Yoga Designed for Cyclists
This is an off season cross training class for cyclists. Lots of good core work and stability work as well as plenty for your hips, spine, IT band and hamstrings. A great way to keep the muscles strong and supple in the off season.
Why, Yoga for Cyclist? Yoga, a practice that dates back many thousands of years, has great benefits for today’s cyclists. At its core, yoga is an exercise for the body and mind that leads to greater aerobic strength, flexibility and focus. Some of the most elite cyclists use yoga as part of a successful training program, including 2012 Tour De France winner Bradley Wiggins1. Wiggins’ benefits from the focus it brings to his cycling, while others, such as pro mountain biker and Olympian Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski, use yoga to gain strength2.
From power to endurance, athletes at all levels are incorporating yoga to gain an edge over the competition, and prevent injury.
When you address lower body tightness and learn to integrate lower body muscle function through specific stretches for your hips and lower back, you make strides toward more power on the pedals.
The 75 minute classes will take place on Sunday mornings at 3SIXTY5 Cycling in downtown Galt, Cambridge, ON.
Duration: 75 mins.
