30-MINUTE AUDIO RECORDING

This is the proprietary Runner’s Yoga audio recording that is coordinated with all the instructional material. In the short sample below you'll hear the beat, breathing cues, and verbal directions that talk you though every movement of the 30-minute Runner's Yoga yoga routine.

Some of you might start doing your Runner's Yoga with this recording in the very first session, while others of you might prefer to gradually work up to it using the comprehensive instructional material. (See below.) Either way, you get everything you need to learn at your pace, and the recording is ready whenever, and wherever you're ready to do your yoga! (You can load the high-quality MP3 file into your player, phone, or laptop, or burn a CD with it.)

ILLUSTRATED MANUALS

The Illustrated Manuals show you every second of every move with clear explanations of every element. They coordinate perfectly with the audio recording and movie files and also provide a fascinating look at the research and science behind what you’re doing.

They are divided into 7 sections:

Module 1 – INTRODUCTION & DIRECTIONS

You’ll learn the “Why”, “How”, and “When” of the Runner’s Yoga Program and get detailed directions on how to move through the modules. Module 1 covers:

  • Preface
  • East and West
  • Where It Came From
  • Why 30 Minutes
  • Adding The Beat
  • Why Not A Video
  • Directions (Quick Start & Detailed)

Module 2 - THE BREATH

Easy-to-follow directions explain how to ramp up your breathing to a powerful new level. You’ll quickly learn the simple techniques that have been used in Asia for generations. And you’ll also find out what western science has learned about them. Module 2 covers:

  • Belly Breathing
  • Nasal Breathing
  • Core Breathing

Module 3 - MOUNTAIN SERIES A

Six separate poses (4 are repeated twice for a total of 10 movements) are linked together in this series of moves that start to warm up and gently stretch the whole body.

Known as sun salutes in yoga jargon, each Mountain Series A is shown with all of the Runner’s Yoga options and variations for different levels of fitness and flexibility. Used on their own they are a great total-body warmup. With the audio recording they flow with the beat and Core Breathing and prepare your body for everything that follows.

Module 4 - MOUNTAIN SERIES B

Three more poses are added to the six you've been moving through, building considerable more strength, intensity, and internal heat. There are easier versions for each pose, of course, but also some very advanced options for those who are ready for a challenge. Each Mountain Series B is repeated 3 times.

Module 5 - STANDING SEQUENCE

From Mountain Series B you move right into the 7 poses of the Standing Sequence. Most of them are done on both the right and left side, each pose flowing into the next. This sequence is particular good for balance (proprioceptor work), core strength, the hamstrings, hips (including hip flexors), and shoulders.

Module 6 - FLOOR SEQUENCE

Onto the floor we go for the next 7 poses. Stretching and strengthening the back, abdominals, ankles, knees, hips, groin, and deeper work for the shoulders.

Module 7 - CLOSING SEQUENCE

Deep stretching of the back of the body from head to toe, with balanced opening of the chest, shoulders and hips. We finish with some dynamic core work, then a short rest period.
