5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended by a friend, and met expectations April 5, 2007
I was interested in incorporating yoga into my training routine, and this program was recommended by a friend. It was exactly what I expected, and after three weeks of use, I can see that I am getting the desired results (greater flexibility, core strength, body control).

Some of the routine was difficult for me at first, and some parts of the routine remain challenging even as I have progressed. The jacket recommends watching the entire video at least once before participating, and I would say that is good advice - when you are working out, it allows you to concentrate on the verbal cues without constantly interrupting the movement/position to look at the tape.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Athlete's New Best Friend! February 19, 2008
This is an awesome yoga practice for all levels! While it doesn't take you through the advanced poses like headstands, arm balances, etc., the clever sequencing takes you through every pose that your body really needs - just none of the injury prone poses that help us show off! This practice will keep you safe while focusing on all the muscle groups the athlete particularly needs - basic stretching, hip openers, Warrior I-III, and plenty of pushups if you choose to accept that challenge:-) If not, you can always do them on your knees. Kimberly Fowler's voice and pacing are very nice, and her attitude is encouraging and non-judgemental. While she doesn't try to provide the spiritual guidance running rampant among yoga teachers, she does say that this is a natural bi-product of a yoga practice in her website Q&A. Personally, I like that she is cool with letting each of us experience our own personal spiritual journey and focuses on guiding us through a very efficient and focused practice. I use this DVD regularly and can't wait for the next one! I liked it so much that I also purchased the IPOD download version!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yoga without the attitude October 13, 2006
I've been hearing about this program for some time but was never into the idea of yoga. Everyone kept telling me, you've got to get this DVD because it will change your life. I have to say that it has. I am an athlete and since I started using the Yoga for Athletes DVD I have not been injured, I'm better at my sports and feel amazing. You have to try it. It will raise your performance to another level.

4.0 out of 5 stars I laugh a little about this one May 14, 2014
By TW

I had it in my mind that I was going to do this workout and suddenly become 20 years younger.
First of all, the instruction is good. I consider myself a complete beginner in the world of yoga, but I was a competitive athlete for over 20 years, just not yoga or aerobics.
After hearing friends, my wife, my wife's friends talk about not liking yoga because it's too slow, I thought it would be perfect for me. My goal wasn't really to feel 20 years younger. It was to limber up my body so I could start working out full-time again, including jogging.
This was my experience the first time I tried this DVD, by the fourth movement, I was saying, "I should have watched this before trying it". There's nothing overly slow about this workout. I would even say it's more of a mid-paced workout.
It does help though. I was very happy to see the movement on the floor that causes your back to pop. I couldn't remember how to do that.
After a few weeks of trying to keep up, I decided to take the movements that helped me most and just do those. In that sense, this is a very good instructional video. I picked up some knowledge I can do without watching the video.
I rated it a 4 simply because I don't know how realistic the DVD is. I can actually stretch and bend further than my wife, but there were a few moves on here that I couldn't do. Other than that, it helps me to do it twice a week to stay limber. I would still recommend it for athletes and former athletes. It gives a good stretch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good workout July 21, 2013
Verified Purchase
The workout itself is is pretty good, and it's a nice flow. I finish feeling like I got a good yoga workout. I don't know why the marketing, music (lack there of) and philosophy on the box is so "anti traditional meditative yoga" because it's very similar to most yoga classes I go to as far as the sequences and poses. Anyway I enjoy doing it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Yoga DVD on Market!! October 10, 2006
This is the perfect Yoga DVD for anyone who is athletic and wants to increase their strength and flexiblity. Kimberly Fowler instructs in a no-nonsense, intense way that is very informative for the average person.

I feel energized every time I finish the video and my flexibility has increased immensely.
