Author(s): John Douillard
In an era of increased body awareness, this book encourages lasting health and fitness through fun. Using many of Douillard's recommendations, children and adults can learn to maximize their physical abilities and enjoy recreational and competitive sports. The author integrates Yoga, Tao, Zen, diet, and various training programs as guides to greater enjoyment and success in sport. He focuses upon three mind-body types that reflect the governing principles of nature: Vata (space/air), Pitta (fire/water), and Kapha (water/earth). The premise is that each of us has primary characteristics in one of these psychophysiological mind-body types that influence how we think, eat, and sleep. This enjoyable book is recommended for health and fitness collections.
