CONCENTRATION: A GUIDE TO MENTAL MASTERY
An accessible guide to controlling the mind.
This book has been written to bridge the gap between the many existing theoretical works on mental concentration and meditation, and the general application of the mind’s powers to everyday life. Written in a simple and easily understandable style, Concentration is a classic among books on the art of meditation.
Without the ability to concentrate, our efforts at meditation will result only in going nowhere, in spinning our wheels in an unending rut. Through a series of practical steps, Mouni Sadhu provides the framework of achieving the state of Samadhi. It encourages readers to actively walk the path of spirituality and achieve a state of super consciousness, rather than just passively read about it.

MALLEA – TIME FOR A YOGA KIT UPGRADE
In an industry that’s one of the worst for pollution, BAM is on a mission to show how a clothing company can be truly responsible, being the kindest possible to people, nature and the planet.
BAM focuses on nature-based fibres. Why? Because bamboo, for example, absorbs five times more carbon than hardwood trees, needs half the land cotton needs to produce the same amount of fibre, doesn’t need irrigation or pesticides and can be transformed into an unbelievably soft, flexible, high-performance fabric.
Mallea is BAM’s new game-changing fabric: a sustainable bamboo modal. A finer yarn and a breathable, lighter weight, it is also supportive and buttery soft, moving with the body and draping beautifully. Best of all, with just 10% elastane, Mallea proves there’s no place for plastic on the yoga mat.
Mallea is available in a wide range of colourful kit including leggings, shorts, a crop top and longline vests. It’s the ultimate yoga kit upgrade.
