The fact that basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, a serious yogi, played professionally for two decades without once suffering the kind of shoulder, knee, hamstring, or other injuries that hamper so many other athletes' careers is no coincidence. Instructor Rodney Yee is therefore clearly on to something with Yoga Conditioning for Athletes, a yoga practice designed to promote overall balance, diminish the likelihood of injury, and enhance athletes' physical conditioning and "focused concentration." With two assistants demonstrating modifications for the various poses, Yee leads the user through a three-part, hour-long program. The first section, "Opening," requires the use of a folding chair and includes several bends and twists for the spine, hips, and hamstrings. "Conditioning," the second and most vigorous section, alternates basic standing asanas (triangle, warrior I and II, extended right angle) with balancing poses (tree, eagle) and several sustained forward bends; "Integration," the third section, combines seated and reclining backbends, lunges, twists, and hip work. All in all, this is a solid, reasonably complete (but not overly taxing) program that should deliver what it promises. That said, it's also true that almost any yoga workout is a good thing for an athlete. --Kelly Welldon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I like this tape for opening up hips and stretching. You can feel the pain in days after of good run. Read morePublished on March 17 2003 by Tam
I have a number of other yoga tapes that I use and thought that this would be a good one since I am a runner and triathlete. Read morePublished on Feb. 9 2003 by "imdoctormindy"

This is the yoga tape I use the most. It is one of the few targeted yoga tapes that succeeds. It stresses stretching the back, hips and thighs and I often use it to stretch out... Read morePublished on Aug. 8 2002 by S. E. Nelson
We really enjoyed this tape but it is NOT for beginners. It moves quickly and assumes you already know the positions. Read morePublished on May 14 2002 by "dewittc"
This is my absolute number #1 favorite yoga video I own. Great for beginners or not so beginner and for athlete or non-athlete. Read morePublished on April 4 2002 by Susan M. Bell
This video was exactly what I was looking for. I am a long distance runner who hates stretching, and my flexibility (or lack thereof!) attests to this. Read morePublished on Feb. 23 2002 by "swimmrguy"
