Whatever the bike, whatever the experience, whatever the distance – if you like to cycle, then you’ll find this course beneficial to help prevent injury, speed up recovery and improve performance.
The repetitive leg movement when cycling can lead to tightness in the quads, the hamstrings, the calves and the external hip rotators. Tightness in these muscles can eventually lead to pulling on the lower back, creating lower back pain. This can also further lead to misalignment of the hips or pelvis. Other than the repetitive leg movement, cyclists spend most of their time bent forward over the handlebars, which leads to tight hip flexors and rounding through the back.
This course will provide some poses and sequences that can be used to help reduce the tightness of these muscles. The course will also show you how you can open the chest to counteract the rounding forward, and we’ll go through a few wrist and neck stretches, as well as a couple of strengthening poses.
Cycling is a great sport – we can make it even better by looking after our muscles both before and after a cycle. Yoga can be used as a tool to help you achieve this and this course will show you how. So join me for this course and see how yoga for cyclists can help you.
Of course, if you’re not a cyclist, but have some of the tight muscles mentioned above, then you’ll also likely find these course beneficial – so feel free to join in on the fun!
