Athletes have different needs than the typical yogi. They come to the practice with more tightness from hours spent training, little time for lengthy sessions, and at the height of the season they often abandon yoga classes altogether for demanding sport-specific training. In this accessible guide, yoga teacher Sage Rountree makes it easy for athletes to reap the benefits of the practice year-round. Designed to complement a rigorous training schedule, the book includes quick, five-minute warm-up

    Gets into all of the tight spots, July 10, 2009

    I wasn’t sure I would want to do yoga from a book, but the pictures are clear and concise and having some moderate yoga experience helps. But being a book I can carry it to any place in the house to get some quiet yoga time.

    I have been doing a yoga video to try to stretch out my tight hips and lower back, it was good overall but it wasn’t helping where I needed it.
    This book has very specific flows for post swim, post bike and post run workouts that really target those tight spots. They even worked on some spots I didn’t realize were tight! Especially my hamstrings and my achilles. I am now considering buying the companion video.

    This has to be the best book on yoga I’ve come across in years. When I’m doing an activity like yoga, I really don’t want to read long prose on how to do something. I just want to see it, then do it. And that’s exactly how this book is presented. There’s a brief guide for absolute beginners at the beginning, a quick guide to things you might need – such as, how to pick a good mat – but then it goes into page after page of image sequences about poses (5-10 minutes), then a section towards the end on full routines that can take an hour (or more). It’s a great mix&match guide to build your own routines, or use theirs, depending on your needs and skill and time restraints. It also has a spiral binding which is great to just lay open when you’re trying things out. I definitely recommend this to athletes and non-athletes like myself.

    I have always done a little yoga, learned from ballet. I recently started up road cycling and this book has really helped! As I am not in ballet anymore I do not stretch like I used to and I knew I had to start again. I don’t know if this book would be good for a true beginner, but for someone who already knows about stretches (and proper form – very important) this is a good simple book. I especially like that there are different levels, from those with very little flexibility yet, to those that are rubber bands. Doing the stretches after cycling really makes a difference the next day – I am also noticing that I am not getting neck pain from work (typing, computer) which is a very pleasant unexpected bonus!
