The Shaolin Workout Booksigning at Barnes and Noble

The Shaolin Workout: 28 Days to Transforming Your Body and Soul the Warrior's WayShifu Shi Yan Ming will be exhibiting his book THE SHAOLIN WORKOUT: 28 Days to Transforming Your Body and Soul the Warrior’s Way by RODALE BOOKS, at Barnes and Nobles, Astor Place on May 24th 7pm.

Shifu Shi Yan Ming teaches the secrets of the 1,500-year-old Shaolin kung fu tradition to students from all over the globe. Now the world-renowned master of the martial arts presents his 4-week program for total mind, body, and spirit transformation.

In his loft in New York City’s Greenwich Village, Shifu Shi Yan Ming trains men and women of all ages, body types, and backgrounds in the fundamentals of kung fu. A 34th-generation Shaolin Warrior monk from China’s Shaolin Temple—the birthplace of Chan Buddhism and the mecca of all martial arts—Yan Ming teaches the students at his USA Shaolin Temple that there is no better workout program than his brand of kung fu for getting the body and mind into warrior condition.

Lavishly illustrated with hundreds of four-color photographs, the warrior workout distills a lifetime of Shaolin training and wisdom into a 28-day workout. This complete-unto-itself program of both fitness and spiritual lessons can be applied to every aspect of one’s life: work, relationships, and family.

Kung fu gives a superb aerobic workout at the same time that it dramatically increases flexibility, power, and speed. The ultimate promise of the book is this: readers who stick to the plan for 28 days—for as little as 15 minutes a day—will be transformed inside and out. And the enormous sense of accomplishment that results will radiate through their life, allowing them to tackle the world with a warrior’s confidence, calm, and poise.
