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.
