Best Bush and Beach Walks of the Gold Coast: The full-colour guide to 33 fantastic walks, Alan Ernst
1 Best Bush and Beach Walks of the Gold Coast: The full-colour guide to 33 fantastic walks
Alan Ernst Australia Woodslane Press 2015 1921683295 / 9781921683299 Soft cover New Book 22.0 x 13.0 x 1.4 cm 
In Best Beach and Hinterland Walks of the Gold Coast, author Alan Ernst combines his local knowledge with his passion for bushwalking. In his choice of the best walks, he includes not only the popular walks in the main tourist areas, but also many quieter tracks that few know exist. Each walk includes a detailed description, trek rating, full-colour map and full-colour photos. The book includes a range of walks from 30-minute strolls to 6-hour full-day walks, and is full of suggestions for walkers of differing experience. The 33 walks reveal a side to the Gold Coast that few tourists get to know: Rainforests resonating to the sound of whipbirds, waterfalls and quiet creeks, not to mention long stretches of deserted coastline. About the Author: Alan Ernst developed a passion for bushwalking in his youth and has continued exploring and walking bush, beach and city tracks wherever he travels. He has lived most of his life in Queensland and has been visiting the Gold Coast periodically and for holidays for over 60 years.

Meagan McCrary USA New World Library 2014 1608681807 / 9781608681808 Soft cover New Book 
On the surface it may appear that yoga is yoga is yoga, but take a closer look and you'll discover myriad different yoga systems and lineages. There are dozens of yoga styles to choose from, and while yoga is for everyone, not every style is the perfect fit for every person. But how do you choose between mysterious-sounding names such as Ashtanga, Kundalini, Bikram, and Kripalu? As Meagan McCrary discovered when she began exploring different classes, finding the right style is essential for establishing a steady yoga practice. Pick Your Yoga Practice is the first book to describe the most prominent yoga styles in depth, including teaching methodology, elements of practice, philosophical and spiritual underpinnings, class structure, physical exertion, and personal attention. Those new to yoga will discover they have options and can confidently attend a class of their choosing, while experienced practitioners will expand their understanding of the vast world of modern yoga, and perhaps find themselves venturing into new territory. Styles included: Ashtanga * Iyengar * Kundalini * Integral * Kripalu Bikram * Jivamukti * Sivananda * Ananda Viniyoga * Svaroopa * Power * Forrest * ISHTA Anusara * Moksha * AcroYoga
