"The Complete 30-Minute Home Practice Yoga Program for Runners (and other athletes!)"*

WARNING: This is NOT another follow-along yoga video.(Read why below.)
It is a complete multi-media Instructional Program that teaches you how to safely do the 30-minute routine on your own - when it best fits YOUR schedule - using the revolutionary audio recording.
My name is Van Clayton Powel and I’ve taught yoga to thousands of people. From Olympic Champions and Coaches, to grandparents with back problems. And over the years I noticed something:
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.
So even though yoga will do some amazing things for you:
... you probably won't do it.
So what's the solution? That's what I wondered. And it's a quest that took me around the world.
My studies took me from Martial Arts studios in Japan, to Masters of ancient techniques in India. From the frontline trenches of the Western medical system, to studies with some of the world’s finest yoga instructors.
Until finally (after 30 years!) I knew I had it - One Short Routine that:
A program so effective, so 'user-friendly' you can (and according to research,
Instead, it is a COMPLETE INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM in digital format that
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
In 30 minutes you’ll balance, stretch, and strengthen your whole body!
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 $money$ (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.
FIRST, it’s because of the incredible forces they’re subjected to.
The body of a 130 lb runner, for example, has to absorb over 600,000 lbs of impact every mile!
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.
The SECOND reason is the intense “Type-A” approach that many runners are notorious for.
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! (Two 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!
The problem is, Most Runners (and the rest of us!)
don’t have enough time to get to classes regularly.
I mean, add it up - How long does it actually take you to go do that workout or yoga class? Including travel, parking, changing, etc.
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
So when I first developed my 30-minute program (I’ll tell you why 30 minutes is so important in a moment), I knew it would be perfect for runners. And I started teaching it to them in special “Runner’s Yoga Workshops”. (Which is how it came to be called 'Runner’s Yoga'.)
The result? Runners loved it! (And so did their physiotherapists!)
Then something interesting happenned. PEOPLE WHO AREN'T RUNNERS (even people who hate running), discovered that everything my Runner’s Yoga Program does for runners’ bodies … it will do for you!
Busy Moms … People with Injuries … Snowboarders …Business Executives … Martial Artists … Mountain Bike Riders - they all found the Runner’s Yoga Program to be so effective. So practical. That they started making it a part of their lives.
And why not? One short routine that will help you stay fit and healthy, physically and mentally, for the rest of your life. A routine that is safe enough for beginners. Yet full of challenging options for the fittest athlete.
And now, for the very first time, you can have the exact same program I teach in workshops (plus some great bonuses!) in a format that will allow you to get started minutes from now -even if you’re halfway around the world and it’s 2 o’clock in the morning!
So why 30 minutes?
Years ago I came across a study that looked at people who lost fifty pounds or more. And most importantly, kept it off for more than five years. A pretty incredible feat, since most people who lose that amount soon gain back even more.
Naturally, the researchers wanted to know what these people had done differently. And one of the things they found was that each of the successful participants had found an exercise routine they could do in about 30 minutes. All-inclusive. From start to finish.
As a result, each one of them practiced their short exercise routine regularly - in some cases daily – year after year after year. No 'Yo-Yo dieting'. No Yo-Yo fitness! They got long-term benefits ... the healthiest approach.
I realized this was a key aspect to what I was trying to create. And since I’d already designed a number of my own yoga programs, I took them out and started to experiment, this time with the 30-minute principle in mind. I wanted to see if I could combine the best aspects of each program into a single 30-minute routine.
It took years of testing to make sure:
Until finally I had the routine I was after! Almost.
I wanted to add one more thing. The Beat.
You see, years ago I came across research that shows we enjoy some very unique benefits when we listen to the rhythm of 60 beats per minute (BPM):
It was clear to me that the whole Runner’s Yoga routine should flow to that special meditative rhythm of 60 BPM.
So I recorded every breath, every movement, to that rhythmic beat, automatically putting your mind and body into a calm, focused state as you flow through the poses.
Synchronizing the routine this way also allowed me to ensure that each Dynamic Stretch is held for at least 30 seconds. Why? Because studies show this is optimal for INCREASING YOUR RANGE OF MOTION. And any professional athlete will tell you how important that is!
Quite simply, because I don’t think it’s a good idea to do yoga to a video. Here’s why:
So despite some tempting offers, I passed on producing a video.
Instead, I went to work writing VERBAL DIRECTIONS.
Then finally, I put together THE INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIAL, recreating exactly how I teach the Runner’s Yoga Program in workshops and private sessions. Giving you:
Everything provided in digital format.
