Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From "one of America's all-star trainers" (Vogue) and master yoga teachers comes a powerful and specific step-by-step program to sculpt your body. clear your mind, and free your spirit. In his popular book, Journey Into Power, internationally renowned yoga master Baron Baptiste shared the secrets of his famous seven-day, life-changing Bootcamps that have earned him a loyal following among celebrities, athletes, and others looking to overhaul their lives. Now he presents an accessible, personal, breakthrough program that will give readers the healthful, radiant lives that are completely within their grasp.

Designed for anyone who wants to be in better physical and mental shape, this unique step-by-step plan incorporates yoga practices, diet modifications, and guided meditations that build over forty days, which in spiritual and philosophical traditions around the world is a significant timeframe for radical transformation. Best of all, readers can tailor this program to their needs, whether that means settling into thirty minutes of yoga daily along with morning meditation and a caffeine-free diet or going all the way to a ninety-minute yoga practice, two deep sessions of meditation, and a total detoxification of the system. 40 Days to Personal Revolution is beautifully designed and presented in full-color throughout, including one hundred how-to photographs.

Review:

"Baron's 40-day plan offers a friendly and genuine springboard into personal revolution of body and mind, showing us how to build strength, motivation, and discipline one day at a time. He connects how we practice and what we eat with how we feel — whether we're working, socializing, meditating, or playing with the kids and dogs. Just take the plunge!" Beryl Bender Birch, author of Power Yoga

Review:

"The Bhagavad Gita tells us, in chapter six, that one of the best births, though difficult to attain, is to be reborn into a family of yogis. Baron has accomplished this difficult feat, and his reflections are worth listening to." Sharon Gannon, author of Jivamukti Yoga

Review:

"In 40 Days to Personal Revolution, Baron takes off into newfound freedom and inspiration. He shares his formulas with all of us so directly and selflessly. Let his book take you deep into the wisdom of yourself to liberate your true nature." Rodney Yee, author of Yoga: The Poetry of the Body

Synopsis:

Let the Revolution Begin Now

In 40 Days to Personal Revolution, Baron Baptiste — one of the world's most beloved master yoga teachers — inspires us to transform more than body and mind: He gives us the tools we need to set ourselves free to live the healthful life we've always imagined.

In the next 40 days you will create a whole new way of being and living. Tapping ancient wisdom and his own personal experience, Baron has created a relevant and completely practical program that will lead you to the clarity of mind, body, and spirit that awaits on the other side of your revolution.

Baron's Basic Laws of Transformation, based on timeless principles of growth, serve as the philosophical underpinning of the 40-day journey and demonstrate that radical change can come from making even the smallest shift. The program itself is divided into five weeks, with the seventh day of each devoted to active rest. Each week builds on the lessons of the one preceding it and includes:

• a yoga practice to do every day

• principles to cleanse your body, along with a specific eating plan

• instructions to begin and deepen a meditation practice

• excavation questions to root out limiting beliefs and patterns

Baron ends with a section on Daily Practices for Living an Enlightened Life, to help you maintain your new state of mind and health in every moment of your life. From here you will go beyond your revolution and discover your own personal purpose and way of living.
