Holosync: Meditation Made Easy!

The benefits of meditation on the mind and body have been known for thousands of years and have recently been validated in scientific studies. Unfortunately, many people find it difficult to meditate and give up without receiving these benefits. This problem has now been solved with the release of a powerful audio technology called Holosync that sends a very specific stimulus to the brain and creates states of deep meditation, quickly and easily.

Stimulating the brain with Holosync releases stress-reducing chemicals that are highly pleasurable. Most people go easily into a deep, trance-like meditative state normally only attained by experienced monks who have been meditating for over 20 years. In fact, EEG studies show the brain patterns experienced are actually deeper than those attained by monks.

As new neural pathways connect and synchronise the two sides of the brain, individuals develop what scientists call "whole brain functioning," which improves learning, intuition, mental clarity, creativity, concentration, and intelligence, as well as amazing quantum leaps in insight and self-awareness.

New research also reveals that even short-term exposure to Holosync creates significant increases in DHEA which is a precursor, or source ingredient, to virtually every hormone your body needs and is a buffer against stress-related hormones . It is a key determinant of physiological age. When DHEA levels are high, the body is at its peak - vibrant, healthy, and able to combat disease effectively.

Holosync also increases your ability to deal with stress and releases emotions such as anger, fear, sadness and anxiety. When Holosync is used regularly over time, many people discover that dysfunctional feelings and behaviours fall away - even those that have stubbornly resisted change in the past.

Pilates:Open your mind, transform your Body with Pilates Etc!

The Pilates Method is a total body-conditioning workout for both men and women lengthens and strengthens every body in your body and leaves you feeling refreshed and alert. It is an intense, ongoing challenge blending Eastern and Western philosophies of physical and mental conditioning. Pilates is an exercise program designed to condition and connect the body and mind, correct muscle imbalances, improve posture and tone the body.

Benefits of Pilates Etc Studio

There is nothing worse than doing exercise incorrectly, not only are you wasting your time as far as seeing the best results, but you are also potentially causing harm to your body - leaving you unable to enjoy life and also creating additional costs associated in the rehabilitation of the injury caused.
At Pilates Etc you will be exercising in groups under the watchful eye of our fully trained and qualified instructors. Ensuring that the time you spend exercising is only going to enhance your body and deliver the optimal results you are seeking.

One of the main reasons people fail to stick to a exercise program is boredom. That will never be an excuse at Pilates Etc - with 6 variety of Pilates matwork, 4 Pilates Reformer Class options, 2 types of Yoga, Tai Chi, mediation, and cardio style classes and with each of these classes changing format and offering new exercises every week - there won't be a chance to get bored.

Technique and skill acquisition
Pilates Etc understand that different people have different needs, goals and capabilities and as such offer the greatest range of levels in all formats of their exercise. For beginners there are technique classes and fundamental classes that they can master before moving into level one classes. Within each level, classes vary from week to week so that even staying at level one you see constant variety.

Because Pilates and Yoga are technique intensive it is important that these levels exist - something that gyms for example are unable to offer because they have merely added Pilates to their existing aerobics timetable . Which means they are getting beginners, intermediates, and new people all in the same class - never really covering the fundamentals for the beginners, but never really challenging those at the intermediate level because there are beginners - its not their fault its is just the nature of the beast . We dedicate ourselves to the quality and integrity of mind-body exercise.

Pilates Etc is offering Brisbane a variety of classes not available elsewhere. The concept of the studio is incredibly innovative- it brings the concept of mind-body exercise to life - offering the world of Pilates and yoga (not just sections) to participants. In the future Pilates Etc is also committed to bring new , innovative and effective classes to its members well before mainstream fitness is even aware of there existence.

Sylk:Improve your sex life, naturally, easily and inexpensively!

Sylk is unlike every other lubricant in that it is completely 100% natural as well as uniquely paraben-free. A quality in the Kiwi Fruit Vine Extract (not from the fruit but an ultra-slippery liquid from inside the vine itself) 'puts you instantly in the mood', increases sensitivity and enhances sexual pleasure.

The majority of personal lubricants are simply a concoction of cheap synthetic and/or petro- chemicals with water, sometimes with a little Vitamin E or a herbal extract added to claim "extra care" or "extra zing" although most herbal extracts are of little benefit unless consumed regularly over a period of time.

Unlike most lubricants, Sylk ingredients are clearly listed on the pack. Nearly all use Paraben preservative, either obscurely called 'preservative' or hidden under other names such as Hydroxy-benzoate or Methyl Paraben. But now the once hidden dangers of parabens are being illuminated with a number of recent articles published on the net. For example, search parabens breast tumours and be amazed!

Research endocrinologists have proven parabens to be mutagenic, estrogenic and bio-accumulative. They affect every body in some way and whilst the EU has had the paraben group listed on their Chemicals Under Scrutiny 'watchdog' program for several years, big business interests mean that they are unlikely to be deleted from cosmetics or personal care products in the near future.

Sylk uses a safe and gentle Grapefruit Seed Extract preservative that helps with yeast infections on men and in women as well as guarding against urinary tract infections. With no sugars, flavours or colours to avoid allergies. Being water soluble, it's ideal with condoms especially if you put a couple of drops inside the tip of the condom before you put it on!

Voted Best Lubricant by Australian Mens' Health Magazine, recommended by sex therapists and Doctors and sold worldwide for over 15 years, Sylk is available at larger pharmacies and health food outlets, larger Woolworths supermarkets and on-line.

Brahmi: Improving your memory!

The effects of Brahmi can be of benefit to anyone wishing to stimulate their powers of recall and concentration. Although Brahmi has shown to be helpful in treating ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), age-related mental deterioration and concentration difficulties due to stress, it may be incredibly beneficial where there is no health condition, but only the desire to improve cognitive function. An animal study in 1982 found that Brahmi improved the initial acquisition of learned information as well as retention ability. The study also showed that Brahmi delayed the length of time it took for the information to become extinct or 'unlearned'.

Brahmi is as eminently suited to a healthy, young student looking to maximise their ability to focus and study, as to an elderly person hoping to regain their memory. It enables people to optimise their intellectual potential and mental vitality for the betterment of both personal and professional pursuits.
