Increase strength and speed, sharpen focus and spatial awareness. 

 

I have teamed up with super cool bike brand, tokyobike, to run a monthly Yoga for Cyclists workshop from their Shoreditch shop.

 

No matter how serious or relaxed you are about cycling - whether you're a competitive speed cyclist, a budding urban sports star or a commuter - you all have one thing in common: you deserve the best cycling experience possible.

 

Yoga can really help to relieve the physical niggles that come with cycling - from tight hamstrings, calves and thighs, to lower back discomfort and shoulder pain. It also improves mental focus and spatial awareness, which is essential for safe cycling in the city. 

 

Here are just some of the benefits of a regular yoga practice for cyclists:

 

  • Softens muscles, making them more lean and supple

  • Mobilises joints and increases flexibility

  • Enhances speed and strength

  • Better balance results in better coordination

  • Sharpens mental control and focus

  • Improves spatial awareness

  • Provides fast, safe and lasting rehabilitation from existing injuries

  • Deeper sleep, meaning more effective natural restoration 

  • Alleviates stress and promotes calm   

  • Promotes overall systemic, muscular-skeletal and mental health

 

The 90min workshops are priced at £15, and run from 7.30pm - 9pm. Next workshop is on Wednesday 30th April Tokyobike in Shoreditch.
