The Unadorned Thread of Yoga
by Salvatore Zambito

The Yoga-Sutras of Patanjali is the central text, the core of practical theory and guiding instruction of all Yoga disciplines and traditions. It defines and delineates the technical, metapsychological, and meditative premises of the philosophical and practical fields of Yoga. The Yoga-Sutra is one of humanity’s most impressive treatises on consciousness and transcendent psychology. The first translations of the Indian philosophical treatises into European languages appeared in the mid-1800’s. Since then nearly forty English versions of The Yoga-Sutra of Patanjali have been produced. The Unadorned Thread of Yoga provides unique tools for English-speaking students to immerse themselves in The Yoga-Sutras of Patanjali, allowing then to make the path of yoga intimately their own.

NONVIOLENT COMMUNICATION
by Marshall Rosenberg, Ph.D.
published by Puddledancer Press

Nonviolent Communications (NVC) is a process that strengthens our ability to inspire compassion from others and respond compassionately to others and ourselves. NVC guides us to reframe how we express ourselves and how we hear others by focusing our consciousness on what we are observing, feeling, needing, and requesting. It is a language of empathy and honesty, and is sometimes described as “the language of the heart.”

Blink
by Malcolm Gladwell

Blink is about the first two seconds of looking--the decisive glance that knows in an instant. Gladwell, the best-selling author of The Tipping Point, campaigns for snap judgments and mind reading with a gift for translating research into splendid storytelling. Building his case with scenes from a marriage, heart attack triage, speed dating, choking on the golf course, selling cars, and military maneuvers, he persuades readers to think small and focus on the meaning of "thin slices" of behavior. The key is to rely on our "adaptive unconscious"--a 24/7 mental valet--that provides us with instant and sophisticated information to warn of danger, read a stranger, or react to a new idea. 

ANATOMY OF MOVEMENT
by Blandine Germain

Anatomy of Movement presents a dynamic, integrated approach to the study of the physical structures of the musculoskeletal system and their functional relationship to the movements of the human body. 

In clear and concise text illustrated with more than a thousand graphic drawings, the author guides the reader on a lively tour of the muscles, bones, ligaments and joints of the arms, legs and trunk. The focus throughout the book is on anatomy not for its own sake, but in its functional relationship to the actual movements of the body in dance, exercise and other physical disciplines.
