"What an amazing concept! As a triathlete I make a substantial time investment in swim, bike, run training. This DVD allows me to select the sport I want to focus on in the first menu selection, then the body part and amount of time from the second menu. With time as a precious commodity, I can follow a 40 mile ride with a 20 minute hip routine or on an "active rest" day do an hour with overall running as the key. Just for kicks, I've checked out what the teacher suggests football players do for a shoulder routine. It was a nice change of pace! This disk has well over 100 routine options. A true bargain when compared to a one routine video.Since adding yoga to my training program, this 50 year old guy will see many more tri-seasons! And this is what DVD is all about. Multiple configuations... we'll see more like this I'm sure!"
Good Yoga Work-Out

"The title enticed me into buying this DVD. I must have been on an ego trip to think that I was an "athlete."I hadn't taken yoga class in many, many years so I don't have the flexibility or the balance to do some of the yoga positions so I cheat. I would not recommend this to anyone who is not somewhat fit or active. The DVD's voice over instructions are very easy to follow, but she does get her lefts and rights mixed up. This can be confusing and annoying, but the mix-up is obvious. Overall, this DVD is cheaper and as good as paying for actual yoga lessons."

"I am a rock climber and was really excited to try this dvd. When I read others' reviews that said the dvd had "no flow", I figured it wouldn't really bother me (I love bikram yoga - and often the poses don't actually flow together). But this dvd is ridiculous. EVERY pose is literally seperated by a black screen and announcement, then most of the poses are done painfully slow. The poses are cut and pasted to fulfill the many, many options for work-outs, which really aren't that different (I've fast forwarded through a lot of them). It you have any yoga experience, this will drive you nuts! Also, there is absolutely no warm-up, and only some of the poses suggest a modified form. My friend who is an avid cyclist and also occasionally does yoga, agrees that this dvd is a huge disappointment."
Yoga Journal Editors Pick For Good Reason

"I run, bike and lift weights at a gym to try to stay in shape. I also play in softball and besketball leagues (nothing serious but a fun way to get some exercise.) Some running magazines recommened yoga, which I started to do some yoga a bit. Then I saw the Yoga Journal (which I started reading a few months back and also recommend) had made this DVD their editor's choice in the September issue. I figured they knew what they are talking about, so I picked it up. And I am really glad I did. It is perfect, and accomplishes what it says; it is has increased my flexibility and helped me with all of my pursuits. The set up is easy, and the ability to target different parts of your body for different sports is great. If you are looking to implement the benfits of yoga to help with your sports then you should pick this up, well worth the money."
