Yoga for Cyclists

Did you know that yoga can improve your cycling performance?

 

Efficient oxygen intake!

Good breathing is vital, especially when you request endurance performance from your body. Yoga helps you to optimize the ratio between muscles used for a single breath and the amount of oxygen you take in with it.

Avoid pain during long rides

You are in a pretty static bent-over position on your bike, hips and lower back become tight. Yoga can help loosen these muscles, as well as strengthen them. Strong muscles will support your body during long rides and neck, shoulder and back pain get minimized.

Strong core

Your core, neck and shoulders get stretched and strengthened during your yoga practice, from which you will benefit particularly during your long rides.

Power legs

The asana (posture) practice in yoga offers a big variety of standing poses, those will strengthen your legs from the big toe to the hips. And sometimes you find some muscles during your yoga practice you haven’t even heard of yet.

Focus

Meditation has been shown to improve focus, willpower and awareness. Riding at a fast pace can be dangerous. An aware mind can be crucial to stay safe on your bike. To win that race you do not only need the strength in your body, a strong mind and willpower will get you that extra power you needed to beat your competition.

The problem with free yoga

And then I thought there is something really wrong with our ‘everything needs to be for free culture’, which I started to observe more and more. And this is not about the people who really do not have the money to afford things, it is about this culture that we can afford something, but we do not want to spend money on it.

Practice Vulnerability

I am sitting on the floor. My back towards the bed. My body curled into a little ball. Tears are running down my cheeks. I am sobbing. My boyfriend comes in to comfort me. He says: “this is a great teaching. Learn to live with the chaos around you. You are a great teacher, and now you need to be your own teacher.”

Do you speak the truth?

But it may not be as simple, as not lying someone in their face. It is to strive to avoid even the smallest misimpression in the mind of the person listening to you. So their picture in their mind needs to match the picture we have in our mind about what we speak. Any difference created on purpose is lying.

Julia is one of the most precious yoga teacher I’ve ever had! I would recommend all her practices with a special mention for her yoga nidra. I got so relaxed and so deeply calmed down by her voice during each session, she helped me letting it go towards either a tight sleep or for restful nap. Very powerful experience and human being. thank you Warrior Princess!

Julia ably and effortlessly led a vinyasa class with clear instruction and really helpful assists. She spoke about philosophy just the right amount, there was still plenty of space and quiet to really get into the practice. Thank you Julia!! I loved it

Julia is an amazing teacher. I have had three classes with her so far and she already improved my asanas a lot. I appreciate her hands on experience and eye for detail. Thank you Julia. Big hug! (by the way: her guided meditations are the best!)
