...BikeYoga: Flexibility + pain-relief for cyclists | BikeYoga

BikeYoga

Flexibility, core strength, and pain relief for cyclists.

What Is BikeYoga?

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. They’re 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, and 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 already-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 excuses 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, recurring, short practices work better than intense, random or once-weekly sessions. The key to success isn’t how well you execute the exercises on a given day; success lies in consistency, perseverance, and regularity.
