Not as pictured or described, but quite interesting and useful

I requested this item online: http://www.aadl.org/catalog/record/1337194, which is listed as including well-known Power Yoga instructors Thom Birch and Beryl Bender Birch in the Additional Details section. The cover image shown, however, is from a title with instructor Christine Felstead (see http://www.amazon.com/Christine-Felsteads-Yoga-Runners-Essentials/dp/B001OA7ZKS/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1343996934&sr=8-3-fkmr0)

The actual item I received and checked out matches the call number (DVD 613.704 YO), and the title, Yoga for Runners, but instead is a recorded session from a 2008 fitness conference in Las Vegas by instructor Simone Hodgkinson. It's a nice video, with some excellent modifications and exercises for people tight in the hips and shoulders, which describes many if not most runners. Ms. Hodgkinson describes herself as a longtime fitness instructor who came to Pilates and later yoga after a debilitating car accident caused her to slow down and need a more therapeutic approach to fitness. The precision of the Iyengar method is well suited to the therapeutic approach taken here. Props including a yoga strap (or belt or tie, in a pinch) and a foam roller are used to assist the participants to reach their own edge while maintaining control and support. Several poses are done against the wall to similar effect. Regular standing poses are also included.

I have not been able to find a reference link to the actual DVD title, but this is the website of the organization that ran the conference: http://www.ideafit.com/ The organization offers an online video library to subscribers which might include the title reviewed or similar segments; I have not verified these suppositions, as membership is required. The most recent DVD videos they offer for sale in their online store are from 2009 conferences.
