Home - Runners Yoga
Are you ready to RUN CALMER, SMOOTHER, IN THE ‘ZONE’, and INJURY FREE? Would you like to be more flexible and have great muscle definition head-to-toe … all from One 30-Minute Routine you can do almost anywhere?
WARNING: This is NOT another follow-along yoga video! It is a comprehensive Instructional & 30-Minute-Home-Practice Program.
My name is Van Clayton Powel and I’ve taught yoga to thousands of people. From Olympic athletes and coaches to champion snowboarders and grandparents with back problems. And over the years I noticed two things:
First, as great as you’ll feel when you practice yoga (Provided you’re taught properly!), most people stop practicing for one simple reason – they just don’t have enough time in their busy schedule.
And second, runners seem to benefit from yoga more than almost anyone. (Again, as long as you’re taught properly.)
From Martial Arts studios in Japan, to Masters of ancient techniques in India. From the front-line trenches of the Western medical system, to studies with some of the world’s finest yoga instructors.
A program so effective, so ‘user-friendly’ you can, and according to research, probably will make it a regular part of your fitness program.
(*In fact, I don’t think it’s a good idea to do yoga to a video, and you’ll learn why in a few moments.)
Instead, it is a COMPLETE INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM in digital format that you can download minutes from now:
And then, whenever and wherever you want, all you’ll have to do is follow along as the Proprietary Audio Recording guides you through every second of every move with:
*You’ll quickly learn CORE BREATHING in module #2. It has been used by Martial Artists and Monks in Asia for generations and research recently confirmed its ability to dramatically improve lung function and automatically turn off the body’s stress response at the same time! (One of the reasons it is now being used by Olympic Champions and World-Class Athletes.)
And you’ll calm and focus your mind at the same time … finishing clear, refreshed, and ready to perform at your highest level.
You’ll even save $$ (and time!) as your aches, pains and injuries disappear, allowing you to cut down on appointments with doctors, physiotherapists, and chiropractors.
Well, one of the things I noticed over my many years of teaching yoga is how frequently my running students are injured. According to the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, almost 70% of runners will be injured. And in my experience, there are two main reasons.
And it’s not just the lower body of the runner that’s affected. That jarring, tightening impact reverberates through the whole body, causing imbalances and tightness head-to-toe and leading a host of common injuries in runners.
This stressful, I’M-NOT-WORKING-HARD-ENOUGH approach tends to disconnect runners from the messages from their bodies – a leading cause of over-training and injury. In some cases this disconnect is so pronounced that runners will actually run themselves into fatal heart attacks!
It was easy for me to recognize these two primary causes of injuries in runners … because I experienced them myself! (Three knee operations, hamstring pop, multiple calf muscle tears, Achilles’ Tendon strains, etc, etc.)
Which meant it was also easy for me with my background to recognize that yoga is the most powerful solution. For both problems – physical and mental.
Not only does yoga give you a balanced, flexible body that performs better (see ‘Range of Motion’ below) and is much less prone to injury. But doing yoga has a profound effect on your MENTAL ATTITUDE as well. And any athlete (or therapist!) will tell you how important that is!
About the only people I know who can find that much time … day after day, month after month, year after year … are competitive athletes and the independently wealthy!
Which is why the majority of us stop going to the health club or gym two months after joining! (According to the industry’s own statistics.)
