Cycling in all its forms—as fun as it is—takes a toll on your body. Whether you’re an elite level competitive road cyclist, a cross country endurance mountain biker, a weekend warrior, or bike commuter—the miles add up and are stored in the muscles and tendons of your hips, spine, neck, shoulders and pretty much everything in between. BikeYoga helps you feel, ride, and live with less pain and discomfort, more ease and strength. Some of the many benefits include:
- Experience less muscle soreness after riding.
- Recover faster and more easily.
- Improve stamina and endurance.
- Improve range of motion in major joints.
- Reach your peak performance.
- Reduce or eliminate postural pain.
BikeYoga is yoga created by and for cyclists. This is not yoga for super-bendy “yoga people”. No experience is necessary to begin this program. BikeYoga offers simple self-care tools for people who are short on time. This beginner-friendly practice is accessible to all ages and abilities.
BikeYoga is a simple approach to balancing and optimizing the cyclist’s body. It combines the ancient technology of yoga with modern therapeutic movement. The result is an easy-to-follow program that relieves pain and restriction of movement, strengthens muscle imbalances, and improves stamina, endurance and recovery.
“But I’m too inflexible to do yoga.”
You do not do BikeYoga because you already are flexible. You do it to become more flexible. Saying you are too stiff, old, overweight, or ________ (insert other excuse here) is like saying you are too thirsty to drink. Flexibility is important for many reasons: It helps with power transfer, recovery, stamina, and endurance. And if things go wrong—as they sometimes do—flexibility can help you avoid a more serious injury if you crash.
“But I don’t have time to do yoga.”
Just 15-20 minutes of yoga exercises a day or even every other day will improve your flexibility and core strength. Regular, persistent, smaller practices work better than episodic intense once-weekly sessions. The key to success isn’t how well you execute each pose on a given day—it is in consistency, perseverance and regularity.
