1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of Money, March 9, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Please save your money, this product does not work and the company the Natural Health Shoppe is selling diet pills that don't work which they will not refund. Any company selling diet pills that don't work, and won't offer a refund, should be questioned. This company is abusive and this product is just over-priced caffeine. If you want the jitters and nausea all day long this product will give you that, but don't expect to lose weight!

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't judge a book by the cover!, June 11, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The item does not look at all like what is pictured on the package advert. The lovely color scheme and fit on the picture is not at all what the real item looks like. The color scheme looks more like chiquita banana threw up than disco diva! It is very bad print and poor quality. But it is cheap! I was going to a disco them party and I decided upon first opening the package that this was unusable and had to get something else last minute because when this came it came looking like crayola disco. Because time had run out after I ordered this and had t return it last minute because it was not as pictured I ended up going to Party City and for the same money I did much better for a cheap costume! I didn't want to spend alot of money, but I didn't want to look gross either...

I returned this item and the company was very picky about the return and almost did not return the item. I only had the item one day and only tried it on once when I contacted them for the return code and was given all kinds of warnings about they cannot return without this and that when I already told them I had everything needed for the return and it was well within the time frame. Then when they got the item they said it was "covered" with hair or something, after I only tried it on once and I have no pets so I am not sure what they were talking about at all. It was very reluctant return process and they were not at all nice about it either. I will not order from them again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Health-wise, June 11, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book is a very good basic primer on why to fast, but there is no diet outlined at all, just why eating light is better than eating heavy is the main message and its a great message! For a more detailed approach I have Paul Bragg's Miracle of Fasting. THis book is very basic and straight forward, if a bit over-simplistic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better Than Chocolate, April 8, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is better than expected... I have several of Ana & Ravi's earlier DVD's and I love them, but this DVD takes it another step in the direction of super hip, super modern, and ultra sleek yoga at home where you don't pay for have to pricey classes and you can sweat in the privacy of your own home, all while saving on driving time, gas, and parking!

I love the new sets with zen water views, the music is very next gen "anime" suave but it works, and the matrix where you design your own workout is completely the best thing ever. There are posture and breathing tutorials. Ana & Ravi's have both got their sounds and images launched in the new milennia. For a second I admit, I did find myself wondering what happened to Ana's gorgeous raven tresses and was worried she turned into yoga barbie, but I also couldn't help thinking at the same time that she looks amazing! And I want to be her! She looks sleeker than ever, if a tad skinny, and very in her yoga warrior element. Very Inspiring and breathtaking! Get this DVD! If you don't have time to get to those cramped, smelly, overpriced, lackluster classes at your local gym, this takes the cake and its the icing too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Bikram, April 7, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Barkan Method: Hot Yoga (DVD)
This DVD is everything and more than I expected. I had gone to "Hot Yoga" classes in the Denver Area and found them to be quite militant and unfriendly to newcomers -especially since I expressed that I had tennis elbow and might need to modify some things for my arm. This was met with an attitude that clearly communicated that I might as well not do the class if I had to modify anything! Also, during the class we were told repeatedly not to move to even scratch an itch on our noses or heads or fix out ponytails etc and the instructors were constantly overwhelming everyone new with too many rules to even take in 90 minutes! I thought I was dealing with the Yoga Military Police! They were polite but, very strict.

In any case, I found the Bikram's instructors in the actual classes in Denver to be very stand-offish, superior, and artificial. Also, their perfect bodies and their underwear-like yoga outfits were way over the top for me. I am not interested in survival yoga or the yoga olympics! I just wanted a good anti-aging, and destressing stretch after a hard day at work!

Conversely, I found Barkan's DVD to be gentle, not a yoga-competition, and it offers multiple chances for modification for beginners. This is perfect and saves a ton of money, since I don't have to pay for those over-priced classes or parking or gas to get there! Its the perfect at home solution. And if you need to take a break or scratch your nose no one is going to give you the evil eye or the raised eyebrow! Barkan has a very soothing and comforting manner throughout the DVD and is wonderful to listen to as well. Great DVD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Twilight Explained! Great Read!, April 3, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I got this item because I read Twilight and I wanted a scholar's take on vampirism and death ritual and afterlife - it is that and more! He does claim that humans were not cognizant of death before we acquired language/speech. I simply don't buy that and I think other animals may be aware of death and dying too - which is a big deal in our limited sicence right now! I have seen dogs, cows, cats, and birds, etc hover over a dying member waiting and watching and "knowing" that the outcome will be loss, you can tell by their anxious wimpers and cries...they know about death and are aware of it on some level just like we are, like all sentient beings are. Animals also exhibit the full range of emotions that Taylor mentions are so crucial to the experience of death that we also humans express. Its instinctual to know about mortality so I just think its bunk that our science has long used this "concept" to differentiate us from other animals. Bah! Animals dream and even have REM sleep too! Dreaming is the aspect of being that belies intent and awareness...

"Awareness" is not something we take into account well since Rationalism/and Cartesian Dualism of the 1800's took over. Its our blind side now, especially in science. See the Toltecs for more on awareness and the Serpent Rainbow of the Mayans, Aboriginals, etc, etc, etc...This is the real secret! Anyway, sorry for the tangent, this is a great read. But don't read it too late at night when you are all alone in the house!

"If there is in this world a well-attested account, it is that of vampires. Nothing is lacking: official reports, affidavits of ... And with all of that, who is there who believes in vampires?" - Rousseau

I suspect we have long limited our consciousness through rigmorale and denial of ourselves and our true nature and fear of feminine intuition, burned at the state. But its time to wake up. The polar ice can't take anymore of our ignorance and denail. See Nova's Extreme Ice, and Join the ZEITGEIST MOVEMENT!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Kept Secrets!, November 24, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is fantastic and it covers everything from Taoism, Shabda Yoga, Vedic practices and more. I can't believe more people don't know about this stuff, keeping it shrouded in mystery and secrecy. I hope more will uncover these great ancient beauty and spiritual secrets! Its sure to be a hit among models and celebs or just anyone who don't wants to avoid aging badly and also those who want to find out about ascendent levels of being - pretty much all of us! Learn to access Christ Consciousnes, Krishna Consciousness and more and learn about chi, prana, manna, and all of the various names from Sanskrit to the Bible, ALL ROADS LEAD TO OM. MUST READ!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fat Free Yoga Better than Expected!, November 4, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a wonderful DVD and my first Yoga VD with Ravi & Ana. I learned more than I ever thought I would. I started looking in to Kundalini Science and have learned that this amazing form of Yoga is centuries old and truly a "technology" that affects change in your pituitary gland, your pineal gland, and all the organs of the body as well as the chakra system - which I never even knew about and just thought was silly nonsense -how wrong I now know I was! It turns out to be an amazing science. This DVD is easy to follow, has great motivating music and soft instructions that does not overwhelm you as you go through the exercises. I love the "LIFE NERVE" work and can feel that working with the "Breath of Fire." I prefer a woman's voice for the instructions though since its such a women's thing-weightloss, but this is still very nice with mans voice. Fantastic! I just want to learn more now...

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing New Under the Sun...., October 26, 2008
In college over 15 years ago now I took a course on comparative religions that outlined many aspects of the similarities between various dieties around the globe and talked about the Virgin Birth Cults and the Resurrection cults that existed hundreds of years before Jesus was said to exist. I have also covered Joseph Campbell's take on global myth and meaning as well. What this author is saying has been known by scholars and historians for a long time and its nothing new! I like it, and I think debunking myth is important to spiritual awakening so this is very Zeitgeist too! But we have to be very careful now not to throw the baby out with the bath water either. Hold on to your rosary, mala. etc ...

The Zeitgeist movie and this book too are pointing out sme truths that need to be exposed now. BUT just because Jesus is related to Krishna, and Horus, and so on does not mean that "the story" was not from an original source or that there is no spiritual truth to aspects of the story. There is Christ Consciousness, or Krishna Consciousness - it does not make either of them a lie to say they are just the same thing...call it chi, prana, ki, or di (druids) its all about SOURCE ENERGY.

I reiterate that think The Christ Conspiracy is very good, but we need to be careful not to throw the baby out with the bath water. This is nothing new. We have known for a long time that pagan ceremonies and other things were tacked onto to the bible story and other things as well were "stolen" or "borrowed" by the Christian sect. THe oldest reigion in the world is VEDISM (VEDIC) see the Upanishads, which preached compassion - love as the answer, and strains of this run throughout every major religion on all the continents. These stories and teachings were of course, no question, re-languaged, re-worded, and borrowed, and manipulated for social control of course - but the underlying truth of some aspects of the spiritual teachings are no lie. The truth is with in what resonates with you at your conscious level (Tolle). You are the truth, sat nam - this comes from Sansckrit. I am not religious, but spiritual and believe that these teachings from the parables of Jesus to Horus to Kwan Yin, these are trying to point to the sacred. So maybe we have been worshipping HORUS all this time in the name of Jesus, but at least it gets us thinking about our higher selves, the alpa and the omega - there are truths embedded in the lie and the mythology. The Christians do a great diservice to us all in forcing their interpretation on it, their perspective, its not complete - its only one part of the story - how they see - like all perspectives it is limited to its approach. But there is truth at the core, there is TRUTH in a spiritual sense and you can access it anytime - you don't need a book, a professor, or a guru, its in your DNA. Follow Your Bliss - SATCHITANANDA OM SHANTI OM.
