lot more like going to pieces."

    The rest of the program includes a cleansing diet, daily meditation, and a strong, spiritual focus in daily living. Journey into Power is highly recommended for people ready for a major physical, emotional, and spiritual change. --Joan Price
