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.

Why discipline is important in yoga

What keeps you from having a powerful practice and making lasting changes is often your ego, as it wants to stay in control. Your ego wants to stay in comfort, and doesn’t want to be challenged. To release from the suffering, we need to go beyond the ego and the fluctuations of the mind. Understand when it’s necessary to be used, and when we need to ask it to be quiet.

The Secrets of Manifestation explained with real life

Manifestation is so powerful that it is sometimes hard to believe. Then we think of coincidence and forget that all things happen as they are supposed to.

What is self care and why is it important

What is self care? You know deep down what makes you feel good, and that is self care. We all have different needs and only you know what it means for you. Yes it can be a bubble bath and face mask, but deep down its the real heartfelt act of caring for yourself and being your own support system. Self care is a huge part of self love, loving yourself enough to care and look after your needs.

I met Julia at a retreat and she is an amazing teacher and a really lovely human. I loved how she didn't rush through the process and we really went back to basics, while at the same time learning a wide variety of things about yoga, from how to do a certain asana to yogic wisdom. It was obvious that Julia knows a lot and she is also really good at sharing it with others. She redefined in my mind what a good yoga teacher is.

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!)
