Jillian Michaels Dishes on "Losing It With Jillian" and Her New Yoga DVD

http://www.thatsfit.com

That's Fit's number one hottest TV trainer and co-host of Biggest Loser Jillian Michaels has an exciting few months ahead of her. Besides the release of her new yoga DVD, "Jillian Michaels: Yoga Meltdown," available today (March 2), the Biggest Loser coach is also ramping up to begin shooting her newest NBC reality show. "Losing It With Jillian." The reality show will be taped in between BL Season 9 and Season 10. Phew! We're tired even thinking about it all. Before filming the last episode of Biggest Loser Season 9, Michaels took a few minutes to speak with That's Fit about her new DVD and reality show. With a background in martial arts, Michaels wanted to keep a focus on weight training when creating a new workout for "30 Day Shred" and "No More Trouble Zones" devotees. "I find [body weight training] is the most effective way to get lean quickly, bottom line," she said. "It's also cost-effective -- you don't need any equipment -- and you can do it anywhere. I've also found that body weight training for getting ripped quick is where it's at." However, she says weights aren't necessarily the most functional, since they can make you bulky and you're more prone to injury.

Jillian Michaels Yoga Meltdown Can Transform Your Body

http://www.americanhealthandbeauty.com

"The Biggest Loser " trainer Jillian Michaels sits in with "The Doctors" with tips for a healthier, and happier lifestyle. We all know her from The Biggest Loser, fitness expert and trainer Jillian Michaels visits the set of The Doctors today to talk about exercise, health, and her new workout DVD, Yoga Meltdown. Yoga is considered by many to be less about developing strength and more about increasing flexibility and balance. In Jillian's new video, she combines the traditional power poses of yoga with circuit training to create a workout that combines both flexibility and power. Jillian also talks with the docs about hangover cures and foods to help relieve PMS. Hangovers are due to alcohol's toxic effect on the body, one of the largest and most significant of those being dehydration. Doctors cast member Dr. Travis Stork suggests balancing out your alcohol consumption with water by drinking a glass of water with every alcoholic beverage. Another key hangover component is acetaldehyde which is a toxin formed in the liver as the body tries to process the alcohol.

Hot Yoga (similar to Bikram Yoga)

http://www.kktv.com

What is it? Yoga in a REALLY hot room. Equipment needed: A yoga mat, towel and REALLY big bottle of water. Where: A variety of yoga studios offer this kind of class. We went to CorePower Yoga on Garden of the Gods. Benefits: Yoga increases flexibility and strength. The heat is said to help with circulation and getting rid of toxins. Lora Lantz, area manager with CorePower Yoga says, “It also helps increase circulation to tissues and organs, enhances the functioning of the immune system and provides great healing influence to the entire body.” Let me begin by saying… I am no yogi. I have taken two yoga classes in my life, so I am not an expert. But when my producer Tara (who loves yoga) told me about hot yoga, I was intrigued. “It’s done in a room that’s 105-degrees,” she said. “You sweat buckets and buckets.” Hmmm… alright. She agreed to take me with her, so I thought I’d give it a try.(TIP: CorePower allows you to borrow mats, which was helpful for a novice like me. The first time you come, borrowing is free. But after that, it’s $2.) Once I had my mat, I was ready to go.

Yoga and Exercise for a Wonderful Busy Week and...yes, MORE Snow

http://special.equisearch.com

Wow, two weeks in a row I have been super busy! But this past week has been all about my family and friends and for a change work was not a major part of my week. In fact this week work really got in the way. Ever notice how things come in waves? Sometimes there is not much social activity and suddenly, you have a couple of events in a week, it's either feast or famine! But this past week was fun, it was good busy. And there has been more snow. Yes, just when we thought that perhaps the snow would melt, we had more snow on Thursday and Friday (with our office closed again.) Between my busy schedule and the snow, riding Nitro had to be put on hold until this coming Tuesday. All of this activity meant that it was tough week to get to the gym, but I still did my cardio,yoga and Pilate's at home. For these busy days I use exercise DVDs, specifically ones for yoga and Pilate's. I discovered these DVDs by accident when I won a Rodney Yee Power Yoga one at the gym. Exercise DVD's never appealed to me and I was skeptical, but after using the Power Yoga one I was convinced and they are now my yoga back-up. The two other yoga DVD's were gifts and I LOVE the AM/PM DVD.

Tantra: It’s not what you think

http://www.newsreview.com

From sex to celibacy to mind tricks, there’s more to tantra than meets the third eye.What do you think of when you hear the word “tantra?” Sex, most likely. Orgies, perhaps. Hours of multiple orgasms. Then, of course, there’s Sting. The rocker is known for, among other things, his practice of tantric sex. He told England’s The Guardian in 2003 that tantra is about “a journey,” not “fucking for eight hours.” And yet, becoming a better lover and experiencing better sex tends to be a far bigger incentive for most Western bodies to practice tantra than how Sting described it in the same interview: “It’s about reconnecting with the world of the spirit through everyday things.” Take Destin Gerek, “The Erotic Rock Star,” for example. On eroticrockstar.com, viewers see the sexologist’s bedroom eyes, his long hair, his rock hard body using a sex toy as a microphone. They can watch seven different intro videos titled “Orgasmic Mastery,” with subject matter like “ejaculatory choice” and “male multiple orgasm.” He was even at the Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas recently promoting his services.

A year of living Oprah is no life at all

http://www.theglobeandmail.com

What’s it like to follow the lifestyle guru – to the letter? Expensive and confusing, says the author of Living Oprah. Robyn Okrant has a complicated relationship with the most powerful woman in the world. She says she isn’t an Oprah hater or a superfan – she’s simply intrigued by the mogul’s influence on American women. In 2008, Ms. Okrant abided by all the advice the icon doled out on her show, in her magazine and on her website. Along the way, she spent $4,781.84 – plus 1,202 hours and 1 minute – as she followed the lifestyle guru’s instructions including taking a 21-day vegan cleanse, buying a crisp white Brooks Brothers shirt and seeing Céline Dion in concert. The Chicago yoga instructor recently published a book about the experience called Living Oprah. By the end of the year, she told The Globe and Mail in a phone interview, she was unable to distinguish her own point of view from Oprah’s and felt unclear on whether she really was living her “best life.” You mention many times in the book that you were on a tight budget. How did you deal with all of the things that you needed to buy for this project?
