Written by yoga instructor Emily Sharratt and featuring incredible artwork from artist Jade Mosinski, alongside step-by-step instructions for each pose, this is an essential manual and celebration of yoga. As every yoga practitioner knows, many of the key asanas (or poses) and breath exercises are inspired by the animal kingdom. From camels to cobras, and from lizards to lions, so many animals have loaned their characteristics and shape as well as their name to the practice of yoga. Whether you're channelling the flamboyance of a peacock or the pride and power of an eagle, you are part of an old and beautiful tradition, and one that is practised all over the world. The format of the book follows the template of a full, well-rounded yoga session, incorporating stretching, strengthening, energizing and calming elements, while drawing on a number of different yoga styles, from vinyasa flows to more static Yin poses. Yoga Animals is a beautiful collection of poses based in the natural world, which will show you how to embrace this within each yoga session.

Welcome to The Death Zone. Fourteen mountains on Earth tower over 8,000 metres above sea level, an altitude where the brain and body withers and dies. Until recently, the world record for climbing them all stood at nearly eight years. So I announced I was summiting them in under seven months. People laughed. They told me I was crazy, even though I'd sharpened my climbing skills on the brutal Himalayan peaks of Everest and Dhaulagiri. But I possessed more than enough belief, strength and resilience to nail the job, having taken down enemy gunmen and terrorist bomb makers while serving with the Gurkhas and the UK Special Forces. Throughout 2019, I came alive in the death zone. Soon after, I was showing the world a new truth: that with bravery and enough heart and drive, the impossible was possible...

Don't let the title fool you. This isn't a book about high fiving everyone else in your life. You're already doing that. Cheering for your favourite teams. Celebrating your friends. Supporting the people you love as they go after what they want in life. Imagine if you gave that same love and encouragement to yourself. Or even better, you made it a daily habit. You'd be unstoppable. In this book, Mel teaches you how to start high fiving the most important person in your life, the one who is staring back at you in the mirror: YOURSELF. If you struggle with self-doubt (and who doesn't?) ... If you're tired of that nagging critic in your head (could somebody evict them already?)... If you're wildly successful but all you focus on is what's going wrong (you're not alone)... If you're sick of watching everybody else get ahead while you sit on the couch with your dog (don't bring your dog into this)... ...Mel dedicates this book to you. Using her signature science-backed wisdom, deeply personal stories, and the real-life results that The High 5 Habit is creating in people's lives around the world (and you'll meet a lot of them throughout this book), Mel will teach you how to make believing in yourself a habit so that you operate with the confidence that your goals and dreams demand. The High 5 Habit is a simple yet profound tool that changes your attitude, your mind-set, and your behaviour. So be prepared to laugh and learn as you take steps to immediately boost your confidence, happiness, and results. It's time to give yourself the high fives, celebration, and support you deserve.
