Good performance in cycling involves strength, endurance and muscle care. That’s why we’ve partnered with YogaWorks in Soho to offer a workshop on “Yoga for Cyclists”.
Cyclists are concerned about back issues and core strength, and yoga offers some key postures that help on and off-road flexibility and body/mind balance. Imbalance can lead to injury – and poorer performance, on- and off-road. And of course, breathing matters. Learning proper breathing technique provides better stamina and higher-endurance for workouts.
