This yoga for cyclists and runners course helps build strength, mobility, and better movement.

I liked the bike specific poses and learning several new poses I had not done before. This class has made me more mindful while I am out biking and falling into bad form habits. Definitely a necessary practice for my overall fitness/strength plan.? (Brien, 50)

We do things a little differently than other classes, so it’s worth trying!

Yoga for Cyclists and Runners Meets the Needs of Older Endurance Athletes

I created the course as I was doing these specific yoga routines to deal with my own physical issues after workouts.?

As an athlete who spends a lot of time on the bike, running, and skiing in the winter, and as a certified yoga instructor, I knew yoga provided a way to realign my body, make me stronger, and improve my focus.?

The Yoga for Endurance Athletes course will:?

  • provide relief for back, neck, and shoulder pain
  • build lateral and rotational strength and mobility
  • develop better posture
  • improve your strength, endurance, and balance
  • and improve your breathing capacity

(provided you do the twice-a-week practices!)

?With a focus on hips, glutes, and reducing hunched posture, this course is a great way for cyclists to make sure they are getting the most out of their on and off bike days. Paul is a knowledgeable guide as he highlights poses and flows that are beneficial for cyclists, but also places an appropriate emphasis on the breath – something we all need more of.? (Steve, 55)

Yoga for Endurance Athletes is a six-week course of yoga for runners and cyclists to improve strength, mobility, and joint and core stability.

Strength Training and Yoga for “Regular” People

I’m not a former dancer or gymnast.

Nor am I an Instagram model! Clearly…

So these are courses for regular people who ride, run, or ski and want to get stronger, feel better, and increase mobility and stability.

Many Instagram yoga models can do twisty and bendy poses like headstands and wheel poses.

I can’t do that.

My Downward Dog isn’t a straight line from my hips to my hands; my Triangle is awkward at best. Age and a lot of healed broken bones make mobility a challenge.

But I keep practicing, keep moving, keep getting stronger, and keep working on my breathing.

And it’s making a difference in my movement.

Two Yoga for Cyclists and Runners Classes Per Week

Each week in the Yoga for Endurance Athletes, you?ll receive two yoga sessions:

1. A 35 to 45-minute strength and mobility focused class that focuses on breathing, dynamic movement, and core/ hip strength through holding poses for several breaths.

2. A 10 to 20-minute recovery class that focuses on opening your front body, stretching your hips and side body, and opening your shoulders and neck.?

The strength and mobility class will focus on building core and hip strength by holding poses like Warriors for several breaths.

We will also focus on holding twists like Triangles to build rotational strength.

Finally, we will also work on building core strength through poses that require front and back stability.

Each week, you?ll get a different practice that gradually increases in challenging poses. We always start with breath practice, learning to draw breath in through our noses and into our bellies.

Through deep, focused breathing and full isometric activation of large muscle groups, you will build a foundation of strength, stability, and mobility that will make you faster, stronger, and more injury-resistant.?

The recovery class will focus on upper body openers, like Cobra, hip openers like Pigeon and Lunges, and twists to gently open your spine to create more mobility and aid recovery.?

?Having poses specific to cycling is a huge advantage over “regular” yoga classes I have experienced in “big box” exercise facilities.? (David, 45)
