A bit of yoga for cyclists featuring a lazy dachshund on the left.
Cycling is great exercise, but as with any repetitive motion over time it can take its toll on the body. Common complaints of the ailing cyclist include tight hamstrings and hips, and a sore lower back.
We teamed up with yogi extraordinaire Tamara of People’s Republic of Yoga for a bit of advice on how to rebalance the body, and the result is two 10-minute yoga routines for cyclists. The routines are designed to be just long enough to be beneficial, and short enough to be so convenient that you can do them often – choose Part 1 or Part 2, or switch between them, or do both! Let us know how you get on in the comments below.
This coming April we’re holding two yoga classes in our Edinburgh Bruntsfield shop with our resident yogi, Kirsty. It’s only £10 a pop, so we hope to see you there.
