Every day more and more people who are burned out from their exercise programs turn to yoga and Pilates. Traditional yoga focuses on breathing, flexibility, and quieting the mind, while Pilates matwork concentrates on strength and power from the center. But what if one program offered the best of both? Pilates and yoga instructor, dancer, and personal trainer Jonathan Urla has done just that by creating Yogilates™.

Fully illustrated with black-and-white photgraphs, Yogilates™ is perfect for those looking to improve their health and well-being with the latest, most effective mind/body exercise program.

Emphasizing safety along with fitness, Yogilates™ shows you how to assess your posture and flexibility and gives guidelines for progressing in a sensible manner. Yogilates™ delivers an accessible and efficient fitness regimen you can do for the rest of your life to achieve the best of your life, regardless of age or fitness level.

In a straightforward and intelligent manner, Jonathan presents the Yogilates™ philosophy and shows the Essential Awareness Exercises that will introduce you to his unique blend of Pilates and yoga techniques. Let Jonathan be your guide as you discover your physical potential, whether you are working with the Beginner Series or advancing your Yogilates™ practice. See and feel your body get stronger and longer. Gain a better sense of balance and greater flexibility. Feel the difference in how you perform all kinds of physical activities from athletics and dancing to walking and even sitting.

Learn how to correct poor posture, breathe more effectively, relieve stress, and tone the entire body with Yogilates™. No special equipment is needed. No costly gyms to join. No previous experience in yoga or Pilates is necessary. All you need is some floor space and Jonathan to take you through the Yogilates™ prgram and on to a new level of health, fitness, and well-being.

About the Author:

Jonathan Urla has been a prominent figure in the world of dance and fitness for over 15 years. His work as a fitness and movement specialist established him as one of New York's most respected personal trainers. His strong interest in the evolution of effective, intelligent exercise led him to the study of Pilates and yoga. USA to publish HB June 02; tpb March 03

From Publishers Weekly:

Personal trainer and yoga instructor Urla has created (and trademarked) Yogilates, a fitness regimen that combines calming Hatha yoga with Pilates, a body alignment system developed by deceased posture guru Joseph H. Pilates. If the combo seems a bit complicated, it is, and Urla's how-to manual doesn't make it easier to understand. Lessons such as "how to establish the pelvis in a neutral position" or "how to lift the legs into you using the core muscles" might be manageable if it weren't for their hard-to-follow instructions. The remaining third of the book is devoted to advanced Yogilates. As in previous sections, Urla as well as chiseled yoga and Pilates teachers grimly illustrate the positions. But even Urla warns "not to proceed in haste." He also urges, in addition to thrice-weekly Yogilates sessions, aerobics three to five days a week. Ultimately, trying to follow Urla's fitness program is the real workout-and may inspire readers to unfurl their yoga mats just to relax. b&w photos.
