Blends the ancient science of yoga with the unique training possibilities of the exercise ball to create an innovative and effective workout.

· A unique combination of Hatha Yoga asanas and ball work that builds lean muscles while providing natural stress relief.

· Includes a comprehensive workout adaptable to the needs of the beginner and those with a more advanced practice.

Written by Certified Medical Exercise Specialist Carol Mitchell, Yoga on the Ball combines the science of yoga with the technology of the exercise ball to create a workout that can be tailored to all fitness levels. Moving through yoga postures while using the exercise ball is meditation in motion. It allows you to engage several muscle groups simultaneously to create a total body workout and to lose weight naturally as your metabolism increases with special breathing techniques. The exercise ball provides a soft and cushioning base for the strong stretches and graceful movements of the yoga exercises, and with only a slight roll of the ball, the deep stretches can be altered to target different areas of the muscles.

The complete workout lets you choose between sculpting your muscles with cardiovascular and muscle-toning exercises or relaxing your body and mind with stretching and breathing exercises. Yoga on the Ball pairs breathing and movement to create a rejuvenating flow of energy that will realign your mind and body, leaving you feeling calm, strong, and centered.

Medical exercise specialist Carol Mitchell offers an innovative new workout that combines the science of yoga with the technology of the exercise ball. Executing yoga postures while using the exercise ball is true “meditation in motion.” It allows you to engage several muscle groups simultaneously while challenging your balance and spatial awareness in order to create a total-body workout. With only a slight roll of the ball, the deep yoga stretches can be altered to target different areas of the muscles, allowing each yoga posture to be as beneficial as possible.

Yoga on the Ball presents 67 postures--from introductory to advanced poses--detailed in step-by-step instructions and accompanied by more than 225 photographs. You can customize your practice, choosing between sculpting your muscles with toning and strengthening poses or relaxing your body and mind with stretching and breathing exercises. The author also offers three progressive yoga workouts for all levels of ability.
