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.

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!

I was looking for a yoga DVD to compliment my running and this is the best that I have found. It is a great, and easy to follow, workout.

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.

As someone who is training to be a runner and has suffered back and knee injuries in my in devour to remain fit into my 40's and beyond, I needed a trainer to help me with my moderate level of yoga training. My P90x Yoga with Tony Horton can be a bit intense at times. I first found Kimberly on a video by exercise TV. She was great and i purchased a downloadable session of Yoga for Runners which was very helpful in opening up my hips, hamstrings quads and lower back. Since i consider myself ,my own athlete, i thought i would gve this DVD a try. The video starts in a strong yoga pose and continues from there. I've always been under the impression to start slow with warm up moves to allow the body to heat up thereby allowing the muscle to become more flexible. This dvd doesn't do that, it jumps right in. I guess she assumes that u did a warm up before starting her DVD. If ur going to buy this DVD make sure u do a warm up before. Other than that she has a calming voice and takes u through the wrkout slow enough that its easy to follow.

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.

Though I admit the benefits of yoga are tremendous, I've always found it to be
a boring process and usually can't wait for a class to be over. I am definitely a novice
when it comes to yoga. I took this class in person a few times because it was recommended by my rowing coach. When I started the class, I was able to meet the strength demands easily, but I was, by far, the least flexible person in the room. After the first class, I felt amazing - as if I'd just had a massage and chiropractic spinal adjustment.

The instructor has a great voice and is very supportive and motivating. I wasn't
embarrassed to be inflexible (e.g. not able to touch the floor when bending forward) and
she explained why many athletes tend to be inflexible in various parts of the body (esp. hips and hamstrings). I bought the DVD and have been using it for a few months now. The workout seems to be very well-balanced. My flexibility has improved tremendously and my upper body, core strength and balance have increased as well. I'm now able to do most of the positions without feeling like a complete idiot (except standing splits - definitely a long
way from that one..). Frankly, I still find yoga a little boring - but this DVD is the best of those I've made myself work through - and the benefits can't be denied!

I just did this workout for the 1st time yesterday.

It is about 55 minutes long. The last 5 minutes is the resting pose or relaxation,savasanna.

The instruction is done live rather than voiceover. As one reviewer mentioned at the beginning of the class and for a little bit throughout there is sort of a greenish tint that is used but that didn't bother me too much. Fowler's voice is very calm and soothing. As promised on the cover there is no chanting or saying of the sanskrit names.

It starts out with standing poses after the short segment about the beginning on breathing. I remember warrior 1, 2, crescent lunge, and warrior 3. There are chatarungas and upward dogs in between. After these you have some balancing poses and then some restorative poses like pigeon and plow and shoulderstand. There are some harder poses like standing splits and dead bug and full wheel. Fowler does give modifications and points out students not doing the harder ones that stay in the original poses she calls out when introducing the moves.

The music is not distracting. I wish they had a chaper menu because with as well as the poses were organized it looked like they could have easily incorporated this.

Overall a good DVD that I will do again. I do think it is harder than her No Om shorter workouts.
