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!), you’ll probably stop practicing for one simple reason – you just don’t have enough time in your busy schedule.
So even though yoga will do some amazing things for you:
||Heal old injuries.|
||Improve your range of motion, focus and athletic performance.|
||Make you calmer, stronger, and more confident.|
Help you dramatically cut down on visits to the chiropractor, physiotherapist, or massage therapist …
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.
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.
Until finally (after 30 years!) I knew I had it – One Short Routine that:
|Will easily fit into your busiest schedule.|
|Is practical enough for you to do almost anywhere.
(No video monitor, no special equipment, no studio or gym required.)
|Works your whole body head-to-toe.
(Flexibility, strength, balance and Core work … all at the same time!)
|Literally melts away stress and calms your mind.|
A program so effective, so ‘user-friendly’ you can (and according to research,
probably will) make it a regular part of your fitness program for the rest of your life!
Now please be clear,
The Runner’s Yoga Program is not another yoga DVD.
(*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:
|A comprehensive set of audio-visual modules that take you step-by-step, literally second-by-second, through every single movement of this amazing 30-minute routine.
So that whether you’re an absolute beginner. Or an experienced ‘yogi’. You’ll learn to do it safely on your own.
And then, whenever and wherever you want, all you’ll have to do is play the Proprietary Audio Recording and follow along to the:
*CORE BREATHING has been used by Monks and Martial Artists in Asia for generations.
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.)
In 30 minutes you’ll balance, stretch, and strengthen your whole body!
No more – “How do I open my hips?” or
“What’s the best stretch for tight hamstrings?” or
“How can I work my core muscles?”
You’ll do it all at once – treating your body like the ECOSYSTEM it is!
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 and you stop needing appointments with doctors, physiotherapists, and chiropractors.
So why is it called Runner’s Yoga?
(If “It’s not just for runners!“)
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 and irritating 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 to recognize that yoga is the most powerful remedy. For both problems – physical and mental.
Not only does yoga give you a balanced, flexible body that is much less prone to injury. (Again, provided it’s taught the right way.) But doing yoga has a profound effect on your mental attitude as well.
don’t have enough time to get to yoga or fitness classes regularly.
I mean, add it up - How long does it actually take you to go do that workout or class? (Including travel, parking, changing, etc.) How often are you going to be able to find that much time in your day … month after month … year after year?
*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.)
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”. (And that’s how it came to be called ‘Runner’s Yoga’.)
The result? Runners loved it! And so did their physiotherapists!
Then pretty soon, 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!
Business Executives … Martial Artists … Busy Moms … People with Injuries … Snowboarders … Mountain Bike Riders – they all found the Runner’s Yoga Program to be so safe. So effective. So scientifically sound. That they started making it a part of their lives.
And why not? Can you imagine what this program means? It means for the rest of your life you’ll be able to stay fit and healthy, physically and mentally, using one routine. 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 complete program (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, every one of them had practiced their short exercise routine regularly – in some cases daily – year after year after year.
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 take the best aspects of each program and incorporate them into a single 30-minute routine.
It took years of testing to make sure:
|Every part of the body is stretched and strengthened.|
|The poses are safe enough for almost anyone to do.|
|The movements and postures flow together with a synergy that increases overall effectiveness.|
|The muscles remain warm enough at all times for safe stretching.|
Until finally I had the routine I was after!
I wanted to add one more thing – the beat.
You see, years ago I came across research that suggests we enjoy some very unique benefits when we listen to the rhythm of 60 beats per minute (BPM):
|The brain and body respond by becoming alert, focused and calm.|
|It has helped lower heart rate and blood pressure in anxious patients.|
|Psychologist Dr. George Lozanov used it to dramatically accelerate learning and improve recall.|
|Drivers have even been shown to drive better when listening to music at this rhythm.|
So I decided to record the whole Runner’s Yoga routine to that special meditative rhythm of 60 BPM.
Every breath, every movement, flows to that rhythmic beat, automatically putting your mind and body into a calm, focused state that allows you to go deeper into the poses.
Synchronizing the routine to that beat also meant I was able to ensure that each Dynamic Stretch is held for at least 30 seconds since studies show this is optimal for INCREASING YOUR RANGE OF MOTION. And any professional athlete will tell you how important that is!
WHY WORRY ABOUT RANGE OF MOTION?
"Matt Biondi, who won 7 Gold medals at the Seoul Olympics, had measurably less arm power than other members on the US swim team, but he had tremendous range of motion in his shoulders."
And why no video?
Quite simply, because I don’t think it’s a good idea to do yoga to a video. Here’s why:
|Possible Injury – There are some positions where the last thing you should be doing is turning your head to look at a video.|
|Limitation – You can only do the routine where you have a TV or video monitor.|
|Impaired Focus – Watching the video sends your focus out of the body, not a good thing if you’re trying to improve your body awareness and stretch safely.|
|Dependence – There is a tendency to become reliant on looking at the video images to know what the pose is.|
So despite some tempting offers, I passed on producing a video.
Instead, I went to work writing VERBAL DIRECTIONS.
Verbal directions that are so clear, calm and flowing that you can move through the routine just using the audio recording. And focus on what you’re feeling, rather than what you’re seeing.
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:
|Variations for each movement and pose so that you can find the one that works best for your body … your fitness … your flexibility.|
|Modern, easy-to-remember names like Hood Ornament, Coffee Table, and Body Surfer for each specially selected yoga pose.|
|Simple instructions that will have you doing the remarkable CORE BREATHING technique in minutes.|
