What is the course about?
Cyclists draw on the strength of particular muscles which over time become bunched up and tight, creating stress and tension and sometimes complications. This course introduces yoga postures and practices that target the release and lengthening of these muscles resulting in overall physical relief, enhanced posture and a lighter, more fluid flow of the cycling movement. Yoga also protects the body by making it stronger. Breathing and relaxation practices reduce stress both on and off the bike.

Sarah qualified as an Inner Yoga Trust and British Wheel of Yoga registered teacher / practitioner. She danced from the age of four, and was first moved by Yoga when she was 16, though it has not always been easy for her to access as she is partially deaf. She has taught Deaf Yoga classes for staff members at DCAL (Deafness Cognition & Language Research Centre), Deaf Plus, Sign Health, DeafWorks, Oak Lodge School, Remark!, Special Yoga Centre, Sense and the Deaf Multilingual Community Service. Sarah’s yoga is an expression of and has evolved from her understanding of the teachings and a mix of Scaravelli informed, Iyengar and Satyanada Yoga.
